Vegan Carrot Cake Pancakes Recipe

Cory Warren
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Course Lunch/Dinner
Servings 4 servings


  • 1 15 oz box carrot cake or spice cake mix
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup Thai style coconut cream plus more for serving
  • 2 tbsp flax seeds
  • 1 cup shaved coconut
  • powdered sugar to taste


  • Grind the flax seeds into a fine powder by using a food processor or blender.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flax seeds and water and allow them to sit for a few minutes.
  • Add in the cake mix, carrots, and coconut cream. Make sure to reserve the rest of the coconut cream for your topping.
  • In a large non-stick pan or on a griddle, cook the pancakes over medium heat for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until they have set.
  • Plate the pancakes while they are hot and top with coconut cream, shredded coconut, and powdered sugar.


I also recommend keeping the coconut cream in the refrigerator and returning it to the fridge while you make your pancakes. It softens quickly and melts when exposed to low heat.
