Carrot Cinnamon Waffles
Adapted from Boston Magazine. It was passed along to us from our friends at Prairie Drifter Farm in Litchfield, MN. It’s a delicious flavor with the cinnamon and cloves, especially topped with butter or yogurt and maple syrup. You could also substitute beets for a bright color.
1-1/2 C flour (we used all whole wheat flour with good results)
3-4 Tbsp. sugar (white and/or brown)
1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. cloves
1-1/4 cup milk or non-dairy alternative
4 Tbsp. (1/2 stick) butter/margarine, melted
1-1/2 c. grated carrots
Preheat a waffle iron to medium heat. Spray with nonstick spray if needed. 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. Cook
according to your waffle iron’s directions.
