I’m having such a proud mommy moment right now! Our teenager made some lilikoi (passion fruit) pancakes for me this weekend. What an awesome breakfast-in-bed treat!
Lilikoi is a popular local flavor in Hawaii. If you’ve been following our posts, you’ll find that we like to talk about Hawaii a lot since we’re Hawaii transplants living in Florida. We also love to talk about lilikoi and you’ll find it infused in some of our Hawaii local grindz recipes!
We order our lilikoi reinforcements online from local shops in Hawaii and it’s always a treat when they arrive in the mail! We have found that it helps to have a decent amount of Hawaii food, snacks, and ingredients around so that we’re prepared whenever we’d have guests over for the holidays (or for any occasion). God continues to bless us with the opportunity to spread the aloha spirit with people through food!
Food speaks volumes. Food is a language of love 🙂
Anyway, the mini lilikoi pancakes are great–with or without lilikoi syrup! Personally, we think that the syrup-less mini pancakes are great for road trips. Road trip food doesn’t have to be boring, don’t ya think?
Aren’t these mini pancakes just gorgeous?
If you’re looking for some breakfast-in-bed ideas, why not surprise someone with these unique treats from Hawaii?
Maybe you’re still undecided about a gift for someone close to your heart. How about giving that special someone a touch of Aloha with these mini lilikoi pancakes drizzled with some liquid sunshine (lilikoi syrup)? They’re super easy to make! You can get the prepackaged pancake mixes and syrups online at Only From Hawaii or Amazon. You might also want to check out Aunty Lilikoi!

Yummy! Those looks seriously delicious. I actually never knew what lilikoi meant until a bakery opened up near my house with that name and the owner told me it was passion fruit in Hawaii!

These pancakes look amazing! I love all of your Hawaiian themed posts, I’m learning so much! As a homeschooling family we’re always looking for new ways to learn about different cultures. I don’t mind a day or so doing the tourist thing, but when I’m traveling I like to find out where the locals hang out, what they do, and what their favorites are. That’s the best way to experience a new place. You’re bringing Hawaii to me!
