These low carb blender waffles have all the flavors of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich! But of course they are healthy, sugar free and grain free. A hearty breakfast for those cold fall mornings. This publication is sponsored by Safeway.
Can you believe it is already the end of September? It is particularly difficult to believe in these parts because most of this month has been quite hot. Summer-like temperatures and little or no rain make us die in the Pacific Northwest from colder temperatures. We really deserve a little cool down after the scorching heat we had in August. But of course, once the cold and rain comes, we are likely to complain about that, too. We just don't like it!
I love the fall for many reasons, even if it rains. Children go back to school, life becomes a more regular routine and we can shake our wardrobe, trade shorts and flip flops for jeans and boots. It's also the start of the comfort food season, where we can enjoy soups and heavier foods in an effort to keep cold weather at bay. But with the comfort season also comes … the cold and flu season. With three school-age children in the house, I can't say I ever look forward to that part!
However, we are quite healthy and resistant people. We get our share of colds, but are rarely affected by serious illnesses (quick, where's the wood? I have to touch it!). Some of that is due to genetics and good hygiene, but I like to give myself at least a little credit and say that part of it is due to the healthy and wholesome low-carb diet I feed my family.
One of the weapons in my arsenal of healthy foods is the Safeway O Organics line. It is a fairly extensive product line and I am always impressed by the quality and value, whether it is fresh produce or canned goods or meats and dairy products. It is so reasonably priced that it is not breaking the bank to make the organic decision.

And I love nothing more than sending my kids to school on a cold fall day with tummies full of a healthy, hearty, low-carb breakfast. When I was a kid, peanut butter and jam toast was one of my favorite breakfasts, so I decided to have a little fun with it. These waffles are easy to make in your blender, and raspberry syrup is like spreading jam on your toast, without all the added sugars!
O Organics is exclusive to the Albertsons Companies family of stores. I feel fortunate to have several Safeway stores and an Albertson’s within a few miles of my home so I can take what I need for healthy meals. But you can find them in your area at Jewel-Osco, Vons, Pavilions, Randalls, Tom Thumb, Shaw’s, Star Market, United Supermarkets, Market Street, Albertsons Market, and Carrs / Safeway.
And Safeway has everything you need to keep your family healthy this cold and flu season!
Peanut Butter Blender Waffles
These low carb blender waffles have all the flavors of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich! But of course they are healthy, sugar free and grain free. A hearty breakfast for those cold fall mornings.
Servings: 10 servings
Calories: 270 kcal
3/4 cup OR Organics frozen raspberries
2 tablespoon water
1/4 cup powdered sweetener or 1/4 teaspoon monk fruit extract
1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
4 4 large O Organics eggs
1 cup O Organics unsweetened almond milk
2/3 cup O Organics old-fashioned creamy peanut butter
6 6 tablespoon Swerve sweetener or other sugar substitute
2 cups almond flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the berries and water. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer 5 minutes. Mash berries with a wooden spoon.
Add the sweetener until well combined. Sprinkle the surface with xanthan gum and beat quickly to combine. Set aside.
In a blender or food processor, combine the eggs, almond milk, peanut butter, and sweetener. Mix until smooth.
Add the almond flour, baking powder, vanilla extract, and salt and mix again until smooth.
Pour about ¼ cup of the dough into each section of the waffle iron (if the waffle iron is round or shallow, you'll need less dough for each section). Roll out the dough to the edges and close the lid.
Cook until golden brown on both sides. Remove the waffles and repeat with the remaining dough.
Serve with your favorite low carb syrup or raspberry syrup.
