Healthy breakfast or sweet treat recipe for low-carb waffles – top with caramelised bananas and strawberries

3 egg whites, or 2 egg whites plus 1 whole egg
2 tbsp. almond flour
2 tbsp milk of choice (I used unsweetened almond milk)
1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 tbsp xylitol (or stevia)

3 tsp. xylitol
1 banana cut into slices
3 strawberries – cut into slices
Macadamia nut butter

How to
Whip 2 of the egg whites to stiff peaks. You can either use a hand mixer, an egg beater, or a whisk if you want a workout.

Once you have stiff peaks, stir in the almond flour, milk of choice, baking powder, xylitol, and either 1 whole egg or another egg white. Heat up your waffle iron to the highest temperature, and grease or spray it with nonstick olive oil / coconut oil spray.

Pour in the batter (You can do it in two batches if you need to.), and cook in the waffle iron until browned, about 3-4 minutes. Remove from waffle iron using a spatula and allow to cool a little before adding toppings.

Place xylitol in a heated pan and allow to melt. Add sliced bananas and cook on medium heat until xylitol starts to caramelize over bananas. Once slightly browned, remove from heat.
