Since the dreaded diabetes diagnoses a couple of months ago, I have been going without a lot of foods that I love. I know I can only do this for so long before I crack....here I go...I'm CRACKING! I need to find healthier versions of the foods I love!
Breakfast is a hard one for me. I always tended to lean towards sugary, carb loaded breakfasts. like sweetened cereals, waffles, muffins, etc. (Hmm...not too hard to figure out how the diabetes reared it's ugly head now, is it?...hahah)
In my search for foods that are both tasty and low in sugar/carbs, I have joined several online recipe groups. Yesterday, while reading posts in a Facebook group for diabetic recipes, I saw a picture of a waffle that made my mouth water. How I miss waffles!
The recipe looked easy and I had all ingredients on hand, so I decided to try the waffles for breakfast today. They were so good! Can I say that again....They were sooo good! I actually think that I liked them better than my "BEFORE DIABETES" waffles.
Long story...short....I no longer have to miss waffles! Hooray!
The recipe was provided by Ruby Lopez and she totally agreed to let me share it on here. So...grab your waffle maker and EAT WAFFLES WITHOUT GUILT!

Makes 3 large Belgian waffles
If you are fortunate enough to own a blender (which I am not), you can just add all the ingredients above into your blender and mix until it forms a batter. Then start at # 5 for the rest of the directions.
These can be reheated later if you don't use them all right away. Store in fridge or freezer and pop in microwave or toaster for a short time. I prefer the toaster as they get a nice crispy edge to them.

I was born in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia and spent the first half my life there. I became a mom just after I turned 20 and within a couple of years, decided to move from a small town to a bigger city to take advantage of better job opportunities. After a few great jobs, I finally settled in at a legal publishing company. 13 years later, I'm still there.
