I needed a fun brunch idea for our Spring celebration and I was drawing a blank. I was craving carrot cake but wanted it to be breakfast-y. I thought about making carrot muffins but that just seemed too pedestrian. The morning of the brunch is when it hit me. Carrot cake waffles! Boy, am I glad I had that thought, and in the nick of time too. These spicy carrot cake waffles will be my new go-to brunch favorite!

Sprouted Wheat, Organic Carrots, Raw Honey, and Real Butter

These are just a few of the wholesome and nutritious ingredients in these waffles. No need to feel guilty when you are getting nutrient-dense sprouted whole grains, fresh veggies, and raw food enzymes with your breakfast! Don’t forget the healthy fats! Both the waffles and frosting are made with real pastured butter, one of the best sources of fat-soluble vitamins, important trace minerals, fatty acids, and CLA (conjugated linoleic acid). We love real butter around here!

For the Waffles

  1. In a large bowl mix the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and spices with a whisk.

  3. Slowly whisk the milk and egg mixture into the flour mixture just until incorporated.

For the Frosting

  1. Have the butter and honey softened at room temperature.

  1. Preheat your waffle iron. Scoop the desired amount of batter into the hot iron and let it cook until golden brown.

  3. Top each waffle with a dollop of honey butter "frosting"!
