Carrot Cake Protein Pancakes

Pancake Ingredients:

  • 1 scoop (34g) Cellucor cinnamon swirl whey protein (use my code “eatandrepeat” for 25% off!)
  • 1 ts baking powder
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1/2 serving shredded carrots (43g/ 1.5 oz) chopped up into small pieces
  • 1/2 serving (20g) Duncan Hines Spice cake mix
  • 1/2 serving (26g) Kodiak Cakes gluten free pancake mix (any pancake mix will work, this is just what I have right now)
  • 1/2 tb cinnamon
  • water until desired consistency

Frosting Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 6g sugar-free fat-free cheesecake pudding mix
  • cinnamon

Methods:

  • Mix together all of the pancake ingredients (minus 1 tb of the carrots. this will be used for garnish).Make sure not to add too much liquid, I noticed that these came out less fluffy than usual so be careful!  Prepare pancakes on griddle over medium heat.
  • Mix together the frosting ingredients and the remaining carrot pieces.
  • Layer the pancakes with the frosting and enjoy! 🙂 I also topped mine with sugar free pancake syrup and some Maple Donut flavored peanut butter from The Lion’s Choice (“eatandrepeat” for 10% off).
