Another recipe from PaleOMG

Paleo Carrot Cake Pancakes

Makes about 8-10 small pancakes

1 cup carrots, shredded
3 eggs
1/2 cup almond meal
1/2 cup canned coconut milk
1/4 cup walnuts, chopped
2 tablespoon coconut oil
2 tablespoon coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp nutmeg
(feel free to add more spice if you like, I added 1 tsp of pumpkin spice)
1/4 cup raisins (optional)

Mix all dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Mix thoroughly.
Heat a large skillet up under medium-high heat and use coconut oil to grease the surface.
Pour batter into small pancakes onto hot griddle. Cook on both sides for 3 or so minutes.
Be patient with these pancakes, they really do take about 3 mins to cook on each side.

I layered mine with light cream cheese (not paleo) and topped with pure maple syrup, tasted just like cream cheese frosting!

      It is high I know! Paleo recipes are usually a bit higher. Try substituting coconut milk with almond milk, egg whites for the whole eggs, regular flour for the almond meal, or make the pancakes smaller than I did πŸ™‚
