We’re almost halfway through January and I’m happy to say that I’ve been a good girl by sticking to my New Year’s resolution of eating a low carb diet! Yay! As I’ve said before, I’m really wanting to lose a few pounds and have found in the past that this is the best way for me to do that. But the thing is, I get to eat lots of really delicious foods. I don’t feel like I’m being deprived. At all! Isn’t that awesome! And these Low Carb Peanut Butter & Berry Waffles are a perfect example of that. They’re made with JIF Peanut Powder which is great because it has the same amount of protein as traditional peanut butter, but with 85% less fat.
These waffles are also gluten free and very low in sugar. I used my grandmother’s favorite waffle recipe as a guide and recreated it to be low carb. The waffles have a traditional texture and a wonderfull nutty flavor, plus a creamy peanut butter syrup and fresh berries to go on top which makes Low Carb Peanut Butter & Berry Waffles a real treat to wake up to.
JIF Peanut Powder is easy to find in the Peanut Butter section at Walmart. I love how it has no added sugar or salt. It also comes in chocolate.
The batter is simple to throw together in one bowl. First add the dry ingredients which are: JIF Peanut Powder, gluten free oat flour, coconut flour, baking powder and sea salt. Whisk together.
Then add the wet ingredients: an egg, canola oil, almond milk, vanilla and stevia extract. Stir together until smooth.
Pour half the batter into a lightly greased, preheated waffle iron. Cook according to manufacturer’s instructions. Mine took about 90 seconds. Repeat steps with remaining batter.
While the waffles are cooling, you can whip up this wonderful peanut butter syrup which contains JIF Peanut Powder, natural peanut butter, sea salt, honey (1 teaspoon), hot water and stevia extract.
This recipe serves 2, so it might be nice for a romantic breakfast on Valentine’s Day which is coming up very soon!
Serve waffles with peanut butter syrup drizzled on top, fresh raspberries and fat free non-dairy whipped topping (if desired). Yummy!
