the pancakes

i was happy to see that a few of you were curious about the pancakes i had for breakfast yesterday.
hannah liked them so much that she wanted them for breakfast again today! so i took a few more photos, and decided to share the recipe :) i was in the mood for leftovers so i simply halved this recipe just for her.

chocolate chip coconut pancakes

(serves 2 / makes 6 small pancakes)

1 cup of flour (i used unbleached white)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup milk substitute of choice (i use so delicious coconut)
1 tbsp sunflower oil
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup chocolate chips

in a medium mixing bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and coconut. add the milk and oil and stir until just combined. add the chocolate chips and mix one more time.

in a large skillet over medium heat, melt some earth balance or whatever margarine you choose. using a 1/4 measuring cup, scoop the batter and drop into the pan. i don't have any special tricks for making them perfectly round. just pick one spot for the batter and keep it dripping into the center. the pancake will spread out evenly into a circle. make 3-4 per batch.

wait for the pancakes to get those little holes over the surface. flip carefully and cook about 3 more minutes or until browned. serve with your favorite syrup.

*if making a second batch, turn the heat down to low. keeping it too hot will make the pancakes too dark without cooking them all the way through. once the pan cools down a bit you can turn the heat back up.

i used a medium skillet here, which works, they just get smooshed together :)

the little holes. i've heard them called bubbles before but to me they look like holes!

ahhh perfect :)

served with a bit of earth balance and agave drizzled on top.

please let me know what you think if you try these :)
