I named this recipe “Super Waffles” because these waffles are super high in protein, super high in fiber, and super cheap to make. Oh, and they are also super delicious!
I love it when I’m able to use less expensive wheat-free ingredients, and I have a new favorite: oat fiber. Oat fiber, not to be confused with oat flour, is the fiber portion of the oat, leaving out the glycemic-raising portion. Oat fiber has ZERO calories. The only nutrition information on the label is 3 carb grams and 3 fiber grams per tablespoon. That means zero net carbs! And oat fiber is very inexpensive. I buy mine from Netrition for $3.29/lb*.
Combined with golden flaxseed meal and eggs (two other inexpensive ingredients), each waffle boasts 11 g protein, 9 g fiber and zero net carbs. This breakfast will not make you sleepy or hungry in a few hours like grain-filled, sugar-filled waffles would. What a great start to your day! The waffles also freeze great, making them a quick and easy breakfast on hurried mornings…just toast and serve.
To make the syrup, I simply mixed a little sugar-free jelly with some water and warmed it up in the microwave.
*Netrition has a flat $4.95 shipping fee. They also have great prices on golden flaxseed meal, coconut flour, erythritol, stevia glycerite and other items. If you order through my links I make a small commission, which helps support this site. But I recommend these products and Netrition whether you order through my links or not.
Delicious high protein, high fiber, zero carb waffles. Gluten-free, wheat-free, grain-free, no carb.
- 1 cup oat fiber (NOT oat flour)
- 1 cup golden flaxseed meal
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon

Preheat waffle maker.
Mix dry ingredients together in a bowl.
In another bowl beat the eggs. Add milk, vanilla and stevia and mix together.
Mix wet and dry ingredients together until well blended. Let sit for a few minutes. Pour onto waffle maker, covering the entire surface (these will not spread). Cook through (my waffle maker takes about 3 minutes).
