I saw a recipe for Avocado chips on the internet that looked really good. They mixed avocado and cheese, then baked them flat on a cookie sheet. I then wondered what would happen if I added an egg, and cooked it like a pancake. It took a while and was hard to flip, so out comes my trusty waffle iron, that I use constantly for my low carb/keto waffles. The next time I made the avocado batter, I was also making a keto waffle, and decided to cook the avocado batter by waffle iron and I loved the change. I went thru several iterations of the recipe, adding water to thin the batter, which made it stick to the iron! I do not recommend this revision! Finally came up with a repeatable recipe yielding the same results!
100 grams ripe avocado
1 oz cheese
Mix ingredients, Spray waffle iron with non stick, or your favorite healthy oil in a spray bottle. Cook in waffle iron until golden brown and enjoy. I have make this the night before and eaten it for lunch at work the next day. Feel free to adjust the recipe to get the macros you need for your meal.
What is a Brofffel you ask? A broccoli waffle! We love waffles and for years I have made a low carb high protein breakfast waffle. I decided it was time to buy a new waffle maker when my waffles started sticking so bad they were not worth removing from the maker. I did some research and found Oster makes a titanium ceramic coating that is much healthier and requires no oil to release the waffle! I purchased a new one and it is all that and a perfect waffle! I use a wooden bbq skewer to help the waffle release. I decided I wanted a healthy waffle, not just for breakfast, so the broccoli waffle was born! You can also substitute cauliflower or any of your other favorite veggies. Let me know how yours turns out!
1 c “riced” broccoli (chopped fine in food processor, or grated)
1/2 c egg beaters or 2 eggs
1/2 c greek yogurt, I used fat free
1/3 c Carbquik – low carb bake mix,(or you can use 1/3c any bake mix, or 1/3c flour +1/4t baking soda)
1/2-1 oz cheddar cheese, to taste
Cajun spice or other spices to taste
Mix all ingredients, cook in waffle maker until golden brown. I have served the broffle with chicken strips for a new version of chicken and waffles, as well as with a spicy pulled pork topping, that was quite amazing!
