Is there any better breakfast than warm waffles with a drizzle of maple syrup? Nicely spiced & crisp, these carrot waffles are some of my favorites.
It’s springtime, and one of my favorite veggies is in peak season – the humble carrot. I love them in soups, in tacos, in cake (see here or here for a vegan version)… and right now they’re my favorite vegetable to eat for breakfast. Currently, I’m alternating between carrot cookies and these waffles that are – you guessed it – in the new cookbook!
This is one of my favorite recipes, (and also one of my favorite photos from the book – how sweet is this little breakfast scene that Jenn set up!?)
I like to make these on a Sunday morning and store the extras in the freezer for easy weekday waffling. I let them thaw slightly and then pop them in the toaster until they’re crisp around the edges.
