Blueberry and Coconut Pancakes

pcakes.

I absolutely love my breakfasts at the weekend. Especially when I can rise late and the sun is shining through my window and I can take the time to really enjoy my first meal of the day, rather than eating my homemade granola from a tupperware whilst catching up on my emails!! Pancakes are such a treat on a saturday morning; quick to make, full of nourishing ingredients and you can add whatever you have in the fridge or cupboards at the time!

This is one of my favourite pancake recipes. The blueberries and coconut compliment each other so well and I love the way in which the blueberry juice spreads as the pancakes cook. They are packed with protein and therefore make a great brunch that will see you through until dinner time with just a light snack in between!
