Ah, waffles, how you lift my heart and fill my tummy!
Usually ‘though, they aren’t exactly good for my health (even if they are very, very good for my soul). But there need be no more guilt for me as I dig out my waffle maker from next to the deep fat fryer in the back of my pantry.
These Carrot Cake Waffles are full of wonderfully nutritious ingredients and you could have them everyday if you want!
I don’t know about you, but when I stumble across a recipe that is not full of butter, sugar and flour where it classically should be, I am deeply suspicious. It takes a lot for me to trust in overtly “healthy” and righteous looking recipes but after I fell in love with my Oat Pancake recipe, I simply had to find other ways to use it.
Waffles come in different forms – there are the savoury potato heavy ones (like these), the yeasted brioche-like ones (like these) and then there are the waffles which are essentially pancake batter cooked in a waffle iron.
These Carrot Cake Waffles are light and fluffy, but substantial enough to be brunch on a lazy day or breakfast when you have a lot of activity planned! Plus, they are easy to make – beat the ingredients, leave to stand, cook in a waffle iron. Job Done!
Now, you might be a bit worried at the appearance the grated carrot and the spice gives the batter, but you’ll be surprised how the carrots melt into the batter upon cooking. The waffles come out golden and glorious. Plus, how often do we get a portion of vegetables with our breakfast? Not often enough I bet!
These waffles would fit in with an SP day if you switch the yogurt out for plain quark, both in the batter and on top. Another thing you could do is Syn a little cream cheese, beat in a little orange extract and perhaps some sweetener or for me, maple syrup, and have the full on carrot cake experience with a creamy topping to your hot waffles.
