Carrot Cake Pancakes!

I wanted carrot cake today and I wanted it bad! But I just couldn’t bring myself to make a whole cake for one stupid craving. I hate making something then having it in the house for me to look and stare at, with it giving me the evil eye and telling my telepathically to ‘EAT ME’.

So that got me thinking. I am going through a massive pancake craze right now and I remembered seeing somewhere about carrot cake pancakes and I thought that this was the most genius idea I had ever heard!

Would you believe though I got half way through making the batter and realized I had no eggs..grrrr… so I had to make a  quick dash to the shops for eggs.

Back at it and my batter tasted brilliant. Cooked these babies up and served them with some chobani Greek yoghurt, chopped walnuts and more grated carrot. TO DIE FOR!


1/4 cup plain or vanilla protein powder

• 1/2 cup Greek yoghurt

• 1/2 teasp cinnamon •

pinch nutmeg and ginger

• 1/2 teasp baking powder

• 2 egg whites

• 1 cup oats

• 1/2 cup water

• 1/4 cup stevia

• 1 cup grated carrot plus extra for topping

• walnuts to serve


Simply add it all to a food processor and blend until smooth. Place about two tablespoon worth for one pancake into a hot skillet!
