The first time I attempted Keto was in November 2018. I expected quick, rapid, immediate results and when that didn’t happen, I quickly said I was done and it wasn’t for me. There is only so much medication can do for you as a type 2 diabetic and unless you are willing to change your lifestyle, you are in for a lifetime of insulin injections and waiting for a miracle. I chose to be a bit more proactive. While weight loss is high on my list of reasons for jumping back on the Keto train, using it to control my Diabetes is number 1.
My new mission in life is to make this lifestyle just that- a lifestyle…not a quick fix and to do that, I am ketofying favorite foods so this isn’t deprivation. When I stopped looking at Keto as a list of things I COULDN’T have and started looking at as a way to get creative, life got much better!
And so these waffles were born, borrowing ingredients from a few recipes, this one is my favorite.
Keto Strawberry Waffles
2 eggs, 2 egg whites, 4 oz ROOM TEMP cream cheese, 2 Tbsp Splenda, 2Tbsp coconut flour, 2 Tbsp almond flour, 2 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 heaping Tbsp sugar free strawberry jam
Using a stand mixer, blend all until well blended and then get those waffles cooking! I use a 1/3 cup per waffle and it makes the perfect size.
