1/4 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 teaspoon sugar (optional)
pinch of salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup finely ground shredded coconut
1/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1. Combine the eggs, cream, coconut oil, sugar, and salt in a medium sized bowl.
2. In a separate bowl, mix the baking powder,nutmeg,cinnamon and ground coconut.
3. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix gently until completely incorporated.
4. Heat a skillet over medium heat and melt a bit of butter or coconut oil.
5. Spoon batter into skillet, making one or two at a time. Take care to not let pancakes run into each other. Let cook until edges start to brown, add walnuts then flip gently and let cook for another minute on other side. Serve immediately. They are so delicious and easy to make.
