As you know, I’ve been doing the low carb thang for a bit, just trying to melt off some of those stubborn pounds that won’t budge. It hasn’t been easy, but I have seen results, so I’ve been pushing myself to go just a tad farther. The other day I was really missing yummy breakfast foods (other than eggs and sausage) so I consulted Pinterest and found this:
A low carb waffle?! Uh, let’s do this!Here’s what you need: 1 scoop or 1 packet Jay Robb Vanilla Whey Protein
1 egg white
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp water
Dash of cinnamon
Sprinkle of Stevia (or Splenda)
All you have to do is preheat your waffle iron, mix everything together, and pour in the batter.
A few minutes later, you have this:
It was…okay. I could REALLY taste the egg white and it was sort of spongy. I spread some peanut butter on top because I needed something to cover up the taste. I actually only ate half of it. It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be but it definitely wasn’t a Waffle House waffle.
Have you ever tried this recipe (or something like it) before? Did you have different results?
I’m always looking for easy and fun recipes on Pinterest (keyword: easy). Basically if a recipe has less than 5 ingredients and 5 steps, I’m totally on board. And, thankfully, Pinterest delivered!
Here’s what you need:
~1 can Pillsbury biscuits
~a waffle iron
First, plug in your waffle iron to pre-heat. Then, pop open the can of biscuits (and try not to scream in terror like I did when the can literally pops) and separate the biscuits. Split the biscuits in the middle, but leave a little “biscuit hinge” like so (It’ll be a lot easier to close up the biscuits and not have all of the stuffing’s fall out):
Sprinkle your cheese and pepperoni (I also put a dash of oregano and garlic powder in there, just so it wouldn’t be so bland). After you’ve place your fixin’s, close up the biscuit and place in your pre-heated waffle iron.
A minute (or so) later, your waffle pizza will be ready to eat!
These things were SOOO tasty! Huff the Hubs said, “Uh, these need to be in the permanent dinner rotation!” Homeboy ate FOUR (and a half)! These would be great for a kid’s sleepover or movie night with the family!
