What is better than Carrot Cake? Carrot Cake Waffles, obvi!

Carrot Cake Waffle-The Seasonal Junkie

I had 4 cake orders last week. As a result, my kitchen was a disaster. It looked like a cake bomb went off. There were very few places frosting wasn’t smeared. But thankfully, after a few hours of some tough love, my kitchen is presentable again. One of the cakes that was ordered was carrot cake, and I had a ton of left over crushed pineapple and carrots. Naturally, carrot cake waffles were my first thought on how to use up the leftover ingredients.

Break out your waffle maker and get ready for Carrot Cake Waffles

Carrot Cake Waffle-The Seasonal Junkie

Can you tell I am a little obsessed with fall? Well, if you can’t, I am. The weather starts to break, and everything pumpkin starts to show up. I am a sucker for fall spices and will convulsively buy anything fall related. As you can imagine, this can be dangerous. In the event of a Trader Joe’s trip, It is not unlike me have collected a whole pantry of Apple Cider. Oops.

In order to make a grain free waffle base for these carrot cake waffles, I mixed together almond flour, coconut flour, and arrowroot powder. The three mixed together provides enough structure that generally lacks in most grain free baking. If you are not a huge fan of carrot cake feel free to use this base and add different mix-ins.

I ended up topping off the carrot cake waffles with a honey cinnamon cream cheese. I use cream cheese that is actually made with Greek yogurt. It tastes awesome and is like half the fat! Anyways, these carrot cake waffles have spice, sweetness, and are sure to be a new family favorite. As a result, they are a great way to welcome fall into your home.

    Oh my gosh they look amazing! What an inspired combination. Whenever I make carrot cake I always end up with extra shredded carrots. Now I know what I can do with them. 😊
