Atkins Diet Recipes: Low Carb Waffles (E-IF)

One of the things my daughter really wanted for her birthday was a wafflemaker.  She had always been a fan of them when we went to stay overnight in hotels, so what dad would not want to try to make his daughter’s day?  I got a Waring Pro Double Wafflemaker — with 4 kids a single wafflemaker would only lead to fighting as they fought over who’s was next.

So she really loved the wafflemaker, but here sits on my counter an appliance I had not a use for yet for myself.  I wanted to make a low carb waffle recipe that would be enough for a week of breakfast and was substantial enough to fill in the belgian wafflemaker.    I went back to my low carb pancake recipe and did some tweaking.  The first thing to go was the Atkins Baking Mix.  I really don’t like to make recipes that require me to have a specific only-mail order ingredient.  It’s just now how I roll, and I think more people when looking for recipes to make are looking for recipes with items they already have in their pantry.  I replaced the Atkins Baking Mix with 2 mainstays, which I have done the most work in baking recently — almond flour and ground coconut (homemade coconut flour).   I also tripled the amount to boost the recipe.   I additionally increased the number of eggs and

Some have asked what did I top these waffles with, and I just wanted to clear that up.  In my pancake video, I mentioned a couple syrups in that video, but last night I had a new one — Walden Farms Blueberry Syrup.  I honestly liked their regular pancake syrup but even better is Vermont Farms Sugar Free Syrup.  Another idea would be powdered Splenda with Cinnamon.
