Carrot Cake Pancakes {gluten free}

A combination of sweet and savory, these pancakes are delish. But I do hope you like carrots, otherwise steer clear. I kinda felt like a rabbit after devouring these. The greek yogurt topping is almost like cream cheese frosting… almost.

Hope you enjoy!

Carrot Cake Pancakes

Ingredients (Makes one serving – four pancakes)
  • 2 tbsp. oat flour (make by pulsing about a 1/4 cup regular rolled oats in a food processor – be sure to use certified gluten free oats if necessary)
  • 1 tbsp. coconut flour
  • 1 tbsp. unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup liquid egg whites
  • 3/4 cup carrots, shredded (about 3 medium carrots peeled & pulsed in a food processor)
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt (optional)
  • Toppings galore! (cinnamon, more carrots, raisins, walnuts, shredded coconut…)
  • cooking spray
Directions
  1. In a medium bowl, combine oat flour, coconut flour, shredded coconut, baking powder and cinnamon.
  2. Add the egg whites and carrots to the flour mixture and mix well.
  3. Heat a sprayed (or non-stick) skillet over medium-high heat.
  4. Use a spoon to drop the batter into the skillet (about 1/4 cup each) forming four pancakes. Flatten the pancakes so they cook through.
  5. When you start to see the bottom turning golden brown (about 4 minutes) flip pancakes.
  6. Continue cooking until the underside is golden brown (about 3 minutes).
  7. Transfer to a plate and top with greek yogurt and toppings of your choice.
  8. Dig in and enjoy!
