Tropical Carrot Cake Pancakes

As promised, here’s another Easter recipe! Maybe you’re in need of brunch ideas for this weekend… These Tropical Carrot Cake Pancakes are quick to make and taste delicious! (Don’t let the ingredient list scare you. There may appear to be many ingredients but they’re all common stables in your pantry). Keep an eye out for those bunnies… I wouldn’t be surprised if they even tried to sneak a bite! 😉

For some, Good Friday might be seen as a day off work.. A day when you get to sleep in, maybe catch up on laundry or other chores.. But really, it’s so much more than just a day off of work or a long weekend. It’s a day we should all acknowledge and be thankful for. For this day we are saved! This world is full of so much evil, hurt, and greed. Good Friday represents a day where we can be washed clean, ask for forgiveness, and surrender. Without this day we would be hopeless, in major chaos, and very lost. We are called to be agents of reconciliation which involves seeking to reverse the effects of what sin has sought to destroy- spiritually, physically, and relationally. For me, this weekend is a celebration. It’s the best celebration I could ask for! What is it to you?

    • Hi Kristina!
      I’m sure coconut flour would work however you must double the liquid! I find coconut flour quite dense so I’m not sure if you would end up with little hockey pucks 😉 I’m still playing around with coconut flour and getting the right consistency. Chickpea flour would also be a good alternative! I typically use rice or chickpea 🙂
