•1/2 tsp onion powder
•1/2 tsp pink salt
•1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
•1/4 Cup coconut oil
•Toppings as desired

Combine eggs, flour, baking powder and seasonings in separate bowl then add to potatoes and mix together with fork until well incorporated. Preheat pan with coconut oil over medium heat. Dollop potatoes (about fist sized) onto hot pan and press down with fork, cook for about 3-5min per side or until nicely browned.
