Double Coconut Pancakes with Homemade Coconut Syrup

One of our favorite parts of our honeymoon in Maui was the coconut syrup we enjoyed every day at breakfast. Despite looking everywhere, I've only found it in stores once- and the taste was nothing like what we enjoyed on the island. This weekend, I decided to make coconut pancakes with homemade coconut syrup... it was super easy and tasted so fresh and sweet- it was just like we remembered!
