Handle Bar Recipes: Vegan Coconut Pancake Stack
It is without a doubt that the Handle Bar’s coconut pancake stack are the unrivalled champions of breakfast. We are forever being asked to share our secret recipe and because we love you, we thought we’d stick in on the Handle Blog so you can enjoy some HB breakfast goodness from the comfort of your own home.
Handle Bar owner, Celine, shares the recipe as well as the inspiration and back story:
Three and a half years ago, I decided to try being vegan. The experiment lasted for six months but was not completely in vain as it lead me to my ultimate favourite blogger, The Minimalist Baker, who’s vegan pancake recipe inspired our own.
When the Handle Bar was launched, I knew that it was important to offer vegan and vegetarian options and I was very aware that I had some studying to do because in France, where I was born and raised, the word vegan isn’t even a thing.
Like all carnivores, I didn’t think being vegan could be easy, fun, tasty and healthy. The Minimalist Baker, along with my very good friend Simone at Prana Yoga, who came to cook with us for a year to show us all we needed to know about veganism, taught me that it could be all of that and more,
