When I think about Easter, I think about bunny rabbits. And when I think about bunny rabbits, I think about carrots! So in honor of this holiday we’re going to have some fun and make carrot pancakes for Easter brunch. We did a test run for this recipe 2 weeks ago and I couldn’t believe how yummy it turned out. Pancakes are certainly delicious on their own, but when you add finely shredded carrots, walnuts and a touch of cinnamon to the mix, it gives them a wonderful added texture and flavor. And as good as these pancakes are dipped in a bit of maple syrup or honey, they’re just as delicious on their own.

Whether you’re making brunch this Easter for a big group or just staying home with your family, these carrot pancakes are a healthy spring treat that your little bunnies are sure to love.

  1. Just made these. So good. Used maple sugar and coconut oil and added 1/4 cup of shredded parsnips because I had some. I then made some cream cheese, cinnamon, maple syrup spread to make sandwiches. My 2 toddler boys love pancake sandwiches. I have a silver dollar pancake pan and go through a lot of pancake batter. I love all your weelicious recipes. Thanks so much

  2. My 15 month old son has just recently started turning his nose up at his old favorite vegetables. I have been trying to figure out ways to sneak more veggies into his diet. These pancakes were great and did the trick! I made them with 1C carrot puree and half cup shredded carrots. I served them with a little bit of honey, and he ate them up.. The batch made lots, I’m happy to have so much left over. Thank you!
