Carrot Cake Pancakes

These pancakes are awesome. The original recipe can be found in Cooking Light magazine’s January 2010 issue or at http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/carrot-cake-pancakes-10000001949746/. I cleaned it up at bit.

 

Carrot Cake Pancakes

 1 1/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
Dash of ground cloves
Dash of ground ginger
1/4 cup honey
3/4 cup low-fat buttermilk
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups finely grated carrot (about 1 pound)
Cooking spray
3 tablespoons olive oil buttery spread
2 tablespoons honey

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine flour and next 7 ingredients (through ginger) in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Combine 1/4 cup honey and next 4 ingredients (through eggs); add honey mixture to flour mixture, stirring just until moist. Fold in 2 cups carrot.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Spoon 4 (1/4 cup) batter mounds onto pan, spreading with a spatula. Cook for 2 minutes or until tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked. Carefully turn pancakes over; cook 1 minute or until bottoms are lightly browned. Repeat procedure twice with remaining batter. Combine olive oil buttery spread and honey in a small bowl; serve with pancakes.
