I don’t know about you, but I spend a lot of time alone in my kitchen.
Maybe a little bit too much time. It occurred to me today, that everyone might not give all their appliances personalities like I do. For instance, my oven is the benevolent leader of the kitchen. And the fridge is a little too big for his britches. That’s normal, right?
My least favorite member of the kitchen crew is the waffle iron.
That guy is a real jerk. He gets overheated all the time and his timer hasn’t worked in ages. But I got him out of exile today to make these low carb banana walnut waffles. And I’m so glad that I did! The waffles turned out beautifully. They don’t actually have any banana in them, I used banana extract instead. The waffle batter is a mixture of cream cheese, eggs and almond flour. And one large Belgian waffle has just 9g net carbs. (But that’s actually an enormous portion, so I’d advise cutting the recipe in half for one serving.)
All in all, I think these waffles were well worth a visit from my arch nemesis, old Waffley McIrons.
