Pancakes w/ Raspberry drizzle and Coconut whipped cream

Today when I got up in the morning, I was looking through some food blogs.  Since I hadn't eaten anything  I started to get really hungry!  So I decided to make some pancakes!  I added some chocolate chips, but you don't have to if you don't want to.  OK here's the recipe to the pancakes!

2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup oats
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons cinnamon

Mix the baking powder, flour and salt together into a large mixing bowl.
Break the egg into the bowl.  Add the milk and stir until the batter is smooth.  Add the oil and mix.  Put 1 tablespoon of olive oil into a large skillet over medium heat.  Tilt the skillet to cover the bottom with the oil.  Pour in the batter a little at a time to make circles about 2 1/2 inched across.  Make sure you leave room between the pancakes-be careful because the batter spreads out!  When the pancakes are full of bubbles but before the bubbles burst, turn them with a pancake turner.  Cook until the bottoms are browned.   Use the pancake turner to remove them from the skillet and stack them up on a plate.  Then put in another tablespoon of oil in the skillet and start a new batch.  (If you want chocolate chips in the batter, put a handful of chocolate chips into the batter once you put the pancake onto the skillet)

Raspberry drizzle:
1 cup frozen raspberries or regular raspberries
1/2 cup sugar

Directions:  Heat up frozen raspberries in a microwavable bowl and wait till they are warm and aren't frozen.  Put the raspberries into a small saucepan and set the temperature to medium.  Once warmed up and mostly melted add the sugar and stir.

Coconut whipped cream:
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tablespoon coconut imitation
1/2 cup sugar

Whip the heavy cream with an electric mixer on high speed.  After fluffy and peaks are starting to form add the coconut imitation and the sugar.  

After everything is made stack the pancakes up, put a dollop of the coconut whipped cream on top of them and drizzle the raspberry sauce on top.  For extra decoration put a sprinkle of powdered sugar for a finishing touch.

Enjoy! :)
