  • 2 tbs Walden Farms syrup or any syrup you prefer
  1. Heat a non-stick pan to med/high heat
  2. Combine egg whites and almond milk in a small bowl
  3. Add remaining ingredients and milk well
  4. Spray pan with cooking spray

    Mm, these do look like the perfect fall treat! I make zucchini bread pancakes all the time, so I don’t see why not carrot cake!
