Breakfast Ideas - Phase 1 - White bean waffles

View Full Version : White bean waffles

Inspired by the black bean brownie recipe, I made the following...

1 can of white beans (Cannellini - rinsed)
3 eggs (medium)
2 Tbls of Splenda (to taste)
1 Tbl of Vanilla
1 tsp of Almond Extract
2-3 Tbls of Flax Seed*
1/4 cup of pecans/ walnuts*
1/4 cup fat free half-half
1 tsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp of baking soda
1 tsp of Cinnamon
1 tsp of Nutmeg

Place all ingredients into a food processor/ blender. Spray waffle iron with vegetable spray. These cook in my waffle iron in four minutes. These may not be low in calories, yet they are pretty high in protein and fiber.
* These might be optional ingredients. However I like their nuttiness.

Makes eight (8) 4"x4" waffles.
The nutritional info per serving (1 waffle) is as follows -
Calories 112
Protein 7g
Fiber 4g
Total fat 5g

Would this work as pancake batter too?

In answer to my own question, yes. ;) Even my kids (1 & 4) loved em!

Could you use Milk or soy milk? Me and Corn Syrup are Not Friends FF half and half makes me dump.

KO, I'm assuming you are not on Phase I so give it a try with milk or soy milk. Actually I'd try condensed ff milk which would be the same texture as the ff half and half.

Forgive me, I am Australian and don't know what "half and half" means?

Half & half is a dairy product that is frequently used here as a coffee creamer, as well as in recipes. I believe it is made of half heavy cream and half whole milk.

Thank you. I don't think we have that here, I suppose some low fat 12% sour cream, or low fat thickened cream, could work too?

Is half and half limited on South Beach, have searched my eBook but can't find anything.

Randomly looking for yummy stuff has anyone ever made this and baked it in the oven?
