Facts about me:

- My personality is generally bubbly and optimistic.
- Breakfast food might just be my favorite cuisine.
- I'm basically Leslie Knope! (Warning: this post is littered with Parks & Rec references.)
Eating low-carb can be hard, especially because grainy foods with a crunchy texture are often off-limits. That is, unless you're creative!
Don't get me wrong. The Ron Swanson in me loves ALL the bacon and eggs. But every now and then, I crave a big-ole plate of crisp, fluffy waffles. I've tried a few different low-carb friendly versions, but I love this recipe because...
- It's easy.
- There are few ingredients.
- It's packed with protein to power your morning!
In this post, I shared a bit about why I love Quest Protein. It's super versatile and bakes well, so I chose to use their peanut butter flavor in these waffles. You could also experiment with using other flavors - so many possibilities. All other ingredients in this recipe are household staples, so get your blender and waffle iron ready and let's get cooking!
- 1 cup water
- 2 cups Quest Protein (I used the peanut butter flavor, but vanilla or cinnamon would also work)
- 4 tsp baking powder
- 4 eggs
- salt, to taste
- Heat waffle iron (here's the one I use)
- Mix all ingredients in a blender until smooth (I love this one because it's dishwasher safe)
- Spray waffle iron with cooking spray and pour batter into iron to fill all squares. Be sure not to overfill.
- Cook until golden brown.
Makes about 12 square waffles. I usually make them in a large batch, freeze them, and toast them when I'm on-the-go. The next time you're craving a visit to JJ's Diner, try these instead!
