Mom's Cream Cheese Waffles

Mother's Day is a great event in our home, and traditionally it is a chance to make breakfast for Mom.
In our home, Mom loves waffles.  But changing to a low carbohydrate diet put a damper on the waffles for a while, until my sweet wife found and perfected the following recipe. (She adapted this recipe from Jennifer Eloff's Cream Cheese Bran Waffle recipe found in her book, Splendid Low Carbing for Life Vol 1.) These waffles are amazing! They are now lovingly referred to in our home as "Mom's Cream Cheese Waffles."
Breakfast for Mother's Day in our home consisted of Mom's Cream Cheese Waffles, freshly grilled thick slice bacon and strawberry flavored whipped cream to top off the waffles and was easily prepared by my 11 year old daughter.  A perfect low carb Mother's Day meal. Enjoy!
