St Patrick's Day Lucky Coconut Pancakes


  • 2/3 cup dry pancake mix
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup shredded sweetened coconut
  • green food coloring at least 10 drops


  • Prepare pancake batter by mixing together mix and water until combined.
  • In a separate bowl add coconut and mix in drops of green food coloring (I started with 6 and kept adding until it was a darker green) and stir with a fork until colored and well coated.
  • Add half the coconut to the batter and stir.
  • Heat a griddle or skillet over medium heat and add non stick spray.
  • To make silver dollar size, add a couple spoonfuls of batter (a fist sized circle) for each pancake.
  • Cook until bubbles form then flip.
  • Sprinkle some more colored coconut on top then finish cooking.
  • Remove to a plate to keep warm and continue cooking the remaining batter and adding coconut on top. You should get about 7-9 pancakes.
  • Now using a medium sized shamrock cookie cutter cut out shapes in all the pancakes.
  • You could also use a small heart cutter and cut out 3 small heart pancakes to make a shamrock shape.
  • Add shamrock pancakes to a plate and sprinkle with any remaining green coconut.
  • Serve warm and enjoy!
