Re-posting from 2012.... A healthy, low carb, sugar free Waffle and Pancake Mix

Low Carb Waffles 2012

If you follow me on Twitter, you know I have 'waffles' on the brain this morning.  I went back in my recipes to find my waffle and pancake mix, and was surprised to see I posted it way back in 2012.  That doesn't seem like very long ago until you realize, that was 3 years ago already! 

I need to mix up another batch of this myself so I thought I'd re-post it - and I am adding some links to Amazon for some of the food ingredients in it.  You don't have to use the brands I do...  I know people use many different brands of whey protein powder.  The only kind our family uses is the Nature's Best Isopure brand.  I assume other brands will work as well, but this is the only kind we use (zero carbs and zero sugar) and I know how it works in our recipes. Another thing I want to mention is that I really love Ideal Sweetener - and I link to it below as I buy mine from Amazon because I can't find it locally.  But they raised their prices in the last few weeks and I'm SO not happy about that.  It's still a pretty affordable option compared to some brands of sweeteners, but I'm still bummed. As they've gotten more popular, they seem to be raising their prices to be more competitive with similar products.  I plan on stocking up this morning with another order before it goes up again.  (But... I wish I would have ordered a month ago before they raised it.)

The pictures on this post are pretty bad...  I laughed at them when I saw them, but I've said before - this isn't a foodie 'photo' blog.  It's a website I started almost 10 years ago for my own personal use that grew a life of it's own.  These pictures are not doing the recipe justice, but sometimes I'm just too lazy to take new ones.  *grin*

Waffle and Pancake Mix

2 c finely ground almonds or Almond Flour
1/2 c Oat Bran
1 c Creamy Vanilla Protein Powder
2 T wheat bran flakes
2 T wheat germ
2 T Vital Wheat Gluten w/ Vitamin C
2 1/2 T baking powder
1 1/2 t salt

Blend ingredients in a food processor with a S blade.  Pulse a couple times until well blended.  Store in a Ziploc or other air tight container in the refrigerator or freezer.  Makes about 4 cups.  


Use 1 cup of your dry almond waffle mix
2 t sweetener of your choice (like Ideal No Calorie Sweetener)
1/2 c half and half
1 egg beat with 1/4 c oil

Stir all together in a bowl while preheating your waffle iron.  Only stir until everything is moist, do not over stir.  Bake according to your waffle iron directions.  Serve with butter and syrup or cinnamon, splenda, whipped cream, or whatever you wish!  This is going to average about 6 carbs per waffle.

Mix just until blended
