Apple carrot cake pancakes with maple cream cheese topping

These apple carrot cake pancakes are topped with a maple cream cheese sauce. They’re hearty, warming and perfect for fall.

Here are the foods in every category I can think of that wouldn’t phase me in the least if I never ate them again.

Meat: chicken

Vegetable: peas

Sweets: candy (like the sugary, corn syrupy kind)

Grain: couscous

Nut: peanuts (as a nut, not as butter and I know it’s a technically a legume but let’s just pretend it’s not)

Legume: black beans

Fruit: apples
