Waffles

Waffles fit for Diabetic Royalty

(From store bought waffles? Are you kidding me?)

Serving size 1 waffle

net carbohydrates    15g

Notes: The only waffles I can find with a fairly low carbohydrate content is EGGO LOW FAT Nutrigrain waffles. Because there is so much butter used to make the “syrup”, I use SMART BALANCE spread, so as not to increase the cholesterol count too much. I think it all balances out with the fiber of the nuts and fruits.

I always keep a container of cinnamon/ granulated sugar substitute on hand.

I do 8 Tablespoons of sugar substitute to 1 Tablespoon cinnamon. You should adjust the formula depending on how much cinnamon flavor you like.

I often do a final topping of about a tablespoon of lightly sweetened sour cream, but a DANNON LIGHT AND FITvanilla yogurt will work as well.

 

2 – EGGO LOWFAT NUTRIGRAIN waffles.

4 – Tbsp. Butter

½ – cup walnuts or sliced almonds

pinch of salt

3 – Tbsp. Cinnamon/ granulated sugar mixture

1- cup fresh berries (strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries, alone or in any combination)

Vanilla or lightly sweetened sour cream for final topping (optional)

 

How to prepare the dish:

 

Toast the waffles until lightly crisped but not darkened.

In a skillet, melt the 4 Tbsp. of butter . Add the nuts and salt. Stir until the nuts are coated with butter. Add the cinnamon/ granulated sugar substitute. Stir to combine. Add the fruit and stir gently until warmed through and juices begin to release.

 

Place waffles on a plate and top with berry and nut mixture. It is perfect just as it is or you can top with DANNON LIGHT AND FITvanilla yogurt or sweetened sour cream.
