Belgian Waffles plus a Sugar Free Version of Belgian Waffles



This week I took my favorite waffle recipe and played with a bit to make it sugar free and lower carb.   I'm not currently following any low carb or sugar free plan but when you know what white sugars and flours to do your body, it's hard to eat them - especially when you know you can make a few substitutions and eat a yummy, healthier version.

You will need a waffle maker to make waffles.  You could still mix the batter and then cook a pancake out of it but it won't be the same.  Topped with whipped cream and strawberries, a light dusting of powdered sugar, or even just good old butter and syrup - they are a a great breakfast, dessert or comfort food.

I will post the original version and the lower carb version together.


1 1/2 c flour  (or 1 c Now - Gluten Flour  and 1/2 c coconut flour)
1 t salt
1/2 t baking soda
2/3 c sugar  (or 2/3 c Xylitol)
2 T oil
1/2 c heavy cream
1 c milk  (or 1 c unsweetened almond milk)
1 T vinegar, white
1 t vanilla
1 egg

Mix all just until smooth.  Do not overbeat.  Heat your iron and pour into the slots.  Cook per instructions for your iron.  Serve with your favorite syrup (my sugar free version here) or top with powdered sugar, whipped cream and strawberries, chocolate chips or anything you wish!
