Carrot Cake Pancake Recipe

 

My favourite thing to do on a Sunday morning is creating a masterpiece breakfast. Every other day of the week, I wouldn’t have the time to stand there and create the deliciousness that is this carrot cake pancake recipe, but here we are.

I love to bake and finding healthy versions of my favourite foods is always a winner. Not only is this the best carrot cake pancake recipe I’ve ever come across, but adding a sprinkle of protein powder also makes it a perfect protein pancake recipe!

Pancakes always feel like such an indulgent thing to have in the morning and they are so filling that they’ll keep you going well into the day. However, these guys are not as unhealthy as you may think. In fact, they are technically one of your 5 a day, you’re welcome!

With the inclusion of clean eating ingredients, such as coconut oil, almond milk and of course, fresh carrots, this breakfast is a great way to kick off a healthy day. You can even batch cook them and save a few for another day!

Not only is this carrot cake pancake recipe relatively clean eating, but they are also the perfect fuel if you’re about to head to the gym for an all-out gym sesh. I always like to have a big breakfast in the morning and then smaller meals throughout the day, just because breakfast is my favourite meal. It also gives me the energy and momentum I need to blast through what I need to do early on and give me the time to chill in the evening.

It’s always worth experimenting with ingredients when it comes to these kind of recipes, so if you feel like you want to go rogue and add a few bits or replace a few items with vegan/gluten free alternatives, go right ahead!

So, without further ado, here is a super tasty, pretty healthy carrot cake pancake recipe to set you off right.
