Traditional belgian waffle – low carb

Lately I have been making Belgian waffles everyday. I am not kidding when I say “everyday”. I’m hooked.

The recipe for this traditional Belgian waffle is super simple, is low carb and a great option for a healthier waffles version for the family.

 

Eating a high fat breakfast with moderate amounts of protein can sound like an unhealthy thing to most people, but that’s not the truth.  I know we have been told that we need to eat low-fat to lose weight but that is only true for unhealthy processed fats. When you are consuming natural sources of fats such as eggs, almonds, coconut oil and avocados, you are actually helping your body lose the stored stubborn fat. Of course, everything in moderation!

 

A typical high sugar breakfast can look like cereal and conventional juice (you can also call it liquid sugar), vanilla yogurt and a granola bar or a donut.  Growing up eating bread at almost every meal I know how comforting those foods are and I also know that it was like an addiction. I was always looking for the next break to have bread, pasta or a cookie.

 

When I switched to a low starch, anti-inflammatory diet, I realised that I can still eat delicious food that are also nutritious and won’t leave me craving sweets.

Now, these waffles definitely have a high fat percentage. If you have no grains sensitivities and would like to add more carbohydrates, you can simply substitute half the amount of almond flour with oat flour or brown rice flour. It is up to you yet I always suggest a healthier version. I try to stay away from wheat as much as possible.

Now let me show you how I make this addictive traditional Belgian waffle.

Of course you will need a waffle maker. I use a Flip Belgian Waffle Maker and I absolutely love it.
I always buy Bob’s Red Mill almond flour. It is a great quality.

Instructions
  1. Heat up your waffle maker and spray it with coconut oil if you wish. I have skipped this step few times and I've been able to smoothly remove the waffles
  2. Pour the batter into the waffle maker. Aim for the center. Flip the waffle maker and wait for the warm green light indicator. Depending on the waffle maker you have, you may have different instruction on when the waffle is ready. In most cases, 2 minutes is about enough time to cook them.
  3. When your waffle is ready, remove it from the waffle maker and place the butter on top while warm. The butter will melt.
  4. Add the cinnamon and honey if you like.
  5. Enjoy your low carb belgian waffle!
