Almond Flour Waffles

They say, breakfast is the most important meal of the day and I could not agree more. I love waffles, but I find my blood sugar to be much harder to manage when I eat super carb-heavy foods first thing in the morning. I have perfected this almond flour recipe over the past few months, so I can enjoy a variation of my fav breakfast food, without it (1) tasting like cardboard and (2) butchering my diabetes management.

The Ingredients

  • 2 cups almond flour

  • 1 tbs baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1 cup heavy cream

  • 3 eggs

  • 2 tbs cinnamon

  • 2 tsp nutmeg

  • 2 tbs vanilla

  • Waffle iron (obvz)

Something to note: Almond flour taste like...well, like powdered almonds. It also soaks up more liquid and masks other flavors, unlike all-purpose flour. When adding spices to any almond flour recipe, I have found more is better. When you think you have added enough, add a dash more. So, while I have noted recommended measurements for cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla, do what feels right. Sometimes I add more or less depending on how I am feeling (and how much is left in the spice jar).

The Process

It is super easy:

  • Preheat waffle iron

  • Spray waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray

  • Mix all ingredients, except heavy cream

  • Add heavy cream to desired consistency

  • Pour into waffle iron and cook to desired crispiness

  • Top with your favorite accompaniments (syrup, yogurt, fruit, icecream... go wild!) and enjoy!
