I love making waffles. For me they’re one of the best Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) comfort foods. They’re really easy to make and pretty much always come out right.

These waffles are so fluffy they reminded me a little bit of angel food cake. I recently purchased a Belgian waffle maker and that does make for fluffier waffles. This recipe is a variation of my original waffle recipe from a few years ago, where I used a smaller, regular waffle maker. That works fine too, but the waffles might not be as light.

I love this waffle maker because it has a cermaic non-stick surface instead of teflon. I didn’t use any oil on the grill at all and they slid right out.




Berries is my favorite waffle topping, but you can get creative!
