Hello friends, and welcome new followers! How is the first week of 2018 going for everyone? If you’re new to low-carb life, I hope that you’re getting past those carb cravings and avoiding the dreaded Low Carb Flu (if not, here’s a link that might help)!
I remember missing bread-like foods when I was first getting started, so I thought that today might be a good time to share this recipe. These waffles are simple to make. They freeze well and you can thaw them quickly in the toaster. Start to finish, you can have a batch of these finished in 30 minutes! Add 2 teaspoons of vanilla and your favorite low carb sweetener for a sweet waffle, or a half cup of your favorite shredded cheese and a pinch of dried herbs for a more savory snack!
