Ingredients

    * 5.6 ounces all-purpose flour (about 1 1/4 cups)
    * 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
    * 2 teaspoons baking powder
    * 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    * 1/4 teaspoon salt
    * 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
    * Dash of ground cloves
    * Dash of ground ginger
    * 1/4 cup brown sugar
    * 3/4 cup low-fat buttermilk
    * 1 tablespoon canola oil
    * 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    * 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
    * 2 cups finely grated carrot (about 1 pound)
    * Cooking spray
    * 3 tablespoons butter, softened
    * 2 tablespoons honey


    All the above ingredients are in the nutrition tracker except cooking spray. The only change I made is to list the butter as light margarine because that is what I use.

Directions

Combine flour and next 7 ingredients (through ginger) in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Combine 1/4 cup brown sugar and next 4 ingredients (through eggs); add sugar mixture to flour mixture, stirring just until moist. Fold in 2 cups carrot.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Spoon 4 (1/4 cup) batter mounds onto pan, spreading with a spatula. Cook for 2 minutes or until tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked. Carefully turn pancakes over; cook 1 minute or until bottoms are lightly browned. Repeat procedure twice with remaining batter. Combine butter and honey in a small bowl; serve with pancakes.

  • This is one our favorite pancake recipes...So Delish!!!
    Make sure you finely grate the carrot as stated so that it cooks thru .... else it may be a little crunchy.

    **Note: I didn't see the brown sugar listed in the nutritional breakdown, so you may want to use the Cooking Light 315 cal/serv. - 4/23/10

    I wondered why the calorie count was off. I will fix it. Thanks.
