8 4-inch pancakes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats

  • ½ cup Greek yogurt

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 carrots, peeled and finely chopped

  • ¼ cup skim milk, or more as needed

  • ¼ cup vanilla protein powder (Optional)

  • 1 tablespoon white sugar

  • ½ teaspoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg

  • 1 pinch ground ginger

  • 1 carrot, peeled and grated

  • cooking spray

Directions

  1. Combine oats, yogurt, eggs, chopped carrots, milk, protein powder, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, and ginger in a blender. Blend until batter is smooth. Fold in grated carrots.

  2. Heat a griddle over medium-high heat; spray with cooking spray. Scoop batter onto the griddle using a 1/4 measuring cup, and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

Cook's Notes:

Increase sugar to 1/4 to 1/2 cup for sweeter (less healthy) pancakes. Use vanilla Greek yogurt if preferred.

Try sprinkling raisins on top while cooking the first side.
