You will love these carrot cake waffles!  Feels so indulgent, but healthy!

Every Monday I stop at the train station mini market and pick up fruit for my fruit bowl at my desk.  Last week they had a TWO POUND bag of baby carrots for .79 cents so you know I couldn’t pass up that deal!

Except only one tiny problem – I am not a huge fan of raw baby carrots. I think the big carrots are so much more flavorful.  But I know I could figure out something to do with them, and that’s how these carrot cake waffles were born.

I put this recipe into the WW recipe builder and each waffle is 3 smart points each – no matter if you eat one or all 9!  And because I just wrote that out like “Biz math” you do have to multiply 3 x however many waffles you eat.  The whole batch isn’t 3 points 😀

But two were plenty.   I used my 1/3 measuring cup for each waffle.

Calories 169 kcal


  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1/2 cup splenda (or no calorie sweetener of choice)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups carrots


  • Preheat your waffle maker according your manufacturer instructions. I have a cheap $15 waffle maker from Walmart.
  • In a bowl, mix the flour, splenda, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon.
  • In a food processor, add the oat milk and vinegar and let that sit for 5 minutes - it's making like a mock buttermilk.
  • Add the baby carrots and eggs and puree. Add to flour mixture and stir to combine.
  • Using a 1/3 cup measure, spray the waffle maker in between each batch. I cook mine on medium heat for about 3-4 minutes each.

Breakfast with my stepson and his wife!

My stepson and his wife were in town this weekend!  They were able to squeeze me into their busy weekend, which I love.  Joe came into my life 19 years ago and will be turning 30 years old this September!  I can hardly believe it.

I lost .8 on the WW scale, but -1.8 on my home scale (which is helping in my DietBet!) and with only 9 days before the final weigh in, I need to make good choices.

Burnt Toast is known for it’s cheezy skillets, and also serves Certified Angus Beef ® brand beef!  I almost got the steak and eggs, but instead got two scrambled eggs, fruit cup and ate half a piece of toast.

And saved Liz with her bloody mary (she’s vegan!) and ate her bacon.  I pretty much saved her life!

They will be married 7 years this fall.

I’m so happy to have him in my life, even after his Dad is no longer with us. 

And I puffy heart Liz!  She has a great vegan cooking channel on YouTube – you can check it out here.

Love Joe’s long arms for this selfie!  So great to see you guys.

It was a gorgeous weekend – it rained a bit yesterday, but temps in the 60’s?  Yes please!  I did my first pit barrel cook of the season.

It was my late husband’s favorite thing to do once it got nice out was to hang out outside together.  I really missed him this weekend.

I have to really focus these next 9 days to meet my DietBet goal – our pot is nearly $20,000!  I’ll let you know if I host another one.

Did you plan your meals for the week?  What’s on your menu?

Always looking for new ideas.

Happy Monday friends – make it a great day, and don’t eat like an asshole!
