I’ve been diving into the world of grain-free cooking lately, as you may have noticed.
It’s not that I don’t love grains. It’s just that I’ve found that my body feels better when I focus on a diet rich in vegetables, nuts, dairy, protein, and healthy fats.
And guess what? I feel amazing!
I don’t feel hungry between meals. I don’t feel bloated, and my blood sugar stays steady throughout the day.
So, to make sure I’m still getting all the nutrients my body needs, I’ve been experimenting with new recipes and ingredients.
This delicious waffle recipe is one of my latest creations.
They’re grain-free but still packed with protein from eggs and dairy.
Plus, they’re moist and tasty.
I love topping them with homemade jam, coconut sugar, and chia seeds.
With no refined sugar or starch, it’s the perfect combination of sweet and creamy.
But if you’re in the mood for something savory, you can skip the sugar and spices in the batter. Instead, serve the waffles with ham, cheese, and tomatoes.
For a tasty snack or lunch, they’re even great in a wrap.
The best part is: These waffles are super easy to make.
Just mix all the ingredients together. Cook in a waffle iron.
You can also fry them in a pan and make pancakes if you don’t have one.
For the ultimate breakfast experience, I served mine with jam, yogurt, and a hot cup of coffee.
Trust me: These waffles will keep you full and satisfied for hours.
Try them. Let me know what you think!
Protein Waffles (Grain Free)
Grain free protein waffles
- 4 eggs
- 200 g cottage cheese
- 100 ml cream You can use a low fat cream, e.g. coffee cream, as long as it is 100% natural with no added starch etc.
- Zest from 1 organic lemon
- 2 tbsp coconut sugar
- 1 tsp cardamom
- ½ tsp ground vanilla
- 2 tbsp psyllium husk
Raspberry & chia jam
- 300 g raspberries frozen are just fine
- 3 tbsp coconut sugar
- 1 tsp ground vanilla
- Juice from 1/2 lemon
- 2 tbsp water
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- Combine all ingredients for the jam in a pot. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook for approximately 10 minutes. Blend or mash the berries. When cooled a bit add chia seeds and stir. Pour the jam into a jar and store in the fridge.
- Make the waffles by blending all ingredients. Let the dough sit for 15-20 min until it has become very thick. Heat the waffle iron to medium heat and spoon in the batter (around 2 Tbsp pr. waffle). You do not need to grease the waffle iron since the batter has enough fat on its own. Bake each waffle for 2-3 min.
- Serve the waffles with the jam and a dollop of creme fraiche, yoghurt or whipped cream.
