Let me welcome you to your latest obsession – this low carb waffle. You know, I actually have a strong love for carbs. They have always been there for me even when I pushed them away. When I needed a shoulder to cry on, they had my back. Carbs hang with the cool kids. We all want to hang with the cool kids. Carbs are not the enemy that diet culture seems to make them out to be.
Every once in awhile I get a whim to make a recipe that uses pretty cool ingredients like coconut flour, a low carb protein powder and a little ground flax for some binding action. Once I ate said recipe I realized it was the best damn low carb creation I’ve ever made and promptly topped it with (you guessed it) CARBS. Pass me the chocolate chips, maple syrup and banana coins please and thank you.
Now, if you have any medical reason to why carbs are the enemy – I get you and you should definitely ‘do you’ but in either case, this recipe is clearly for everyone!
Dying to tell everyone you made this recipe and loved it?? Don’t forget to share a picture and tag @thekellykathleen so that I can profess my love to you and re-share it for all to see!
5-Ingredient Low Carb Waffle
The only vegan, gluten-free, high protein waffle recipe that you'll ever need!!
- 1 flax egg 1 tbsp ground flaxseed + 3 tbsp water
- 3 tbsp plant-based milk
- 2 tbsp coconut flour
- 1/2 serving Smooth Vanilla protein by Nuzest
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- Pinch of salt optional
- Sugar of choice optional and to preference
In a small bowl, stir all the ingredients together. While your waffle iron preheats, let the batter sit and rest.
Once your waffle iron is preheated, spray the waffle iron heavily with nonstick cooking spray. Spoon the batter into the center of the iron and spread out evenly with a spatula. (It will be thick!!)
Let the batter set for 30-60 seconds before closing the lid. This ensures the waffle will stay nice and fluffy!
Waffle cook for 5-7 minutes before topping with whatever you’d like and enjoying!
