These Classic Vanilla Waffles are my favorite weekend breakfast. With a dollop of jam and some fresh berries, they beat any other waffle hands down.
But sometimes I want a regular old waffle like my mom used to make. Or like I used to get at IHOP. I love that you can taste the vanilla in these waffles.
I also love recipes that you just dump all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and give it a whirl. No sifting, folding, beating, or slowly incorporating ingredients. Just toss em in and hit the on button. This recipe is that easy.
The top is before and the bottom is after. I did scrape the sides down in the middle (after turning off the blender, obviously).
Pour onto a greased waffle iron and cook thoroughly. I coated mine with coconut oil using a silicone pastry brush. And I cooked for quite while after the ready button turned on. Alternative flours take longer to cook than wheat flour.
You want to waffle to be a deep golden color. Remove it gently. I loosened each quarter with a plastic spoon before attempting to pick the whole thing up. It is easy to tear these.
Classic Vanilla Waffles – Low Carb, Grain Gluten Sugar-Free, THM S
1 cup 2% or 4% milkfat cottage cheese
4 oz cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cup Trim Healthy Mama Baking Blend (or 1/2 cup each almond flour, coconut flour, and ground golden flax)
1/3 cup Trim Healthy Mama Gentle Sweet (or my sweetener blend)
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking powder
Preheat a waffle iron. Add all the ingredients to a blender. Blend until smooth, scraping down the sides as necessary. Grease the waffle iron. Pour about 3/4 cup of batter onto the waffle iron (less if you are not using a Belgian waffle iron). Cook until deep golden brown. Your waffle iron’s ready light may turn on before this happens. Just ignore it. Gently loosen and remove the waffle. Repeat with the remaining batter.
Serve with Fresh Strawberry Jam.
