Vegan Lemon Pancakes

Pancakes are the perfect weekend morning treat!  These lemon pancakes are really easy to make, and they contain no animal products, but you would never know by tasting them.  They are made with whole wheat flour, so a bit healthier than traditional pancakes, and they are so good topped off with fresh berries and coconut whipped cream!
