Carrot Cake Pancakes

Vegan, Dairy-free, Wheat-free, Gluten-free, Egg-free, Yeast-free
I love pancakes!!!
My personal favorite has always been lemon and sugar (the usual) but i wanted to make Carrot cake inspired pancakes for a unique change.
Carrot cake is a delicious & mild flavour combination which works amazing in why not in pancakes?!!!

This recipe is 100% Vegan & Wheat/Gluten-free using real grated carrot for a yummy texture along with nutmeg & cinnamon for that classic carrot cake flavour!

Topped off with coconut yogurt, desiccated coconut & oats, it makes the perfect go-to breakfast/healthy snack, as it is super quick & easy too!

Preparation- 5 minutes
Cooking-5 10 minutes
Makes- Approximately 10 Pancakes

-1 Cup of Plain Flour ( I used gluten-free)
-1 cup of Grated carrots
-1 Tablespoon of caster Sugar (you can use Coconut Sugar)
-1/2 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon of Nutmeg
-2 Tablespoons of Baking powder
-1 Cup of Dairy-free milk (I used Unsweetened almond)
-Pinch of Salt
-2 Tablespoons of olive oil

Topping's (optional)
-Unsweetened desiccated coconut
-Coconut yogurt
-Gluten-free oats
-Ground nutmeg

Step 1- Pre-heat your pan with a little oil
This prevents the batter from sticking to the pan.

Step 2- In a mixing bowl, mix together the flour, grated carrot, nutmeg, cinnamon, salt, baking Powder and caster Sugar.
Step 3- In a separate bowl, combine the oil & milk together then pour into the dry mixture.
Mix until smooth.
Step 4-  With a large spoon or ladle, carefully pour a small amount of the mixture into the centre of the hot pan.
Leave it for a minute or so then flip. Only flip when the edges of the pancake look firm enough to flip.
Step 5- Repeat this process until you have used up all of your batter and have a tower of delightful pancakes!

Top off with some dairy-free coconut yogurt, grated carrot, walnuts(for added protein) and a pinch of ground nutmeg!
