Carrot Cake Pancakes

Enjoy pancakes at any time of day, especially when they are packed with nutrient-rich foods like carrots, walnuts, and canola oil. These hearty flapjacks are flavored with the same spices as carrot cake, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves but have a fraction of the fat and calories as traditional cake. Kids love their sweet flavor as well as the novelty of eating a cake-flavored food for a meal.

Parents, use a box grater to finely grate the carrots or break out the food processor for a speedier approach. The batter is thick so you may need to help spread the pancakes into rounds.
