Carrot Cake Pancakes {Gluten Free + Dairy Free}

These gluten free and dairy free carrot cake pancakes are to die for. They are so so perfect for a fun Spring time weekend breakfast or hey, no one is judging if you make a massive batch and freeze some! 😉

This recipe makes 12 pancakes because we’re a family of four + I hate having to worry about doubling other recipes. Most of us got 3 pancakes and one person got 4 (cough, cough, hubby!). At the end, I put the cream cheese drizzle and some maple syrup and it made it perfect! I also put some organic walnuts to add a little crunch!

SO GOOD! The cream cheese drizzle is TOTALLY optional though + these pancakes are perfect with just maple syrup, so don’t fret if you aren’t feeling up to making the cream cheese drizzle (I’m a busy mama, so I understand!)

If you love these, make our lemon blueberry ricotta pancakes! We obviously love making some delicious pancakes that are loaded with flavor and hopefully become a family favorite!
