Vegan Cornbread Zucchini Pancakes

Vegan Cornbread Zucchini Pancakes

Pancakes are one of my absolute favourite breakfasts – I simply don’t get tired of them! Banana and buckwheat, oat and poppy seed, chocolate with berries! All yummy, delicious and nutritious. But cornbread and zucchini? If I’m sure about that combination? Yes I am, and you ought to try it! 

But first: let’s watch that coconut syrup drizzle down that gorgeous stack of pancakes, shall we?
