Low Carb Protein Waffles

IMG_1831After a post-christmas catch up with one of my best friends, I learned that she had been given a waffle maker for Christmas! I couldn’t resist organising a waffle making date to try out something new. Anyone who doesn’t have a waffle maker…firstly buy one (like I am going to) or you can use this recipe to make a stack of low carb pancakes.

These were utterly delicious. I topped mine with total 0% fat free greek yoghurt, a handful of blueberries, sprinkle of freeze dried raspberries, and flaked almonds. I finished the waffles with The protein works zero syrup in dark chocolate flavour. Because they are so low carb I could get away with one even on a low carb day!


Ingredients

  • 60g Almond Flour
  • 60g Vanilla whey protein powder
  • 2 tsp Baking powder
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tbsp Egg white (equivalent to the white of one large egg)
  • 1/2 tsp Stevia
  • 50ml Almond milk

Method 

  1. Heat up your waffle iron, or pancake pan if using the recipe for pancakes.
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl.
  3. Make a well in the middle of the dry mixture, and crack in the egg, add egg white and stir in.
  4. Slowly add milk a bit at a time, for the waffles you may not need the whole 50ml as the texture of waffles is usually a bit thicker than pancakes.
  5. Pour mix into the waffle maker or make pancakes.
