Weekend mornings are meant for waffles. Breakfast has always been my favorite meal of the day. Making breakfast Saturday morning for the entire family, makes it even more special.
Starting our morning sitting around the table enjoying each other’s company, and sharing a moment together, sets the tone for the day.
Coming up with a low carb option that even our picky teenage son would enjoy, can be a challenge. Finding ways to lure him to share our low carb meals has to be strategic. Which is why waking up to the smell of bacon usually does the trick.
If you’ve never tried cooking your bacon in the oven, you have no idea what you have been missing. Let’s face it most people love bacon, but the clean-up afterwards can be such a chore. Cooking it in the oven always produces crisp consistent bacon. I then save the drippings in the fridge to cook with. A delicious perk.
When Matt came into the kitchen he was excited to see I was making waffles, but leery about how they would turn out since they are low carb. “You can have them with bacon”, I told him. Now, I had his attention and just like that he was eating my low carb waffles!
This recipe is easy and produces light, airy, crispy waffles. It was a true winner in our home.

Easy Low Carb Waffles
1 cup of golden flax meal
1 ¼ cup of whey protein powder (choose one low in carbs)
1/2 tsp salt
3 tablespoons of sugar substitute
1 tablespoon of baking powder
1 cup of heavy cream
1 cup of water
1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar (optional step)
4 tablespoons of melted butter
Preheat waffle iron. Combine all your dry ingredients. Mix your heavy cream with the water and 1 teaspoon of vinegar and mix well. Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients and stir until fully combined. Cook on a hot waffle iron that has been greased well with butter or coconut oil.
I find that these cook up fairly quickly, so keep an eye on them. It’s important to grease between each waffle. This recipe makes about 6 medium sized waffles. Serve with sugar-free syrup, or your favorite low carb topping.
Note that this batter works great for low carb pancakes too. 4.3 net carbs per waffle
Freeze any leftover waffles to quickly warm in your toaster, for busy weekdays.
