I apologize in advance for my poor photography.  Times like these I wish I was a food stylist.  I still need to figure out how to use more pictures but I think what I have will do for now!

  • I know ricotta cheese and eggs making a good waffles seems a bit crazy.  I agree, I had no idea how this would work but I was pleasantly surprised!  I found this recipe online at http://www.fatsecret.com/. My husband loves waffles and needless to say since going grain and sugar-free, he has done without for a while! I made modifications to the original recipe to include full fat ricotta and stevia.  Now I realize that everyone may not have Kal Stevia yet (order it or get it as soon as possible).  I do like using fresh nutmeg because it taste so much better and a little “nut” of nutmeg will last you a while! If you don’t have a waffle iron, just use the batter as you would for pancakes.  The texture of both the waffles and pancakes are light and fluffy. 
 
I recommend making a few batches.  Once cooled, place in ziplock bag and store in refrigerator for 3-5 days or freeze for a few weeks or longer.  These would make a great weekend breakfast or if you make enough in advance, a great, quick, week day breakfast you can just pop in the toaster.  Use them just like you would conventional frozen waffles.  When re-toasting, stay beside toaster because they will toast quickly.

 
You can skip the sweet route and eat them like my husband does, using the waffles as “bread” and putting fried eggs and mayo on it to make an egg sandwich!  The key is to be creative.  

 

 

Nutritional Value:

 
2 waffles contain Less than 3 carbs and 19 grams of protein! Compared to 2 Blueberry Eggo waffles with 30 grams of carbohydrate and 4 grams of protein!  Now you know why you are starving right after eating your Eggos!  I say” Let Go the Eggo!”
 
 
  • Ricotta Waffles/Pancakes

Serves 2 (each serving 3 waffles)
Total time to prepare: less than 10 minutes for waffles
 
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg 
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 6 servings Kal Stevia (or to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
 
4 eggs, 1/2 cup ricotta, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, 1/4 tsp Stevia
  •  
  •  Directions

  • Preheat waffle iron. If no waffle iron is available, recipe can also be used for fluffy pancakes.
  • Beat eggs with electric mixer on high for 1 minute to make them light and fluffy.
  • Add all other ingredients (nutmeg is optional). Beat until smooth, about 30 seconds.  Batter will be very runny.
  • Spray waffle maker (top and bottom) with cooking spray.  Use a little more between 1/3 and 1/2 cup batter to make each waffle. Make sure the bottom of waffle iron is completely covered to eliminate holes in your waffles. Cook about 3 minutes (may vary with different waffle irons).  Carefully remove with fork.
 
Runny batter is good!
Finished Product ; -)
 
 
 
Serve with eggs or meat of your choice or let them stand alone. Enjoy with your morning cup of coffee sweetened with stevia and a bit of heavy cream!  With a breakfast like this, there is no way you can have a bad day! (If it were only that simple). 
 
Serve with Blueberry Syrup

    Jessica, every brand of stevia is different. I use Kal Brand which is 100% stevia and it is very strong. Add a little and taste. If you want sweeter waffles, add more. The quantity is dependent on the brand and your taste buds! Hope this helps!

    I made these this morning. I made a double batch and got 8 waffles. When mixing the batter I was a bit sceptical, because the ricotta was not completely smooth (there were still some larger pieces), but this didn't matter once the waffles were cooked and on the plate. I didn't tell my sister what was in them and she was amazed when I told her basically just egg and ricotta cheese! Great recipe – thanks for sharing!!

    Fantastic!

    I did the normal….then I did bread~!
    Omitted the sweetness, added onion powder and garlic with some chives…this will be excellent toasted up with some sliced tomatoes and bacon:)
    Thank you!
