Grain-Free Carrot Cake Waffles

To be honest, I rarely make waffles. But, the other day it was National Waffle Day, and even though I think this is one of those silly holidays that doesn’t actually exist, I felt inspired… So here I am with this Skyler Swap carrot cake waffles recipe just because I needed some more waffle in my life! I also was thinking of different desserts that I could play off of to turn this not only into a breakfast dish, but into a potential dessert as well.

The cool thing about this recipe is that these waffles are made 100% grain-free. We do use flax seed meal, but no grains. They are also made of sweet potatoes and carrots, without any other starch or ingredient to hold everything together. Oh, don’t forget the ginger. This is an anti-inflammatory powerhouse and a great way to start your day. Finally, the “cream cheese frosting” we use is Greek yogurt based with a hint of raw honey and vanilla. Unless the ingredients you are buying have any additives, this recipe should be all natural and delish!
