Happy Easter!! These pancakes were on the menu at our blended family Easter Brunch. I tested out these pancakes on the hubs last week and he loved them ~ they are loaded with shredded carrots, banana, coconut & pecans. I topped them with cream cheese frosting, syrup, more coconut and a Lindt mini chocolate bunny. Yummilicious!
