Father's Day breakfast needs to be a thing in all households. This is perfect for just that! These delicious pancakes are also good for him...a little bit decadent if you do it right, (more berries, more cacao nibs, more coconut cream) but super good for gut health. And did you know pecans help stifle the munchies hormone, satisfy your appetite and aid with weight loss...pass the pecans please!
And don't even start me on the health benefits of cacao...magnesium, iron, fibre, mood enhancement...the list of reasons for eating this pure chocolate are endless. I prefer them roasted, so I put them on a paper lined tray into a cold oven set to 160°C for an hour. They are sooo good, and your house will also smell amazing!
Happy Father's Day, happy mixing to you if you are making these for Father's Day, but don't forget this recipe is here. Use it any time...breakfast is served.

Brush with a little oil and fry pancakes one at a time, turning very carefully. They are quite delicate until flipped, so be careful. Add more oil as needed and cook them all.
