Tropical Coconut Protein Pancakes

In a 1 week time span, it snowed twice and then reached 50+ degrees.  Welcome to New England.  I knew I needed something tropical for breakfast, to counteract the snow and compliment the warmer days.  Therefore, Coconut Pancakes were created to bring the tropical feel to my day!
