I’m realizing more and more that pancakes don’t make it onto our breakfast table very often. I’m not sure why though. They’re easy to make, they make a great side to any breakfast plate or can stand proudly on their own and they’re just really delicious. Plus, we seem to always get them if we’re dining out for breakfast or brunch, but we just really don’t make them at home enough.
Recently my dude and I have been consciously making an effort to cook ‘more exciting’ breakfasts/brunches on the weekends, other than scrambled eggs and avocado toast (nothing wrong with that of course, but sometimes you just need to change things up) and we started last weekend with these Brown Sugar, Blueberry and Coconut Pancakes! Ugh, they’re so good. I love the simplicity of pancake recipes, but also how there are endless possibilities and flavor combinations that you can easily muster up!
Also, if you guys haven’t watched the show ‘Stranger Things’ yet (SO FREAKIN’ GOOD), this weekend is the PERFECT time to make a fat stack of these pancakes and binge watch the show! Since my fiance and I have already blazed through the show we’ll be binge watching ‘Hell on Wheels’ with a stack of these beauties and some bacon for sure, lol. Enjoy! xx, Jenny
