Serves: 4

Ingredients:
• 1 1/4 all-purpose flour
• 1 tsp canola oil
• 2 tsp baking powder
• 1 tsp ground cinnamon
• 1/4 tsp salt
• 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
• Dash of ground cloves
• Dash of ground ginger

Preparation: Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt nutmeg, cloves, ginger and walnuts in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Lightly beat eggs and combine with brown sugar, buttermilk, oil, and vanilla. Add sugar mixture to flour mixture, stirring just until moist. Fold in 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.
