The recipe is pretty straightforward and it comes together much quicker than other waffle recipes. You will need a few tools to make sure it is executed well, but the ingredients you most likely already have in the fridge.

How To Make Carrot Waffles
Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
Mix until everything is well combined and a batter is formed.
Heat the waffle maker and spray with a non-stick spray or brush with a little bit of vegetable oil.
Scoop about a cup of the batter and pour over the waffle maker. The amount really depends on the size of your waffle maker, so start small and increase if needed.
Close it and cook for a minute or two or until cooked through. You should be able to take the waffle out without it falling apart.
Transfer to a plate and serve immediately.
What should I pair carrot waffles with?
I like eating them just as they are with some sour cream or hummus on the side. However, you can pair them with any breakfast or lunch you are having as well. They go great with salads or on a sandwich.
How long should I cook them for?
Generally speaking, the waffle maker does all the work. If you can lift the top without pulling, the waffles are ready to come out. If you are looking for a crispier texture, than leave them on for a minute longer.
- 1 cup carrot grated
- 1 cup sweet potato peeled and grated
- ½ onion peeled and thinly sliced

- In a mixing bowl combine all ingredients except for the garnishes. Mix well until well incorporated.
- Preheat the waffle iron and spray with non-stick spray. Scoop 1 cup of the batter and pour into the waffle maker. Try not to overfill it because it will make a mess.
- Close the waffle iron and cook for a minute or two. Lift the top and transfer the waffle to a plate. Repeat with the rest of the batter and serve immediately.
