Low carb waffles have just 1.9 net carbs each in this fast, easy recipe. They are a delicious change of pace from eggs when you are looking for an Atkins-friendly breakfast. They’re gluten-free, too! There’s lots of fiber and healthy coconut oil to keep your cravings far, far away.
I will be the first to admit that I have a deep, dark secret that tends to force me to shoot myself in the foot when it comes to my low-carb eating plan. I would often rather skip breakfast that eat one. more. damn. egg.
The problem is when I skip breakfast I get hungry and then after my work out my stomach is eating itself and I walk into the house, straight to the pantry and grab the first thing that looks good to me — generally it’s not something low-carb. There are days when I would almost trade one of my kids for a pancake or a dang chocolate donut.
I want to feel normal again, you know? Just be able and sit down to a normal breakfast. Something eggs aren’t a part of. I am tired of being bored with breakfast!
Well, no more. My kids will be relieved to know that there is no danger of them being traded off because these low carb waffles are amazing. Are they a perfect substitute for the waffles you probably grew up with? No, they aren’t but they are delicious and they will hold gallons of sugar free syrup and melted butter and they will keep your blood sugar in check.
I saw these apple waffles on All Day I Dream About Food and I thought they looked yummy but apples are a rare treat for me and I needed something I could eat every single day if I wanted to. I used Carolyn’s recipe as the foundation for this one and changed very little… I have some more ideas so you’ll probably be seeing more low carb waffles in the future.
