Waffles

  1. Peel and grate the carrots, set aside. Finely grated cook better in this recipe. Cream the eggs, butter, honey and sugar until the sugar is disolved.
  2. Sift remaining dry ingredients together. Add the flour, baking powder, salt, vanilla, and milk; mix well then add the grated carrot and melted butter and egg to the mixture. Fold in pineapple, carrots, coconuts, raisins, and nuts. Check thickness; if you feel it is too thin, add a little more flour or to thick add a little more milk.
  3. Heat griddle or pan to medium heat, and cook waffles or pancakes until they are golden brown. Enjoy them with the cream cheese or a small amount of warm pure maple syrup!

Cream Cheese Topping

  1. Mix softened cream cheese and remaining ingredients together. Form into a ball or rectangular shape and garnish with nuts. Use as an optinal topping for the waffles or for your morning toast..
  2. Another idea is to top with some warm homemade applesauce.
