Low Carb Cookies and Cream Chocolate Waffles
Similar to a chaffle, but without the cheese, this low carb cookies and cream chocolate waffle is quick, easy and delicious!
Calorie counting, being intentional with your macros depending on your goals, and portion control, makes it possible to eat delicious food and not feel deprived.
That’s why I love experimenting with delicious food like waffles, while reducing the calories, and only making enough for one meal.
I wanted to make a cookies and cream chaffle (a cheese-waffle), because I’ve seen other bloggers create one and it looked so good! But, since I made this without cheese I just couldn’t call it that.
Instead, I definitely start with the eggs to have a high protein breakfast. But then, I added a bit of self rising flour, and baking powder (I was having trouble getting a rise out of the flour alone).
To sweeten up the low carb chocolate waffle, and to keep it low calorie and low carb, I used the Monk Sugar (a zero calorie sweetener you can get at Costco or Amazon).
Then, to make the chocolate waffle actually have chocolate, I used cocoa powder! Cocoa powder is very low in calories (only 10 calories per tablespoon of cocoa powder), and high in flavor! You only need 1 tablespoon.
Depending on the size of your waffles (I used the MINI DASH!), you might get 3-4 chocolate waffles. But since you may get more or less, I caclulated the calories and macros for the entire recipe. So, no matter how many waffles you get, you’ll have: 147 calories, 14 grams protein, 8 grams carbs, and 6 grams fat are for the ENTIRE recipe!!
Here’s how I made this chocolate waffle recipe:
- 1 egg
- 1/4 c egg whites
- 1 tablespoon self-rising flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tablespoon monk sugar (or zero calorie sugar)
- 1 tablespoon cocoa
Whisk all ingredients together. Pour over hot waffle iron, and cook until done!
Add 1 tablespoon whipped cream (the kind in the can) to make it a sandwich, or put it on top!
