Carrot-Raisin Waffles

These waffles have it all——the good-grain richness of whole wheat, the spicy sweetness of cinnamon and the healthful fiber of carrots and raisins.



Ingredient Line: 
1 ½ cups whole wheat pastry flour
Ingredient Line: 
3 Tbs. light brown sugar
Ingredient Line: 
1 ½ tsp. baking powder
Ingredient Line: 
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
Ingredient Line: 
½ tsp. baking soda
Ingredient Line: 
¼ tsp. salt
Ingredient Line: 
2 large eggs
Ingredient Line: 
1 cup low-fat buttermilk
Ingredient Line: 
2 Tbs. vegetable oil
Ingredient Line: 
¾ cup finely grated carrots
Ingredient Line: 
½ cup raisins


  1. Lightly coat waffle iron with cooking spray, and preheat. Preheat oven to 200F.
  2. Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt in large bowl.
  3. Whisk together eggs, buttermilk and oil, and stir into flour mixture. Fold in carrots and raisins.
  4. Ladle 1/2 cup batter (or amount recommended in manufacturer’s directions) onto waffle iron. Close lid, and cook 4 minutes, or until golden. Gently open lid, and remove waffle with fork.

Comments on this Recipe

sorry what shoul i top these with?

I made these for my 22 month old son. I did not have any more raisins, and I added nutmeg. I also used Soya Milk instead of buttermilk. The batter mixes up very well. I cooked mine for 6-7 minutes, and I needed more than half a cup, my waffle iron must be much bigger. Very good taste. My son kept saying More, More, More. Kid approved!
