Carrot-Raisin Waffles

Carrot-Raisin Waffles

Serves 6 (1 8-inch waffle each)

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.
  • 1 ½ cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 3 Tbs. light brown sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 2 Tbs. vegetable oil
  • ¾ cup finely grated carrots
  • 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. Serve immediately, or transfer to baking sheet and keep warm in oven. Repeat with remaining batter, lightly coating iron with cooking spray each time.

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!
