Heat up some coconut oil in a flat frying pan over medium-low heat. Add pancake mixture in 2 tbsp batches, cook for 1-2minutes on each side, turning when little bubbles start appearing in the batter. Flip, and cook until lightly browned. Whip lemon butter ingredients, add a dollop to each pancake and top with berries to serve.
