Carrots & Coconut

Good morning my little marshmallow peeps! Happy Easter Sunday! I hope you are all having a great holiday and are able to spend it with family and friends. And for those of you who gave up sweets for Lent…try not to get too much of a tummy ache! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Pretty sure the kiddos around these parts are going to be hunting for Easter eggs in the dryer and under the sofa today…unless they WANT to take a little trip to Oz…

Wait, what’s that I hear?

Yeah, I had a feeling it was you little guys!

When I think about Easter, the first things that always come to mind are carrots and coconut. So I figured today would be the perfect day to whip up a batch of some rich and creamy homemade coconut butter!

Mmmmmm!

As content as I could be just going at this with a spoon, I figured it’d be best to actually have a real breakfast this morning. And what’s the best thing to have for breakfast on Easter Sunday? Carrot Pan-CAKES of course!

I know I’ve never repeated a recipe for Pancake Sunday before, but who could pass up the chance to have carrot “cake” for breakfast this morning? Not this girl!

I followed my recipe from my recipe tab, but since I didn’t have any pineapple juice, I had to improvise a bit…pineapple Greek yogurt anyone? Yes, please!

I also omitted the honey from the original recipe and didn’t miss the sweetness a bit!

Pancakes filled to the brim with carrots, raisins, pineapple, and walnuts…what more could you ask for on Easter…well, other than a little sunshine?

Now, if you’ll excuse me, there is a gigantic mug of ginger tea calling my name! Hope you all have a lovely Sunday! “See” you tomorrow!

What is your favorite Easter candy?
I’ve never been a fan of peeps….I like marshmallows, but I’m sorry, peeps are right up there with the Lollipop Guild on a level of creepiness. :-/

My fave would have to be Reese’s eggs…though I’ve made up my mind that I AM going to try a Cadbury egg for the first time this year…tomorrow, when they go on sale! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Your pancakes look great as usual! We had the Pioneer Woman’s Overnight Baked French Toast! Happy Easter!

  2. The boys love Reese’s eggs. All three of them. That’s what they got today along with jelly belly’s which are my favorite! Happy Easter and I hope the sun shines for you today!

    • Mmm, I just had a couple of jelly belly’s yesterday! Is it weird that my favorite flavor is the buttered popcorn? Everyone always looks at me funny when I say that! Haha!

      And believe it or not, the sun DID peek out for a couple of hours yesterday! Yay!

  3. I’d have to say the Reese’s eggs as well… I am not a Peep fan, although they are cute ๐Ÿ™‚ and the Cadbury’s are way too sweet for me… good call on waiting until after Easter sale!

    Happy Easter!

  4. I LOVE giant Reese’s eggs! I considered buying some this year, but I always feel like death after I eat them. We have cloudy weather here too ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Such a bummer! I wanted to eat in my backyard!

    • Death, huh? Wait a minute, how giant are we talking here??

      Boo for bad weather! I’m ready for some sunshine, but surprise, surprise…they’re calling for rain AGAIN today! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Cadbury mini eggs are my favorite. Not to be confused with the Cadbury Creme eggs which I don’t like.

  6. AHH I LOVE your festive pancakes!!!!!! so nice! my fav easter candy?!not sure if its easterish but chocolate!

  7. Best pancake Sunday EVER! Carrot cake is my favorite dessert and I’m so sad I’m not home to have my mom’s homemade carrot cake on Easter this year. Enjoy your weekend love!!

  8. Ginger tea and I are so on again off again. We just can’t commit.

    • Hahaha! That’s great! Oh, I needed a good giggle this morning! Early on in our “relationship,” I just couldn’t find it within myself to trust ginger tea…until I tried Yogi. It’s my absolute favorite! All that great ginger taste without that killer bite afterwards! Have you ever tried it?

  9. oh maaaan, I need those pancakes in my life!! they look amazing…and I am sort of a bit of a carrot cake fiend ๐Ÿ˜‰

  13. Lindsay says:

    Carrots and coconut are one of my favorite combos. They go so well together I think. But then again I tend to add coconut to just about everything ๐Ÿ™‚ Cute post!

  14. Can’t wait to hear if you LOVE cadbury creme eggs as much as i do ๐Ÿ™‚
    Hope you had a lovely easter!

  15. Those pancakes look amazing!! I want! I’ve never been a huge Easter candy fan–except for black jelly beans. I was an odd kid (still am).

  16. Homemade coconut butter? Yummm, yes, please!
    My favorite are mini reese’s peanut butter eggs. Delicious! I’m not a fan of cabury eggs…*shudder*

  17. Emilia says:

    I’m drooling just looking at your amazing photos. Stop, PLEASE stop now ๐Ÿ™‚ Haha, just kidding. You know I love and appreciate each and every one of your amazinggg photos. Did you really make that much coconut butter? Whenever I make my own, I can’t seen to make enough….

    You know I love carrot and coconut oh SO much- so I’ll be making these a-sap. With buckwheat or millet flour, that is ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I actually ended up with this jar and another little one (probably about 1/4 the size)! I just dumped the whole container of shredded coconut in the food processor and voila! Though it was more like: process, process, process, scrape, scrap, scrape…voila! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      And you are too sweet girlie! You make me blush!

  18. Emilia says:

    I absolutely adore that mug, by the way.
    Anthropolgie, maybe? ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. Those pancakes looks SO delicious! I could eat one for dinner right now ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. Growing up I love love LOVED Cadbury eggs, followed by the Reese’s eggs, and then the little candy coated Cadbury mini chocolate eggs. Peeps freak me the eff out!! ๐Ÿ˜‰
