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! 😉

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! 😉
