Carrot Pancakes

Carrot Pancakes

Spread the love

These carrot pancakes are DELICIOUS! They’re filled with a generous amount of carrots and are made with gluten-free flour. They are light and fluffy like a regular pancake and oh so delicious. I love these because I can eat a few at a time and not feel sluggish or guilty afterward. I get to satisfy my carb craving (while getting a dose of vegetables) without feeling bad about it because I know I am also fueling my body with a plentiful amount of carrots!

A friend of mine shared this recipe with me from, and from the first time I made them I was sold. I made a couple of recipe changes to make them slightly healthier. I chose to use organic maple syrup instead of sugar, and gluten-free flour instead of regular flour. I also added some additional seasoning which I think really sets it apart from some of the other recipes I’ve seen.

Close up of pancakes

These carrot pancakes feel like autumn and in my opinion, I love fall flavors year-round. I like to top mine with greek yogurt, raspberries, coconut flakes, and organic maple syrup.
