Notes

top with additional golden raisins and 1/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts --- plus dark amber maple syrup!

Instructions

  1. Combine the carrots, raisins, cashewmilk, and honey in a high speed blender. Blend until mostly (or completely) smooth.
  2. Pour the puree into a large mixing bowl, then whisk in the eggs.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and spices. Stir until thoroughly mixed.
  4. Slowly stir in the flour mixture into the carrot puree in the large mixing bowl, about 1/3 at a time stirring well.
  5. In a large pan, over medium-low heat, melt the coconut oil. Then, pour the batter into small 3 to 4 inch circles. When pancakes start bubbling a bit and the bottom is slightly browned, flip them over. Continue cooking for a minute or two on the other side.
  6. Serve warm with additional golden raisins, walnuts and maple syrup.
