Mom’s Cream Cheese Waffles

Mother’s Day is a great event in our home, and traditionally, it is a chance to make breakfast for Mom.

In our home, Mom has always loved waffles.  But changing to a low carbohydrate diet put a damper on the waffles for a while, until my sweet wife found and perfected the following recipe. (She adapted this recipe fromJennifer Eloff’s Cream Cheese Bran Waffle recipe found in her book, Splendid Low Carbing for Life Vol 1.) These waffles are amazing! They are now lovingly referred to in our home as “Mom’s Cream Cheese Waffles.”
Because I’ve found that Splenda© spikes the insulin and slows weight loss in a significant percentage of my patient’s we’ve changed up the sweetener below.

Breakfast for Mother’s Day in our home consisted of Mom’s Cream Cheese Waffles, freshly grilled thick slice bacon and strawberry flavored homemade whipped cream to top off the waffles and was easily prepared by my 13 year old daughter.  It’s a perfect Low Carb Mother’s Day meal that’ll satisfy the waffle craving and still give the gift of “ketosis”.
Enjoy!

  2. We made this recipe this morning and cannot figure out how you were able to only get 1g of carbs per waffle. The best we could figure was each waffle was about 10g per waffle. Can you explain how you were able to get the carbs so low?

    • I guess I should have specified that the carb content is “Net Carbs.” Erythritol is not absorbed, nor does it stimulate and insulin response and the Carbaluse Flour is 19g of “net carbs” (the rest is non-absorbable fiber) per cup. Wheat germ is a fiber as well, so depending on how many waffles you actually make out of it, the carb count is 1-2 grams of absorbable or “net” carbohydrate per waffle. Hope that helps.
