I saw a tasty picture of coconut pancakes on Pinterest yesterday. I knew they needed to be in my life! The recipe was from scratch however and I knew that making something from scratch in the AM did not need to be in my life. Plus the recipe called for things I didn’t have.
So, I pulled out my handy dandy whole wheat pancake mix. I figured I could make enough substitutions to make them coconut pancakes.
It called for an egg. Which reminded me to go out to the coop and feed the chickens. I came back with four eggs. Good job ladies. Thanks. 🙂
The back of the box also calls for a few tablespoons of vegetable oil. I used coconut oil. And a cup of milk. I used coconut milk. I also threw in about a tablespoon of my new coconut butter and a few pinches of shredded coconut, for good measure.
They were so so so good. The perfect amount of coconut. I used coconut butter instead of syrup. And added more shredded coconut to the top. Because, well, why not!?
There were none left over. There were just a few tiny bites left, which we saved for the chickens. 🙂
