Strawberry, Blueberry Waffles

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free and most are dairy free. I revamped the way I eat to improve my health. Has it been working? Heck yeah! My energy and health are improving even my blood work has improved. My recipes are also good for those with allergies.

I love to read cookbooks or recipes from anywhere. It’s one of my hobbies. I was researching to improve my grain free pancakes and I came across Low Carb Yum’s blog. I read her ALMOND FLOUR PANCAKES – GLUTEN FREE recipe. I thought “why didn’t I think of that.” It suggested using sparkling water. Why hadn’t I thought of that? I mean I am a homeschooling mom and I have done a lot of science experiments in my kitchen. Word of advice doesn’t shoot vinegar baking soda rockets off in your kitchen. Don’t ask. Just suffice it to say it’s a bad idea that requires a lot of clean up. LOL. Baking soda and sparkling water cause a chemical reaction that should puff up a pancake. This was a light bulb moment. I am sure her recipe is awesome.

But instead of making her recipe I set out to make a yummy fluffy waffle. And, that’s exactly what these are. Are these low carb? No these are supposed to be a decadent treat. However, I am sure if you are watching your carbs you could eat this once in awhile. We sometimes have breakfast for dinner. The mascarpone gives this a creamy fluffy texture.

Top with fresh chopped strawberries and some blueberries and a dollop of whipped cream or coconut cream and have for breakfast or dinner on the 4th of July. If serving brunch you could also make Ham and Bacon Quiche. Use with Old Fashioned Buttermilk Syrup, Old Fashioned Mascarpone Buttermilk Syrup or Lemon Maple Syrup.

*Nutritional Facts listed below photos. Based on 5 servings.

 

1/2 cup almond flour

1/2 cup cassava flour

1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/3 monk fruit sugar

2 eggs

1/4 cup La Croix Lime or Key Lime flavor

1/4 cup almond milk

2 oz. Mascarpone cheese

1/2 cup blueberries

1/4 cup strawberries

1 1/2 tablespoon vanilla monk fruit powdered sugar

1 – 2 tablespoons coconut oil

 

In a bowl combine the almond flour, cassava flour, baking powder, baking soda and monk fruit sugar stir until well combined and set aside. Crack and add eggs to a smaller bowl. Whisk eggs until well beaten. Add flavored sparkling water that has no refined sugar and milk to the beaten eggs. Beat mascarpone in the egg mixture with a mixer. In a separate bowl combine blueberries and strawberries into powdered monk fruit sugar. Stir around until all the blueberries and strawberries are coated with powdered sugar. The coated blueberries and strawberries make it so that they will be dispersed throughout the waffles. Combine the flour mixture with the egg mixture. Once thoroughly combined fold the blueberries and strawberries into the batter. Let sit in the fridge for one hour.

Heat waffle iron.  Allow the pan to heat up. Once hot add about 1/4 cup to a 1/2 cup of waffle batter into your waffle iron. Repeat until you have no more waffle batter. Makes approximately 4 -5 waffles. These waffles rise up really well. Can store leftover in the fridge for up to three days.
