If you are a carrot cake fan then these pancakes are for you. A light, fluffy pancake full of shredded carrots topped with a cream cheese frosting.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE PANCAKES:
  • ½ cups Greek Yogurt
  • 1 Tablespoon Milk, Non-fat
  • 2 whole Egg Whites
  • ½ teaspoons Vanilla Extract

  • 1 Tablespoon Cornstarch
  • 1 Tablespoon Milk

Preparation

For the pancakes:
Mix Greek yogurt, milk, egg whites and vanilla extract in a small bowl.

In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder, sugar, spices and salt. Mix and add carrots.

My boyfriend loves carrot cake and pancakes, but we’re trying to eat healthy, so I thought I’d give these a whirl. He gobbled them up and said they were great! I was a little concerned about the carrots not cooking very much. I think next time, I might try to grate them more finely. Overall, very tasty, though. They were a cinch to make and fluffed up very nicely (thick batter = thick pancakes). Thanks for sharing!
