If you like a carrot cake, you will enjoy these delicious gluten-free carrot pancakes. After all, who doesn’t like pancakes, especially when they taste like a carrot cake? Yes, a carrot cake but healthier. In this recipe, I used carrots, flaxseed, walnuts, and to sweeten them up a splash of pure maple syrup. For the carrot cake flavour, I used cinnamon and nutmeg. What I love most about this gluten-free carrot pancake recipe is, that you can get your kids to eat carrots without them knowing about it. Another easy way to get your kids eating more vegetables. 

Ingredients

  • 2 medium carrots (about 1 cup when finely grated)
  • 1 1/4 cup milk or non-dairy milk of choice
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 Tbsp. Ground flaxseed
  • 1 tsp. Pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup gluten-free flour blend (I use cup4cup or better batter)
  • 2 tsp. GF baking powder (preferably aluminum-free)
  • 1 tsp. GF ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. GF ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp. Himalayan salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • Butter or coconut oil for cooking
  • Optional toppings; maple syrup, fruit, nuts, powdered coconut sugar, yogurt, jam
  • Instructions

  • Cut carrots into large pieces and place in the bowl of a food processor. Grate finely. If you don't have a food processor, using a grater grate the carrots finely, then continue with the next step
  • Add milk, maple syrup, egg, flaxseed and vanilla. Mix to combine. Set aside for 10 minutes
  • In a large bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Add carrot mixture and mix to combine. Do not over mix. Stir in walnuts
  • Heat about 2 teaspoons of butter/coconut oil in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add 1/4 cup of batter to the pan for each pancake. Cook about 3 minutes on the first side, you should see bubbles forming on the top. Flip and cook about 2 minutes on the other side. Continue cooking until pancakes are done using oil as needed. If you have a large skillet, you can cook 2 - 4 pancakes at a time
