    Totally loved this recipe! Very light but substantial. A perfect breakfast food for the low-carber who doesn't feel like meat in the morning. I did add a tbsp of coconut flour so I'm not sure how that affects the counts but it did add a bit more body to hold in my waffle maker. Thanks! - 1/25/11
