Step 1

Preheat waffle iron.

Step 2

In a large bowl, mix dry ingredients.

Step 3

In a separate small bowl, whisk together eggs and buttermilk.

Step 4

Blend the mixture into dry ingredients with a broad spatula or wooden spoon, stirring just until no streaks of flour remain.

Step 5

Stir in melted butter, being careful not to over mix. Gently fold in carrots, raisins and coconut.

Step 6

Cook waffles according to the iron manufacturer’s instructions (usually about ½ cup batter and a 5 minute cooking time). Keep the waffles warm by placing them on a warm baking sheet in a 200° F oven while cooking remaining batter; to keep them crisp, don’t cover them. Serve with mascarpone, syrup and pecans.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I left out the raisins and added walnuts (chopped up fine) and crushed pineapple. They were a huge hit with my husband and son. I topped them with cream cheese butter. So good!

I love that these waffles are healthy, which is always a plus. I topped ours with maple syrup and candied pecans. They are sooo delicious and the kids licked their plates clean!
