Say HELLO to my whole wheat carrot waffles.
Good Morning! I guess I’m feeling a little Bugs Bunny with a Tony Montana accent today. Well that’s what happens when you have these waffles for breakfast and just happened to fall asleep last night watching Scarface. What happened to me? I woke up at 5AM and the TV screen was blue. Sad thing is, it was only 8pm when I put the movie on.
I boiled some carrots the other day and then pureed them in the food processor. The puree came out so smooth, I wanted to put it on my face. Actually I think it would be a nice facial mask. But anyway, what a really lovely bright orange color. This morning, with the idea of a bright orange breakfast, I decided to use the carrot puree to make waffles. But the bright orange did not make the waffles as bright as my mind dreamed they would. (scratches head)
I’m thinking, next time I’ll add more carrot puree.
The carrot flavor is not too intense as I was hoping for either so definitely adding more carrot puree.
So yeah, these waffles lack the vivid orange hue and the carrot-y flavor…
One thing I can tell you is that they are super moist. Very! That’s what veggie purees do.
Whole wheat flour. Carrot puree. Roasted sunflower seeds on top. Me loves this combination of healthy nutritious ingredients!
And with a dollop of marshmallow creme. (which I made this week… ‘cuz I just had to make more)
Along with a drizzle of maple syrup.
I mean hello, are you kidding me? Can breakfast get more delicious?!
Mmm, fluffy moist whole wheat waffles with a hint of carrot flavor. Go ahead and bite into these!
