Hey everyone! Sorry I have been gone for so long. Christmas holidays as you know 🙂 I have to admit I ate pretty bad..I still stuck to a healthy breakfast and lunch but splurged a bit on those delicious turkey dinners. My Mom makes some awesome Christmas cookies! Anyways, after all this terrible eating I had to come home and get back to my healthy eating immediately! That’s why I started today with this super tasty waffle! Yup you heard me right. Waffles for breakfast. And yes, they are in fact guilt-free.
So how might you ask are these crazy-delicious looking things at all healthy? Well they just happen to be made with a few simple ingredients.
-2 egg whites + 1 more (or 2 egg whites + 1 whole egg)
-2 tbsp coconut flour
-pinch of salt(scant)
-1/8 tsp vanilla extract
-2 tbsp almond milk
-1/2 tsp baking powder
-1/2-1 tbsp carob chips
-1/2 tsp splenda or other sweetener to taste
Toppings(You can go crazy with these but I like..):
-1/4 of a large banana sliced
-extra 1/2 tbsp carob chips melted
Directions: Pre-heat a waffle maker to the middle heat setting(or whatever you find works best). In a medium bowl whip 2 egg whites to stiff peaks(I advise using a mixer or your arm may die, yes it is a good workout but believe me it’s not worth it, I tried haha). Once stiff, stir in your extra egg white, coconut flour, salt, vanilla, almond milk, baking powder and then carob chips.
Use a spatula to pour & spread batter into a hot waffle maker(If it is not non-stick, spray with pam first!). Close and let cook until crispy. (I just got an awesome cuisine art waffle-maker for christmas and it actually tells you when the waffle is finished!). Afterwards plate and top with chopped banana, additional carob chips and sugar-free syrup. Enjoy!! 🙂
