Carrot Pumpkin Spice Waffles

Waffles7NEW

I’m always looking for ways to incorporate veggies into the food that I cook, even when it’s breakfast! And especially when there are kids (or husbands) involved. I also make these for my personal chef clients who need on the go breakfasts- they can be made ahead and transport easily. They are gluten-free but who would know?

 

I like to make these on some Sundays for brunch  or special occasions with my hubby (he cracks the eggs and usually by then I’m chasing him around the kitchen with a spatula telling him to stop driving me crazy, it’s very romantic!). 

So, on to the recipe! I love carrot cake and I love pumpkin,  so why not put those together for some lovely waffles?

Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree (or sweet potato puree)
  • ½ cup (heaping) grated carrots
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 2 Tbl maple syrup
  • 1¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbl coconut flour
  • ¾ cup almond flour
  • ¼ cup tapioca flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1½ Tbl ghee or coconut oil
  • ⅓ cup raisins
Instructions
  1. Preheat your waffle iron and brush with a little coconut oil or ghee.
  2. In a mixing bowl combine the pumpkin puree and carrots, mix, then add the eggs, syrup and vanilla.
  3. In another mixing bowl combine the flours, spices and salt, use a whisk to evenly mix and get rid of any clumps.
  4. Slowly sprinkle the dry ingredients into the egg mixture, whisking as you go to avoid clumps.
  5. Add the ghee/coconut oil, then the raisins, stir to combine.
  6. Scoop batter into your waffle maker and cook until golden brown- waffle makers come in different sizes so experiment with how much batter to pour until you get the perfect waffle.
  7. For my waffle maker I got 6 small waffles, which was good for 2 people.
  8. I suggest you double the recipe so you have some extras- they hold up great in the fridge for a snack the next day.
