Tuna Melt Waffles Second

Almond flour is an excellent plain flour substitute. It’s incredibly nutritious and rich in antioxidants, which can help reduce health conditions like heart disease and diabetes. In addition, almond flour has a slightly sweet, nutty taste that compliments the mayo and egg, creating a savory waffle that is a perfect receptacle to any sandwich filling.

Tuna and mayonnaise make up the bulk of the filling. Canned tuna is a popular protein choice as it is inexpensive and easy to find. Tuna is also rich in omega-3 fatty acids and has all the essential amino acids needed to help your muscles grow and maintain lean muscle tissue.

The creamy and tangy mayonnaise is the perfect complement to the tuna, as plain canned tuna usually has a subtle taste. Diced celery adds a nice crunch and breaks up the texture of the tuna filling. Don’t forget to add some salt and pepper to taste before filling up the waffles.

These waffles are fun for the whole family. Get the kids involved in assembling them! The tuna melt filling can also be made ahead of time and kept in the fridge until assembly. The waffles are best served fresh and hot and will contrast nicely with the tuna filling.
