For the Whole Wheat Carrot Cake Waffles:
For the Cream Cheese Whipped Cream:
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened (the kind in a brick, not lowfat, not whipped, not the kind in a tub)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy cream, cold
Make the Whole Wheat Carrot Cake Waffles:
  1. Preheat a waffle baker.

  2. In a large bowl, place the flours, nuts, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, spices, and salt, and stir to combine.
  3. In a large liquid measure, place the milk, carrot, pineapple, melted butter, Greek yogurt, eggs, and vanilla, and stir to combine.
  4. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry, and stir just until barely combined. (Do not overmix, or the waffles could come out tough. The batter should be lumpy.)

  5. Place about ½ cup of batter onto the hot waffle iron, and bake for about 3 minutes, or until golden brown.

  6. Keep warm in a low oven.

Make the Cream Cheese Whipped Cream:
  1. Place the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract in a small bowl and whip on medium speed for about 3 minutes with the whip attachment.
  2. Slowly drizzle in the cold heavy cream, while whipping on medium speed.
  3. Scrape the bottom and sides of the mixing bowl with a silicone spatula, increase the speed to medium high, and continue to whip until stiff peaks form.
