This recipe is very adaptable. You could also use grated zucchini, summer squash, or grated raw beets in this recipe. They would make some beautiful red waffles! Makes about 6 waffles, depending on your waffle maker. Easy to double the recipe and freeze half for later!
1 c. white flour
1/2 c. wheat flour (we also added 1/4 c. eight grain cereal mix)
3 T. sugar
1 ½ t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
¼ t. salt
1 t. cinnamon
¼ t. cloves
1 ¼ c. milk or non-dairy alternative
4 T. (1/2 stick), melted (you could also use canola or vegetable oil)
1 ½ c. grated carrots
Preheat a waffle iron to medium high heat. Spray with nonstick spray. In a large bowl combine the flour, sugars, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and cloves. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and butter. Add the egg mixture into the dry ingredients and whisk until well combined. Stir in carrots.
