Carrot Cake Pancakes

These were yummy! A little more moist then pancakes normally are but good! My picky 3 year old had no idea it had carrots in it!

Make your favorite pancake recipe and then add

1/2 cup shredded carrots (you can add more if you want, I just kinda guessed. Also, I shredded really fine so my daughter wouldnt see them)
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground clove

Combine and cook like normal.

For the "syrup"
1/2 block Cream cheese (4oz)
1 teaspoon milk (I used almond milk)
powdered sugar

Combine until you have the consistency you want. I didnt put a measurement for the sugar because it really depends on how you want your consistency. Some like it runny like syrup and some like it thicker like a sauce.

Healthy Oatmeal Cookies

This is from and then I tweaked the recipe. These sneak some good stuff in to my girls diet and they dont know it. :-)

1/2 Cup butter
1/2 Cup Coconut oil
1/2 Cup sugar
1/2 Cup Brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
3 cups oats
3 teaspoons Flax seeds (I put them in the blender and make it really fine)
1/2 cup craisins
1/2 Cup White chocolate chips

In a bowl combine butter, coconut oil, sugars, eggs and vanilla. Beat until combined. Add the rest of the ingredients. Place by spoonfuls onto cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 10 minutes.
