'Carrot Cake' Pancakes

I am trying to reduce refined sugar from the family's diet.  Some days are huge successes and some days are epic fails but I keep at it in the hope that one day we will habitually say no to refined sugar.  In keeping with this, we tried a 'carrot cake' pancake. 

100 g oats
3 eggs
1 medium carrot grated
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp baking powder
4 tbsp low fat natural yoghurt (you could use flavoured or low sugar if you prefer)

Blitz all the ingredients in a blender.  This makes four large pancakes or eight little pancakes.   Serve with your choice of topping,  Lil Man J happily ate 4 little ones with just a little blob of butter! 

Even if you did dish this up with maple syrup or honey, you have cut out refined flour and sugar in normal pancakes.
