Low Carb Blueberry Waffles



Who doesn't enjoy hot, fluffy waffles? This recipe is easy to throw together and very delicious! You can add any berries that you like, but I chose blueberries for this recipe. If you like a buttermilk flavor you can add 1/2 tbls of white vinegar to the half & half. Allow it to sit and thicken for 2-3 minutes before adding it to the batter. Either way, you can't go wrong!

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup of my Low Carb Flour Mix 
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp guar or xanthan gum (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup half & half
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbls light olive oil or melted butter
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries

In a mixing bowl combine the Flour Mix, baking powder, cinnamon and guar or xanthan gum if using. In a small bowl combine the eggs, half & half, vanilla and oil or butter, beat and add to dry ingredients. Fold in berries and pour onto a prepared hot waffle iron. Bake according to your iron's directions. Top with sugar-free syrup and fresh whipping cream if you like. These waffles are so delicious, Enjoy!
