Paleo Zucchini & Carrot Waffles

paleo zucchini carrot waffles

My past self would have been afraid to eat waffles.

My current self believes waffles are always appropriate.

Combine that with cold winter mornings. Which is an understatement when it's subzero weather... Anyhow, waffles are especially savored in these conditions with family gathered around the table. Plus, there are so many nourishing waffle recipes available these days packed with fiber, protein, and even veggies in some cases!

I modified a few different paleo waffle recipes to create a lightly sweetened waffle that could be topped with a variety of yummy edible embellishments.

Walnuts, blueberries, maple syrup, nut butter, cinnamon, raw honey, chia seeds, dried shredded coconut, strawberries, flaxseed, jam or preserves...

The possibilities are endless. These little guys were delightfully satisfying as you can imagine and didn't leave us feeling sluggish. We froze the leftovers and toasted them the next few mornings for quick and easy breakfasts.

Did I just rock your meal prep world? Waffles for breakfast every morning! Consider this permission.

 

Paleo Zucchini & Carrot Waffles


Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup carrots grated
  • 1 1/2 cups of zucchini grated
  • 1/2 banana mashed
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnemon
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut oil melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Place your grated zucchini and carrot in a tea towel or paper towel and wring out as much water as possible.

  2. Add your eggs to a large bowl and beat.

  3. Add your almond flour, spices, vegetables and melted coconut oil. Make sure to let your coconut oil cool a few minutes so that it is still liquid but not boiling hot and won't cook the eggs.

  4. Spoon about 1/4 cup of the mixture onto the middle of the waffle iron and cook. If you waffle maker requires greasing before hand please do that. 

  5. This recipe should make 6 medium size waffles.

*You may need to set your waffle iron to the longest cooking setting for crisper waffles since there is so much liquid in the recipe due to vegetables. Wring well!

Let me know how you like them and what was your favorite topping!

Eat (waffles) in your lane,
