The New Atkins Made Easy: Chocolate Waffles
Staff Writer

The whole family will enjoy these sweet, tender waffles. Top each waffle with a dollop of whipped cream if you wish. Be sure to use unsweetened cocoa, not hot chocolate mix.

Ingredients

Ingredients

  • large eggs
  • 1/4  Cup  coconut-flax flour blend**
  • 2  Tablespoons  unsweetened protein powder
  • 2  Tablespoons  unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1  Teaspoon  vanilla extract
  • 2  Tablespoons  melted butter, cooled
  • 1/4  Teaspoon  salt
  • 3/4  Cups  plain unsweetened soy milk
  • 1/2  Cup  mascarpone
  • 1  Teaspoon  acceptable sweetener*
  • 1/2  Teaspoon  baking powder

Directions

Ingredients

1. In a large mixing bowl and using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites and salt on high speed until stiff peaks form. Set aside.

2. In a second large bowl, whisk egg yolks, soy milk, mascarpone, butter, sweetener, and vanilla. Add the coconut-flax flour blend, protein powder, cocoa powder, and baking powder and stir to combine.

3. Add ¼ cup beaten egg whites to the egg yolk mixture. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the egg whites and all of the flour until just combined, about 8 turns, forming a sticky mass. Fold in another ¼ cup egg whites until the mixture becomes lighter, an additional 4–5 turns. Finally, fold in the remaining egg mixture. There will be small lumps. Don’t overmix.

4. Heat a waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s instructions and mist with cooking spray. Add ½ cup batter and spread it evenly with the back of a spoon. Cover and cook 2–3 minutes or until the waffle is firm and light brown. Repeat with remaining batter and serve immediately. Or cool to room temperature, double-wrap in plastic wrap, and freeze.

Atkins Shopping Tip

Hit the salad bar at the grocery store for precut vegetables that can accompany any meal. Keep several bags of frozen veggies in the freezer; you can add these to casseroles, stir fries and omelets. Pick up pre-cooked rotisserie chicken and add to chili, stews, soups or salads. And stock up on canned foods like tuna or salmon, beans and no-salt-added tomatoes.

Atkins Cooking Tip

A crock pot cooks food at a low, steady temperature. Most crock pot recipes take about 8 hours and are fairly simple—just toss in your ingredients and let them cook during the day while you’re out.
