Vegan Carrot Cake Pancakes

Pancakes are such a Saturday thing, right? Weekdays I’m all about green smoothies or oatmeal and Sundays I love to go out for brunch…which leaves Saturday morning as prime pancake time!

Last Friday afternoon the weekend felt so close that I could almost taste the pancakes! I posted on Instagram asking for suggestions for what kind of pancakes I should whip up over the weekend and I was overwhelmed by so many great ideas. One idea in particular sounded especially delicious to me…carrot cake inspired pancakes!

I’m so excited to share the recipe for Vegan Carrot Cake Pancakes that I came up with! The ingredient list is very short and they are so easy to make- yet still pretty impressive for guests! I topped mine with maple syrup, coconut whip, shredded coconut and extra carrot shreds…perfection.
