Mochonut Pancakes filled with Coconilla Yogurt

5 Apr

It all started when I went to the local Christian coffee shop to study, and asked them to make me something yummy, something new for once from my usual latte. They made me this mocha coconut latte. Do I need say any more? Maybe that it was heaven in a cup?

Well last week, I was planning on entering a pancake competition via Instagram (Follow me @FreshFitnHealthy) :). Each week for three weeks this user was going to make a category of pancake to enter. Last week the theme was “protein pancakes”.

Naturally I accepted the challenge. I kept asking myself, what is something new, something really unique. And after having this latte, I knew what I should create.

Mocha Coconut latte flavored pancakes, Mochonut for short :) Unfortunately, I didn’t win the contest. But this week is a new week, and it’s berry pancake theme! Wish me good luck! But for now, here is the recipe for these still awesome(even though not first place), pancakes:)
