Vegan Pancakes with Strawberries and Bananas

Pancakes aren't something I make often now that I'm low grain but I couldn't resist this delicious looking vegan recipe my cousin posted on her facebook page. Note: you can make it grain free by substituting milled flaxseed for the flour and egg whites for the coconut milk. Of course, then it won't be vegan ;)

1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
generous 1/4 tsp nutmeg
generous 1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 cinnamon
pinch or two kosher salt
3/4 cup coconut milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp maple syrup
3/4 cup warm water
oil, for skillet
strawberries and bananas

Preheat the over to 250 degrees and grab a baking sheet. Whisk the dry ingredients (flour, coconut, baking soda, baking poder, spices and salt) in a medium bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients (coconut milk, warm water, vanilla, maple syrup) and then add to teh dry ingredients. Whisk well until no clumps remain.
Preheat the skillet over medium heat and add some oil on the pan. Pour 1/4 cup of batter, per pancake, onto the skillet and quickly smooth out a circle with the back of a spoon. Cook until small bubbles appear on the surface and the bottoms of the pancakes are golden. Reduce heat if necessary. Transfer to baking sheet and place in the oven to keep warm.
Slice strawberries and bananas for topping.
