I too bought the WalMart $10.00 waffle iron, but this last batch I used my muffin top pans and I think I have the perfect hamburger bun!!

I'm still going to make the "waffle" ones but the muffin top pan does a great job.

Thanks so very much for this recipe

pensgirl.....

There's 17 carbs in the whole recipe, so divide that up by how ever many waffles you get.

I got 18 round waffles from the recipe, so 1 carb per waffle.
I found that if I put only 1 large tablespoon of batter on the waffle maker center, then it spreads out perfectly to make a round waffle instead of the square. Less is better if you're trying to get a circle waffle!

Gonna give these a try this weekend...Just a thought do you think by omitting the spices you could make doughnut holes by dropping the batter in to hot oil.....Rolling in splenda and sugar?

Sherrielee, about how long did you cook your bread in the waffle maker? Do you just keep checking it until it is brown or what?

I just cook them until the green light goes on the waffle maker and says there done. Nothing special, just like any old high carb waffle. I let the machine do the work.

Once we cook them in the waffle maker we freeze them and toast them as needed for sandwiches. It makes it easier so we only have to make them once a week to have all week.

They are really nice when they are warm out of the toaster, just toast them on the lightest setting on your toaster!!

Be the way, these make a great grilled cheese!
And they make a quick pizza, just put on your favorite topping and pop in the broiler to melt the cheese.

Starymist...they should be fine for induction, just keep in mind how much cheese you are allowed and eat accordingly.

I need help. I just tried to make these and it was a disaster. First of all I could not find whole buttermilk. I went to 6 different grocery store today and all they had was Cultured Fat Free Buttermilk...Is this OK? It has 3.5 carbs for 1/4 cup.

Second, I only have the Splenda packets and not the pour Splenda. How many packets should I have used? 3 packets or 10-12 packets to make 3 tsp?

I used placed a Tablespoon full in the wafflemaker and they came out extremely small.

Please Help!

linda21046....I have had to use the fat free when our store was out of the regular buttermilk. Walmart Grocery section is good about always having the full fat buttermilk, and yes it does taste better and make fluffier waffles.

The packet Splenda should be okay. You may just have to put a couple of tablespoons in to get the right size for a bun, I put a little more than a tablespoon and they still make 18 full round waffles.

Be sure you use the atkins bake mix in the recipe, it's what binds the waffles and make them puff better.

For Tina and everyone...

where did I get this sherrielee perhaps? Not sure....

This is a knock off of Atkins bake mix. Cheaper, and tastes about the same.

BAKE MIX
1 C soy flour
2 C soy protein isolate
2 TBL baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 TBL granular Splenda

Mix well and then sift together. I store mine in the refrigerator and use in the same proportions as any recipe calling for low carb bake mix. I usually use the bake mix as a slight addition in other recipes 3 carbs per 1/2 C

Really Good

Ok mine are cooking right now. I went out this weekend and bought that waffle iron from Walmart, good price at $9.95! Anyway, I made the first batch savory and experimented with cayene powder and grated sharp cheader cheese. Yum.

I went ahead and made a second batch omitting the spices adding sf vanilla syrup and stevia sweetner. They are cooking ritght now.

For the bake mix issue, someone here on the boards posted another variation not using soy and here is the recpie:

1 C Almond flour 14 g
1 C Vital Wheat Gluten 24g
1 C Plain whey protein powder 6g
4 pkts splenda 3.2 g
2 T baking powder 6g
1/2 t baking soda 0g
1/2 t salt

Mix all together and store in a zip lock bag in the fridge. When a recpie calls for bake mix, just measure according to the recpie.

This is what I used today and I say they turned out perfect!

Well, it sounds like I might have messed up.

These smelled great, looked great, tasted OK (not crazy about soy), but the consistancy wasn't what I expected. I found the RR (rev rolls) to be similiar to the outside of a cream puff consistancy, and these seem similiar but perhaps heavier(more dense). I also used the muffin top pan and baked, maybe the dual sided heating of the waffle pan changes the way it 'feels' when chewed. I tried it with a bit of chicken salad, and found that the foods did not blend when chewed (sorry if this is gross).

I've made a batch of non-soy bake mix but before I try another batch, wanted to ask if this is the sort of consistancy you have too. I wish I could describe it better.

I'm goofy when it comes to things like this, for example, I hate mushrooms for no other reason but the way they 'feel' when I chew them.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions

Paulinex, I use more almond flour and less vital wheat gluten and protein powder. That way the baked goods are not as dry and chewey. The formula I use is 2 cups of almond flour, 1/2 cup each of protein powder and vital wheat gluten. Try this formula and see if it makes a difference for you. I also have made sherrilee's buns with 1/4 cup almond flour, 2 TBL oat flour and 2 TBL vital wheat gluten and they were excellent when baked in both the waffle iron and muffin top pan. I can't eat soy, but appreciate the recipes such as this one that can be altered a little and which still turn out excellent.

thx a ton smaller!I'll give your recipe a try.

I've been LC'ing for almost a year without any bread-like product, and have long since even yearned for one.

Probably been a blessing I'm so particular.

I went to Target today to get a waffle maker.... I was sucked in by all the rave reviews!!!! Great recipe! My SO came home from work tonight while I was making them and sort of rolled his eyes. Then he asked to taste them....mikey likes 'em, too!!!
Got a 9.99 belgium waffle maker, so I only got 12 from the recipe. Still only 1.5 carbs per waffle. Thanx for sharing!

I also ran out today and bought a waffle maker! sherrielee should get a part of all these wafflemaker profits! I first made the original recipe, then added cheese and onion flakes. After making them I toasted one and spread it with the chive cream cheese. it was almost like the morning bagel I vaguely remember from 3 years ago! I think these have huge possibilites!

OK, I guess I have to try these, but where do I find the mix stuff (protein powder, wheat gluten) etc.

Are these in a health food store?
