It’s finally Spring!! This winter seemed to last forever, but now it is time to enjoy longer days of sunshine and warm weather! Whenever spring rolls around I like to make fun, vibrant, springtime dishes, like these Carrot Cake Pancakes!

These carrot cake pancakes are the perfect treat to add to your morning meal! They are gluten-free and can easily be made vegan by using flax egg instead of egg. I like to make a large batch and store them in the fridge for an easy go-to breakfast. I simply warm up the pancakes, top them with coconut yogurt and maple syrup, and enjoy a lovely, effortless breakfast!

What You Need To Make These Healthy, Gluten-Free Carrot Cake Pancakes 

  • Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour: I use Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free 1:1 Baking Flour
  • Shredded Carrots: I like to buy pre-shredded carrots to save myself time 
  • Sugar & Spices: Cinnamon, Ginger, Nutmeg, Salt, Brown Sugar, Vanilla Extract
  • Non-Dairy Milk: I use Almond Milk, but you can use any dairy or non-dairy milk you like. 
  • Coconut Oil: Use coconut oil or you can use melted butter
  • Eggs: You can use regular eggs or sub with flax egg to make these pancakes vegan.
Ingredients needed to make carrot cake pancakes: almond milk, baking powder, vanilla extract, coconut oil, cinnamon, ground ginger, nutmeg, salt, brown sugar, egg, carrots, gluten-free all purpose flour

How to Make Carrot Cake Pancakes (Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free)

  1. Combine the dry Ingredients 
  2. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until fully incorporated
  3. Pour about ¼ cup of the mixture into a non-stick pan over medium-low heat and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side.
  4. Serve with your favorite toppings: almond butter, yogurt, cream cheese, fresh fruit, and nuts!

Substitute Options So That You Can Customize These Carrot Cake Pancakes To Your Liking:

Want Vegan Carrot Cake Pancakes? Simply use flax egg instead of a regular egg. (Flax egg = 1 tbsp ground flax + 2.5 tbsp Water)

Want to use regular flour? You sure can! Simply substitute the all-purpose gluten-free flour with regular all-purpose flour, like this one

Want To Make These Pancakes Refined Sugar Free? Skip the brown sugar and use coconut sugar for a delicious, warm flavor.

Want Cream Cheese Icing? Simply smear cream cheese on your pancakes! Or, you can make a glaze yourself. Here’s a great recipe to try!

How To Store Any Leftover Carrot Cake Pancakes

You can store your carrot cake pancakes in an airtight container and keep them in the fridge for up to 3 days. To reheat the pancakes, simply place them on a microwave-safe plate and 30-60 seconds, or until warm.

My family loves a good carrot cake, so when I plated these for breakfast, they didn’t know how to act! They didn’t realize the recipe was vegan. The pancakes were soft, fluffy & full of flavor. The gluten free option is certainly a plus. We will be trying your regular flour version this weekend.
Thank you!

I made these for my family is a nice sunday surprise, and they loved it (a bunch of carrot cake lovers over here!)

The best part was knowing that they were gluten-free and not having to worry about allergies. They also tasted JUST like carrot cake!
