Healthy Whole Wheat Carrot Waffles are the best homemade waffles that are as delicious as they are healthy. Infused with warm spices and fresh carrots, these easy instant waffles make a great weekend brunch. Pair it with applesauce as a healthier alternative to syrup!
Have you ever seen those commercials advertising breakfast or waffles that look more like dessert than a way to start the day off?
Syrup and compotes and whipped cream with sugar upon sugar upon sugar. I don’t even want to look at the calories in one of those plates!
However, I love pancakes and waffles and when you skip all the sugar laden accoutrements, it’s a actually a pretty healthy breakfast.
In this version, I have paired Healthy Waffles made with whole grains and carrots with a mango applesauce. Infused with the spices we find in carrot cake, these waffles are a great way to have your cake and eat it too!
The mango applesauce is such a great complimenting condiment that really, the syrup is not necessary. However, if you want to be more decadent, especially for a weekend brunch – you can still serve it with syrup.
What if you don’t have a waffle iron? No problem – you can easily make Healthy Carrot Cake Pancakes with this same waffle mix.
