Carrot Cake Pancake


4 egg whites
1/2 cup oatmeal
2 TB shredded carrot
2 tsp raisins
1 tsp walnuts
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Pinch nutmeg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 packet sweetener, i.e. Stevia

1 oz. fat free cream cheese
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I like the consistency of MHP Probolic SR)
2 TB water
1 tsp vanilla extract

How to Prepare (wait until you see how incredibly simple this is!!)

  1. Put ALL (yes, ALL) pancake ingredients into a bowl and mix together with a spatula until well blended. Set aside.
  2. Coat small skillet lightly with non-stick cooking spray and place on medium-high heat. Allow to heat up for approximately 30 seconds.
  3. Pour batter slowly onto heated skillet and let cook for approximately 5 minutes or until bubbles form on top of pancake and underside is nice and brown. Once this occurs, flip pancake over and cook for an additional 2 minutes or until pancakes are firm and underside is also browned.
  4. While pancake is cooking, put all Frosting ingredients into a small bowl and whip together with a spoon until a smooth and creamy consistency is reached. (You might need to add slightly more water depending upon the protein used).
  5. Remove pancake from skillet and put onto a plate. Generously spread the cream cheese frosting on top.
  6. Grab a fork and dig in to your carrot cake! Are you in Heaven? Enjoy!

Note: If the pancake is too big for you, save half for later! It’s soooo good cold too!
