Ingredients

Red Velvet Waffles:

Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 2 tbs Neufchâtel Cream Cheese (softened)
  • 2 tbs Plain, Nonfat Greek Yogurt
  • 2 packets Natural Sweetener

Instructions

For the Roasted Beet Puree:

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Rinse and gently scrub 2 medium beets, then individually wrap them in foil.
  • Place the beets on a jelly roll pan and bake for 1 hour, or until a fork pierces through the center of the beets with ease. Carefully unwrap the beets and let cool for 30 minutes.
  • Scrape off the beet skins (they should peel off easily) and chop into chunks. Add the beet chunks to a food processor and purée until completely smooth.

For the Waffles:

  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the beet puree, eggs, Truvia, vanilla extract and butter flavor.
  • Whisk in the coconut flour, then the brown rice protein powder, then the baking powder.  Last, whisk in the vinegar.
  • Heat your rotating waffle iron to medium heat and spray with cooking spray.
  • When the iron is hot, scoop half of the batter onto the iron and spread out slightly. Cook for 1 minute, rotate the iron, then cook for 1 minute on the opposite side. Rotate the iron back upright and carefully remove the waffle (the waffles are slightly delicate, so it's easiest to take out ¼ of the waffle at a time using a large fork on either side to bring it out).
  • Spray the waffle iron with cooking spray and cook the next waffle.

For the Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the Neufchâtel, yogurt and Truvia. Scoop into a piping bag and drizzle over the waffles.  Serve with mini dark chocolate chips, strawberries, raspberries, or forks alone. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Don't heat your waffle iron to a high heat otherwise the waffles will turn brown. These waffles are soft like pancakes, not crispy!
