Carrot cake pancakes are perfect for Spring, and the only thing that is missing is the frosting.  These pancakes are a must, especially if you like carrot cake. The flavor is so perfect and the pancakes are nice and fluffy. 

One of these pancakes will truly fill your family for a couple of hours. We love to top ours off with some homemade maple syrup or even some almond butter.

Carrot Cake Pancakes

 

Why not start your Easter morning off with a healthier breakfast!?!  Carrot, oats, cinnamon, ginger, pecans and if your little ones like raisins, be my guest and add some of those too. Don’t tell my husband because I didn’t add any in his. Not my favorite.;) 

 

 

Tips and Tricks For Carrot Cake Pancakes:

 

  • If you don’t care for pecans, leave them out, the pancakes will still taste great.
  • You can grate any size of carrots that you have. (I just happened to have 3 carrots left in my garden from last year and they were perfect. They were in a protected area and I just left them in the garden all winter).
  • To really get fancy, instead of adding syrup, you could add nut butter, peanut butter or even some whipped topping.
