Carrot Cake Protein Pancakes

I had no intentions on making these this morning, but I had some shredded carrots to use up . . . and this delicious stack of amazing-ness was born! I'm cutting right to the recipe because I have tons of work to do before work tonight . . .Why the banana slices? Just because :)

Carrot Cake Protein Pancakes


3/4 scoop vanilla whey protein
1/2 tablespoon coconut flour
1 teaspoon sugar-free vanilla pudding mix
1 packet Truvia
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon pecans (or walnuts, but I only had pecans)
3 tablespoons shredded carrots
2 tablespoons Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon unsweetened almond milk
2 tablespoons liquid egg whites
Lots of cinnamon! (or to taste)


1. Blend all ingredients together (might be better to mix wet and dry ingredients separately, then gradually add the wet to the dry, but I was really hungry this morning ;) ). I used my Ninja.
2. Cook your pancakes! Make sure your skillet is HOT!
