Easter weekend is around the corner and I was thinking of what I could make to celebrate that’s both simple and sweet. Carrot pancakes just kept popping into my head. To be honest it’s been a while since I had carrot pancakes. I am a BIG fan of carrot cake but since I cut out all the highly processed sugars and animal products, I haven’t attempted a carrot cake recipe. However, I thought vegan carrot pancakes would be just as satisfying and much more simple to make.

This recipe was inspired by my love of carrot cake and these pancakes are just that, a simple carrot cake recipe turned pancake. Since I can’t really justify a slice of carrot cake for breakfast, I’ll instead put those flavors into a stack of vegan carrot cream pancakes. I almost feel bad calling this breakfast but luckily, the ingredients are quite nourishing and good enough for me to eat.

These carrot pancakes are light and fluffy. They require just 20 minutes to make and 10 ingredients. They’re vegan, gluten-free, free of refined sugars, and of course guilt-free (my favorite). They are also loaded with fresh shredded carrots, shredded coconut, walnuts, and pineapple chunks. The cream filling is both sweet and tangy, almost like cream cheese frosting. It’s so good you can eat these with or without maple syrup. They are perfect for special occasions or just another weekend brunch.

If you are a BIG juice lover, who isn’t? You could make some fresh carrot juice and use the pulp as a substitute for the shredded carrots. Just another added bonus to this amazing recipe!

Notes

Using the blender to mix the batter will make this recipe a lot easier. I’ve also used my Blentec & Nutribullet and they both work great.
The pineapple, coconut, and walnuts are optional in this recipe but really make the pancake amazingly delicious. So if you have these ingredients in your kitchen give it a try.
