Today’s Recipe of the Day is:

Carrot Cake Pancakes!

I’m seriously obsessed with carrot cake and I LOVE pancakes. So you really can’t go wrong with Carrot Cake Pancakes! Who’s with me?

Make a batch and then separate into ziplock bags and store in the freezer. Defrost the night before or in the microwave for an easy and delicious breakfast that will only take 2 minutes to prep.

Carrot Cake Pancakes


  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp  cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup + 2 tbsps milk of choice
  • 1 tbsps apple cider vinegar or distilled white vinegar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 cup loosely packed grated carrots
  • ½ cup golden raisins
  • ¼ cup toasted coconut flakes

For toppings:

  • Sour cream or coconut whip
  • Chopped walnuts
  • Toasted coconut flakes
  • Maple syrup


  • In a large bowl combine dry ingredients: white whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.
  • Stir together milk and vinegar. Set aside for 2 minutes. It will curdle a bit.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, vanilla, egg, oil, and maple syrup.
  • Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir just until combined. It’s okay if it has some lumps, you don’t want to overmix it or you will end up with a tough chewy pancake.
  • Fold in grated carrots, raisins, and coconut flakes just until dispersed in the batter.
  • Heat griddle or pan to medium heat and coat lightly with oil. Pour ¼ cup batter at a time and allow to cook for 1 min  or so – until the sides start firm up and the middle gets bubbly.
  • Flip pancake and cook additional 30 seconds. Repeat until batter makes 6 to 8 pancakes.
  • Top with sour cream or coconut whip cream, walnuts, coconut flakes, and maple syrup and enjoy!
