Easter breakfast: Carrot Cake Pancakes

If you are looking for a slightly healthier option to eating chocolate on Easter morning, might I suggest Carrot Cake Pancakes.  At this time of year, greens are starting to come in, but not much else veggie wise.  So use up those root veggies.

Carrot Cake Pancakes
3/4 cup white flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 Tbs. brown sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 eggs
1 3/4 c. buttermilk
6 Tbs. butter, melted
1 cup shredded carrots
1/3 cup chopped walnuts
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. cinnamon

Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl.  Separate the eggs.  Mix the buttermilk with the yolks and add to the dry ingredients.  Stir until just mixed.  Add the melted butter to the batter, stir well.  Add the vanilla and cinnamon.  Beat the whites until they form soft peaks, fold into batter.  Fold in the carrots and walnuts.  Cook in an ungreased skillet.  Enjoy!
