On most Sunday mornings in this house we all enjoy pancakes and I’m always trying to think of new flavours for us to try. Recently I have been buying frozen coconut from the supermarket and I thought it would taste great in a pancake. So I got to work in the kitchen and I know how much I love chocolate.
The first batch I tried with just chocolate but I don’t think I put enough in. When I told my husband what we were having for breakfast his first comment was, ‘ah a Bounty breakfast.’ For those of you that don’t know a Bounty is a chocolate bar that contains a creamy coconut centre and a chocolate coating. They are yummy so I was excited to try the pancakes.
However, the first batch didn’t taste chocolatey enough for my husband and I. Then I asked Ted what he liked in his pancakes and he said raisins. So I then decided to add these too and we ended up with a fantastic breakfast that we will definitely be eating again. These pancakes were yummy delicious and well worth a try.

Chocolate, Coconut and Raisin Pancakes are yummy and there were clean plates when I served these bad boys at breakfast. The ingredients are freezable however, if you are using frozen coconut it’s not best to refreeze it after it’s been in the pancake mix. I would cook all of the mix and then freeze the leftover pancakes. If using dessicated coconut then you are OK to freeze the mix. However you decide to eat these delicious pancakes, as always, enjoy.
