Carrot Cake Pancakes

  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1 1/2 cups oat flour
  • 1 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp applesauce
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup shredded carrot
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  1. In a large bowl combine the almond flour, oat flour, coconut sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt.
  2. Next add in the almond milk, egg, shredded carrot, applesauce, pure maple syrup, and vanilla extract.  Combine until a batter forms.
  3. Grease a pan or griddle and heat on low (or use an electric grill at 350 degrees).  Add about 1/4 cup of the batter to the pan for each pancake.  Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side.  I recommend testing the heat & time for one pancake first!
  4. While the pancakes are cooking begin working the cream cheese frosting.  Simply combine the softened cream cheese, pure maple syrup, and vanilla extract until smooth.
  5. Serve the pancakes with a spread of cream cheese frosting, an extra sprinkle of cinnamon and shredded carrot, and a pour of maple syrup if you’d like.
  6. Enjoy!
