Ingredients

    2 tbsp Unsalted Butter
    3 large eggs
    2 tbsp Almond Flour (Ground almonds)
    1/2tsp Flax Flour (ground flax seed) optional
    a little less than 1/4c Heavy Whipping Cream
    OR
    1/4 cup sugar free syrup or water (see comments below)

    *Original Author suggested using about a tablespoon of syrup, or other sweetener, and add water to it to make 1/4 cup of liquid.

    I think any liquid will work considering consistency is slightly thin. Next time I might try whipping the cream the same way most Belgian waffle recipes stiffen the egg whites.

Tips

See My Coconut (Palm) Sugar Syrup:
http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?recipe=2808458&ff=1

Coconut sugar is known for low GI. So still high carbs (8g) but worth it. To me. :)


Directions

-Melt butter & put in a medium bowl.
-Whisk/mix (on low) in the remaining ingredients in the order given, blending well after each addition.
-Let stand for 5-10 minutes so that the flour & baking powder absorbs some of the liquid.
-Meanwhile preheat & grease waffle iron
*I greased mine lightly with bacon grease to increase crispiness*
-Slowly pour into waffle iron just enough batter to almost fill the grid.
*I poured about 1/4c of batter very slowly into each waffle space & let it rise a little before closing, avoiding spilling over. Otherwise 1/8c to fill bottom of spots & they will just be thin or crepe-like & more servings. I might try center of iron next time*
-Bake until golden brown.
-Gently remove from the waffle iron.

If not using right away:
Original Author suggests cooling completely on a rack & freezing them in a single layer before putting them in a plastic bag.
-To reheat, warm them in a toaster oven.

Serving Size: 4 (5x5 waffle squares) waffles or 1 whole waffle iron of 4 waffles

    Good
    My Atkins hubby likes this. We like the flax in it. Happy with the whipping cream w/o other sweetening. - 10/4/15
