Kristie's tips!

Whey protein isolate has casein and lactose removed and is not the same as whey protein, which can be highly insulinogenic. Please check the ingredients on whey protein isolate to make sure there are no added sweeteners. Some good zero carb brands include Isopure, Jay Robb, or Hoosier Farms.

Oat fiber is the pure insoluble fiber from the outer husk of the oat. Because it is not digestible, it does not impact blood glucose. Milder tasting brands that are gluten free are often preferable and include Trim Healthy Mama or LifeSource.

Besides breakfast, these waffles are great for brunch, lunch or dinner. Try serving them with pulled pork, pork belly, beef brisket, or even as a side with a hearty soup.

Leftovers can be stored for up to four days. These also freeze well and can be warmed in a toaster, warm skillet, or in the oven at 350 degrees.

    Where do you get corn extract? I've never heard of it. These would be wonderful; how much corn flavour does the extract provide?

    This looks incredibly yummy...is there any chance that I could use egg white powder for the whey isolate?..I just happened to have it in the pantry and wonder if it 'could' be a suitable 'sub'?! Thanks for any insight!

    Can you use inulin instead of oat fibre?

    Miriam, you can look on Amazon. There are several brand options.

    Egg white protein powder can be a viable option in most cases. This specific recipe has not been tested with it though.

    No, inulin does not give the same properties as oat fiber. It's well worth getting oat fiber. Corn extract gives corn flavor to cornbread.

    I made these tonight, however I did make a few subs. I didn't have bacon, but had bacon grease, so I used that instead of coconut oil. I had ghee handy (and the butter was not), so I used that. I didn't have corn extract, so I just omitted any flavoring. They tasted good, though suprisingly not as "bacony" as I thought. They are quite crispy/crumbly. A touch of xanthan gum or a tablespoon of gelatin might result in a less crumbly waffle. A fair quantity of fat cooked out (and went onto the counter). Although I think all the fat gives it a nice crisp surface, I will on a future batch cut down the fat by several tablespoons. I look forward to leftovers for breakfast: recrisped in the waffle iron, topped with poached eggs.

    Corn extract is pricey, but it surely helps the flavor of anything you want to taste cornbready. I bought the Amoretti brand when Amazon had it on sale. A little goes a long way. 1/8 tsp should do it.

    Hey folks, I like the idea of the waffles, I am allergic to any and all coconut products, what subs can I make in lieu of coconut flour?

    There isn't a great substitute for the coconut flour since the recipe already includes the oat fiber.
