Vegan Carrot Waffles from the Love and Lemons Cookbook

Beyond spring being a wonderful time of year due to weather and produce, it's also a great time for new cookbooks. There are so many wonderful cookbooks coming out this spring that it's hard to know what to share. However, The Love and Lemons Cookbook is one you should definitely add to your list. These carrot waffles are the creation of Jeanine and just one of the many recipes I have on my list to try from the cookbook. The waffles are crisp on the outside, tender on the inside, all without any dairy or eggs. Jeanine hit it out of the park with these waffles (and carrots were the featured produce ingredient in this week's newsletter!)


Vegan Carrot Waffles

  • Author: Erin Alderson
  • Yield: 4 to 6 waffles 1x


  • Ingredients: 2 cups (500 mL) whole spelt flour or white/wheat mix
  • 2 teaspoon (10 mL) baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons (30 mL) ground flaxseed
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2 mL) cinnamon
  • 1 cup (250 mL) grated carrots
  • 2 cups (500 mL) almond milk at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) melted coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon (5 mL) vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons (30 mL) maple syrup, plus extra for serving
  • Sea salt
  • 1 recipe coconut cream (page 287 in the cookbook) (optional)


  1. Preheat a waffle iron.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, flaxseed, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together the grated carrots, almond milk, coconut oil, vanilla, and maple syrup. Fold the carrot mixture into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
  4. Scoop an appropriate amount of batter onto your waffle iron and cook until the edges are slightly crisp. Serve with maple syrup and the coconut cream, if using.

  1. This looks and sounds absolutely delicious! The carrots will lend the perfect texture to these waffles and make the recipe that much more festive. Now I want to check out Love and Lemons!

  2. This looks absolutely delicious! I must try sometime soon. Do you have any idea how many calories are in this dish? I'm trying to put together a meal plan for myself that fits a certain amount of calories a day. Does the cook book state it? Thank-you!
