Gluten Free Carrot Cake Waffles

Happy International Waffle Day!  Today is one of two Waffle holidays that happen each year.  And I’m pretty sure they only have double holidays for the very best foods.  

These Carrot Cake Waffles are sure to be a hit at your celebration.  I’ve drizzled mine with a Cream Cheese Maple Syrup (recipe below), but plain syrup would be delicious too.  These Carrot Cake Waffles are here just in time for Easter next weekend.  Because you know bunnies love carrots and people love carrot cake and waffles, so win win!

  • Preheat your waffle maker.
  • In a large bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients. Set aside.
    3/4 C Gluten Free Oat Flour, 1 1/4 C Gluten Free 1-to-1 Flour Blend, 2 tsp Baking Powder, 1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon, 1/2 tsp Nutmeg, 1/4 tsp Ginger, 3/4 tsp Salt, 3 Tbsp Sugar

  • Cook according to your waffle maker directions until waffles are brown and are easily removed from the waffle iron. Mine takes about 5-7 minutes per batch.

For the cream cheese maple syrup

  • Whisk all ingredients together. You may have to heat for 10-20 seconds in the microwave to get a pour-able consistency. Pour over waffles and top with additional chopped pecans if desired.
