GLUTEN-FREE LOW-CARB WAFFLES (GF)
Gluten-Free Low-Carb Waffles
Easy and tasty! Toast them in the toaster when required to crisp them again. Use in place of bread with eggs and bacon or spread with spreadable cream cheese (6 oz cream cheese, 2 tbsp DaVinci; process) or use low-carb syrup. Lots of ideas - even strawberries or blueberries and whipped cream or Creme Fraiche or ice cream.
8 oz regular cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup Gluten-Free Bake Mix (link to the right under recipes - with coconut flour )
2 packets Splenda (optional)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
Preheat waffle maker for at least 10 to 15 minutes. This is important to prevent waffles from sticking. They must come out easily. Liberally brush inside forms with olive oil before placing 3 tbsp of batter on each form. Cook 3 minutes.
Process cream cheese, eggs, Gluten-Free Bake Mix, Splenda (if using), baking powder and baking soda in food processor or blender, scraping sides occasionally to incorporate all ingredients.
