German chocolate was one of our grandpa’s favorites. We remember as kids him buying german chocolate cakes all the time. He would always offer us some, but we would say no. Because at the time we did not like coconut!!!! Anything coconut made us run away haha, we know crazy.

Oh boy how things  have changed as all we want is something with coconut.

We wish we could enjoy some german chocolate pancakes with our grandpa today, but we know he would approve of this recipe.


He would approve anytime chocolate was involved. He loved chocolate just as much as we do.

He would call it his medicine. #wiseman

Our grandpa also loved pumpkin. So we fused those two flavors together.

OMG these need to be on the agenda for this weekend!! I love it when you make recipes “flourless” since I don’t digest any sort of flour very well. I am much more likely to make a recipe when it’s already flourless. Thank you girls!!! 🙂
