COCONUT PEANUT BUTTER PANCAKES

I love peanut and if I could I would eat it every other day. Whether it’s whole roasted peanuts or smooth peanut butter, I just love this stuff! Reminds me of when we were young back in the 80’s when peanut butter was a new thing and it was a reserve of the “wadosi” (rich folk), we would really envy those kids who came with bread slices smeared withe the peanut butter while we had plain toasts, seems ridiculous but when you are a kid in kindergarten you always think that the other kids have better lunches or tea break snacks. Then came this advert for the skippy peanut butter, we would always sing along to it and really bug mum about buying ‘skippy peanut butter’. Well she gave in and bought us the peanut butter, what? You’d think we had won the lottery! Needless to say, after that it was a regular addition to our breakfast and we thoroughly enjoyed making the other kids jealous and even bribing them with ‘if you don’t let me in the game, I won’t give you my skippy peanut butter bread’, nice memories hehehe. To bring back those memories, I though I would make peanut butter pancakes and add more deliciousness by adding coconut. Those two flavours just work wonders on your pallet.
