Did you know I'm not the only aspiring-chef in the family?

 

My husband Erik ALSO loves to cook.

 

He typically makes breakfast each day and then will do a lot of weekend dinners too. I know, I'm lucky ūüôā Definitely NOT complaining!

 

Why Carrot Cake Pancakes

These Paleo Carrot Cake Pancakes were a creation of his that he conjured up after getting incredibly bored of the regular pancakes we'd been eating. He and the kids had had a gluten-free carrot cake pancake mix while on our backpacking trip this summer (I was on AIP so I did not partake), but they loved it so much they wanted to recreate it.

 

I have to say he did a darn good job, and these are amazing. Carrot Cake is my favorite dessert as my late mother always served it to me for my birthdays, so I have fond memories. Making it into a pancake is just sheer genius.

 

These pancakes are perfect for these cool fall mornings we've been having, but I wouldn't say they have to be a fall-only kind of thing.

Freezing for Later (Like Crazy Busy Weekday Mornings)

These freeze well, so if you're like us and rely on pancakes and waffles as an easy way to make it through CRAZY fast mornings before school, follow these steps to make mornings so much more fun:

 

  1. Make up a double or triple batch of the recipe below
  2. Lay the pancakes flat on a baking sheet.
  3. Place the baking sheet in the freezer until the pancakes are frozen (a few hours).
  4. Remove from the freezer and put the pancakes into a gallon-sized Ziploc bag (or several) and then put back in the freezer.

 

When it comes time to eat them you can thaw overnight and then put in the toaster oven or put them in the microwave for 10-20 seconds.
