Carrot Cake Pancakes

Carrot Cake Pancakes

So we’ve gotta stay healthy right? Though this recipe is definitely more on the indulgent side, leftover pulp from juiced carrots makes a perfect no-waste addition to pancake batter. If you don’t juice, simply pulse fresh carrot slices in a food processor until minced. The results are a tender, fluffy pancake with all the carrot-cakey flavors you loved as a child. Top with buttered pecans, raisins and classic cream cheese icing to really complete the dish.
