Low Carb Gingerbread Waffles

Gingerbread WafflesGingerbread WaffleSo the other day I made  a half recipe of Gingerbread and as you can see from the picture it didn’t turn out so well as I under-cooked it. Well, when life gives you lemons I say make lemonade.  The first thing I did was scoop out the center, drown it in heavy cream and ate it as kind of a gingerbread pudding.  Gads, it was really good.

Gingerbread WaffleGingerbread WaffleI’m thinking to myself that maybe, with a few minor alterations to the original recipe, I could make a waffle batter out it.  Well, well, it worked just beautifully.  A few crunchy toasted pecans, tons of butter, some Sugar-Free Maple Syrup and I have to say these gingerbread waffles are terrific.  Just eat for the number of people in your family and freeze the rest for another time.  They are not super crispy since there is no white flour in them but they are quite tender and with the addition of toasted nuts you get that crunch you may be looking for.  I have put this recipe under the Entrées Category and seriously they can be eaten for breakfast and also be used as a dessert with whipped cream.  If you have babies break into 4 pieces, give them a dry one, and let ’em make a mess.

As I am a Type II diabetic, all recipes on this website are low carb and diabetic friendly.

Notes
  1. I added toasted pecans. You could add low carb fruit but I think the flavor of the waffle might over power any fruit you may use.
  2. If you compare this to an average 6" waffle the carb count is about one third.
