Banana Coconut Pancakes

Sunday pancakes are a little tradition for James and I these days; mostly because by the time Sunday rolls around, all we have  left is whatever is in the pantry! Sunday is also our only day to relax together in the morning, so having a later, more decadent breakfast feels a little luxurious and comforting. These banana coconut pancakes are delicious, filling and a little more exciting than regular pancakes (not to mention a little prettier with the sprinkling of shredded coconut on top!)
