Loving the Bite: Almond Flour Waffles with Cottage Cheese and Berries
Love waffles but want to lose the spare tire? Here’s a recipe you can love and that will love you back.
Make almond flour waffles (there’s many recipes out there….a great recipe and site: http://www.elanaspantry.com/forums/topic/my-favorite-almond-flour-waffles ). Top 1 medium waffle with ½ cup cottage cheese, 1 Tbsp ground flaxseeds or Chia seeds and 1 cup berries (for sweeter topping mix 3 drops Stevia (1/2 teaspoon powdered) with berries, then place on top of cottage cheese).
Why Almond Flour? Using almond flour to make baked goods give you waffles that are essentially eggs and nuts rather than a grain-based waffle. Especially compared to refined grains (white flour waffles), and even whole-wheat flour, almonds are higher in protein, heart-healthy fats, and many other nutrients. For those who are trying to lose weight, almonds don’t spike blood sugars or insulin output (which can lead to fat-storage).
