Carrot Cake Pancakes
Ever since making my healthier spelt flour carrot cake, I’ve been obsessed with all things carrot. There’s something about the subtle sweetness with the warm spices that just gets me.
This stack of carrot cake pancakes hit the spot for all of my carrot cake cravings. The batter’s made from spelt flour, grated carrots, plant-based milk, and a few other basic ingredients that you likely have on hand.
To make this recipe, you can whisk together everything in one bowl, or toss it into your blender or food processor. It doesn’t get much easier!
The pancakes are made with super simple ingredients, and can easily be made gluten free if needed.
Here’s what you’ll need to make carrot cake pancakes
- Grated carrots– you can grate your carrots with a food processor blade attachment, or hand grate them directly into your mixing bowl
- Spelt flour– spelt flour is one of my favorite flours for a boost of whole-grains. If you needed a flour substitute, you can use all-purpose flour, or make these gluten-free by using oat flour
- Plant-based milk– with any recipe that calls for plant-based milk, I always opt for an unflavored, unsweetened variety. Almond or oat milk are my first choices, but any milk would work well here
- Spice blend– cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger
- Maple syrup
Top them off with your favorite toppings, like maple syrup, walnuts, coconut and yogurt!
These pancakes are sweet and fluffy, and truly so easy to whip up. You can even prep them ahead of time and store some in the freezer for a quick meal prep.
