My good friends, Tara and Aaron gave me this waffle iron for Christmas, and I must say, it makes pretty darn good waffles! So, thanks guys!
On Christmas morning, I treated my family with some delicious carrot, walnut, and raisin Belgian waffles! Notice below, I added “teff” flour into my batter. This is because teff is very nutritious. It has more protein than wheat, it is packed with calcium, and it contains iron and thiamine. I also added carrots for beta-carotene, walnuts for added protein and omega 3s, and raisins for added antioxidants.
These waffles have a crunchy outside and the inside is fluffy, sweet, and nutty. I hope you like it as much as we did!
