Carrot-Banana Waffles, Paleo (Nut & Sweetener Free)

I try to vary my breakfast as much as possible, and love to include vegetables on a regular basis. Yesterday, I was in the mood for something sweeter and created this recipe.


There’s no need for sweetener, except for some melted honey and fruit over top. Also, it’s nut free, for those of you who like me, get tired of nut flours in baking.


I ate my first batch and made a second, pictured, to freeze. So I didn’t want to cover them up with any toppings. They are great the next day, toasted in the oven!
