It's the latest craze that has taken the diabetes community by storm!
Why are people with diabetes so excited about chaffles?
Well for one, those of us who love to experiment with new low-carb options now have this new blank canvas to create from. But more importantly, this latest cooking invention can also help keep your blood sugars in check straight from morning till night! That's good news!
But you don't have to be diabetic to enjoy them, why not give them a try!
4 oz./110g (1 cup equals 4 oz.) mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 tbsp. / 8g coconut flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ cup / 125ml fresh blueberries
½ cup / 125ml heavy (double) whipping cream
Blueberries, not only are they delicious and nutritious but they also have one of the highest antioxidant levels amongst all fruits, vegetables, spices and seasonings.
Blueberries are low in carbs and therefore do not have a significant impact on blood glucose levels, making them a good choice for diabetics.
Blueberries can also be frozen without reducing any of their antioxidant properties or delicate structure. So pick up those on offer in the supermarket and get them in the freezer ... now that's a good idea!
