One important thing that I think needs to be pointed out. If you want them to look like real waffles (without the holes) you have to let them cook a bit then very very gently add more batter to the exposed areas. Be sure to not add excessively or you will have on heck of a mess on your hands to clean up.
Other important notation is that precooking these and freezing is not the best of ideas, due to the waffles falling and looking more like deflated balloons.
Both my son and husband had 2nds so I am giving this one a 5 STAR! Recipe is easy to prep- I used almond flour but not flax. I also added cinnamin and nutmeg to enhance the flavor. Important note- using a belgian waffle maker, I let the batter (2/3 c per waffle) rise on the griddle without flipping it over until the buzzer went, then slowly pressed down and flipped the griddle for another buzzer. Result got both volumn and an extra crispy that really makes it have the belgian waffle look and feel. Otherwise, it seems a tad too souffle-ish. Served it with my homemade strawberry/rhubarb sugar-free spread.
YUM, YUM, this made a nice breakfast but it's something you could have before bedtime also as they are so light and airy. I don't have a belgian waffle maker so my plain one just had to do and i think it did good. I used two eggs and halved the other ingredients my egg are my own chickens eggs and are huge so two was ample. and my protein powder was vanilla. I think I will make a big batch the next time as my Grand children will love them when they stop over. I served them with homemade yogurt and frozen strawberries.
