Valentine Pancakes

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 very ripe banana, mashed
1 egg
¾ cup milk
2 tablespoons unrefined coconut oil***
1 tablespoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt

Preheat a griddle or cast iron skillet over medium heat. Grease with butter if necessary. Beat egg with whisk until fluffy, then add flour, mashed banana, milk, oil, baking powder and salt. Beat in just until smooth. If necessary, add 1 or 2 tablespoons milk to thin the batter. Using a funnel, pour batter into a large squeeze bottle (like a clean ketchup bottle). Squeeze out the batter onto the hot griddle to form shapes or letters, like hearts and XOXO. Flip pancakes carefully with spatula when surface shows many small bubbles.

For a special breakfast in bed, place pancakes that spell I (heart) U on a large serving plate and be sure to bring 2 forks and lots of strawberries and fresh whipped cream to share.

***Coconut oil is solid at room temperature and requires a warm climate to remain in liquid form. If you are not fortunate enough to live in a tropical region, simply warm the oil slightly on the stove or in the oven before you make the pancakes. Be sure to warm up extra coconut oil if you plan to have an intimate moment that morning. Unrefined coconut oil is a perfect natural lubricant and body oil with a pleasantly sweet coconut taste and smell. Enjoy!
