Preheat your skillet or griddle on low to medium-low heat.
In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir to mix well. Toss in the carrots and pecans and stir until they are coated in the flour mixture.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, sugar, buttermilk, and vanilla. Mix well to combine.
Once your pan is pre-heated, mix together the wet ingredients into the dry. Mix until just combined. There may be some lumps in the batter – this is okay.
Pour the batter into 1/3 cup rounds on your skillet or griddle and cook until bubbles form and begin to pop – roughly 4 – 5 minutes. Flip, and cook for an additional 2 –3 minutes.
