I was pretty excited by how these turned out. The batter was thinner than I was hoping but the end product was better than I had expected. I made these in a silicone waffle pan that bakes in the oven but I am certain these would work in a regular waffle maker or even in a skillet as pancakes.
This makes 6 waffles, each 67 calories, 6 carbs, 3 fat, and 5 protein.
I make 3 waffles one serving so - 200 calories, 19 carbs, 8 fat, and 15 protein per serving.
Add on 2 chopped strawberries and a tablespoon of maple syrup and you have breakfast for 250 calories, 29 carbs, 8 fat, and 15 protein.
That works for me, thank you very much.
Oh, by the way, these are also gluten free if you are worried about gluten!
Low Carb Low Cal Waffles
1/2 cup 0 fat Greek yogurt, plain
3 Tbsp 1% milk
2 pkgs Sugar Twin Stevia
2 Tbsp ground flax
3 Tbsp cornstarch
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
Preheat oven to 350. Spray silicone waffle pan with cooking spray, set aside.
In a medium size mixing bowl, whisk together the Greek yogurt, eggs, and milk until smooth.
In a smaller mixing bowl, stir together Stevia, flax, cornstarch, cinnamon, and baking powder.
Slowly whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until smooth.
Pour evenly into prepared pan.
Bake at 350 for 10 - 15 minutes, until tops are browned and waffles have risen.
Carefully invert waffles onto cookie sheet.
Place back in oven and turn on broiler. Broil until tops are well browned and appear dry. About 5 minutes - keep an eye on them.
Serve hot with your favorite toppings.
Only 67 calories per waffle... how awesome is that? I ate 3 and then froze 3. I reheated the frozen ones in the toaster oven (from frozen) and they turned out just perfect.
These are great for breakfast or brunch or for when you want breakfast for dinner. They are also awesome little snacks for any time of day!
**UPDATE** - I made these in my Belgian waffles maker and they turned out fabulous! The recipe above made 2 Belgian (large) waffles. Recipe can easily be doubled to make 4 Belgian waffles!
