Blueberry-Coconut Peanut Butter Cookie Pancakes

IMG_2831

Now THAT’s a mouthful huh?  No pun intended.  Look at this beautiful stack of pancakes though!  Peanut butter protein.  Oatmeal.  Coconut butter icing.  Coconut peanut butter.  Plump blueberries.  I actually took the time to make something other than oatmeal on this beautiful Sunday morning.  I somehow can NEVER sleep in on Sundays and am usually up before the rest of the people in my world (ie before 7:30 am).  I like to enjoy my cup (or two) of coffee quitely and then proceed to a satisfying breakfast before the day.  99.9% of the time, I am eating oatmeal.  My same recipe that I eat the other 6 days of the week.  If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it right?  But today, TODAY was different.  I wanted a fluffy stack of pancakes and that’s just what I got.

The SECRET??

Coconut flour.  Yes, 1 measley tablespoon of coconut flour makes all the difference.  And coconut flour is worth it-most recipes call for a small amount so the bag lasts forever!  I have a large bag of Bob’s Red Mill brand that I keep in the freezer because I have had it forever.

These will NOT dissapoint and are honestly the best pancake recipe I have had in AWHILE. So fluffy and moist.
