Easter Recipe – Carrot Vegan Gluten Free Pancakes

Happy Easter!

I decided to make a fun and healthy recipe its delicious fluffy are great for the holidays! As always I don’t like to measure anything and just eyeball it and taste test as I go along.

Ingredients: (For the pancakes)

  • Gluten free flour (whole grain sorghum, brown rice flour, tapioca Flour)
  • Baking powder
  • Flax egg
  • Organic vanilla extract
  • Raw carrots
  • Cinnamon, nutmeg, sea salt
  • Coconut Oil (melted)
  • Unsweetened Nut Milk
  • Coconut Sugar / Maple Syrup

Method:

  • In a food processor blend the carrots until very fine, add in the remaining ingredients to your taste slowly and blend until the batter is smooth

Ingredients: (For the Icing)

  1. Soaked cashew nuts
  2. Sweet / vanilla nut milk & pinch of salt
  3. If unsweetened nut milk is used then add in some coconut sugar or maple syrup & vanilla
  4. Corn Starch
  5. Organic orange food coloring (can use paprika/ carrot juice)
  6. Organic green food coloring  (can use chlorophyll powder / matcha powder)

Method:

  • Blend the first four ingredients into a thick paste
  • In three small bowls add in the white icing
  • Then add in the orange food coloring and green food coloring

Cooking: 

  • In a hot pan add in some coconut oil, you can use a round mold to help you shape your pancakes
  • Cook and flip until each pancake is fully cooked
  • Place onto a paper towel to absorb extra oils and let them cool completely before icing 

Icing:

  • Pour the white icing all over the pancakes and smooth out with the back of a spoon
  • You can use a store-bought / homemade piping bag / toothpick for the carrot design
  • Transfer the orange icing into a piping bag and design your best carrot (with short folding pumps)
  • With a toothpick and the green icing create the head of the carrot (by creating straight strokes)

It’s really delicious and I hope you try it yourself! Also if you have kids then you can have them design the icing too.

That’s all friends
