greek yogurt 52 ways: #35 carrot cake pancakes
I'm excited to share this recipe with you! Some time ago I made two ingredient pancakes using 1 egg and 1/2 a mashed banana, which makes 3 pancakes. (The recipe is easily doubled, tripled, quadrupled- you get the idea- for more). I got the idea to make carrot cake pancakes by adding a couple more ingredients to the two ingredient pancakes.
To make 3 carrot cake pancakes, mash 1/2 a banana and mix in 1 egg until well combined. Add 1 tbsp of brown sugar, 1/2 tsp of ground nutmeg, and 1/2 tsp (or more) of ground cinnamon. Finally, fold in 1/4 c of grated carrot. Pour 1/8 c of batter per pancake in a greased pan over medium-low heat. Flip the pancakes after they brown.
Top your pancakes with "frosting" made from 1/2 c of vanilla, Greek yogurt and 1 tbsp of powdered sugar.
If you try a recipe I share, be sure to let me know! Use the hashtag: #greekyogurt52ways.
