Scandinavian waffles, low carb, sugar and gluten free

Unlike the Belgium waffles, Norwegian waffles are large, soft and often heart shaped. The traditional toppings are usually simple, a few slices of Norwegian brown cheese, a spread of sour cream and jam or just a sprinkling of sugar. Today I used a simple fruit salad and a little sweetened sour cream to go with the waffles.

Scandinavian waffles, low carb, sugar and gluten free

Waffles:

7 eggs
7 oz. (200g) plane cream cheese sugar free
2 tablespoons tagatose
1 pinch salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon homemade vanilla tagatose
½ teaspoon cardamom
½ cup (1,2 dl) heavy cream or sour cream
4 tablespoons husk fiber
1 tablespoon butter for brushing the waffle iron

Mix all the ingredients until the batter is smooth.

Preheat the waffle iron. Use a brush, and grease the iron before scooping in approximately 1/6 of the batter. Press down the waffle iron so the batter is pressed out. The time the waffles need to cook depends on the heat of the waffle iron; check how it looks after 30 seconds. It should be golden and lightly browned. Let the waffles steam of on a wire rack.

Fruit salad:

1 cup (2,5 dl) strawberries, sliced
1 cup (2,5 dl) blueberries
1 cup (2,5 dl) sweet cherries, pits removed
1 cup (2,5 dl) raspberries
1 cup (2,5 dl) diced peach
½ lime, zest and juice
1 tablespoon vanilla tagatose

Stir in the tagatose in the lime juice and zest until it dissolves. Toss the fruit and berries in the lime-vanilla marinade.

½ cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla tagatose

Stir the sour cream with the vanilla tagatose until smooth.

Serve the waffles together with the sour cream and fruit salad.Scandinavian waffles, low carb, sugar and gluten free
