I’ve always been a fan of grilled cheese sandwiches, and this takes the cake for being one of the best I’ve had. These are decadent enough to be served as a full blown main course, or just to impress someone significant in your life for breakfast. No matter what course you serve it as, your guest will be super impressed with what you were able to accomplish. This is a common rarity among foodies, and is always enjoyed by everyone I serve them to.
You can use other fruits in this if you’re not a huge raspberry fan, but raspberries tend to pair extremely well with brie. You’re looking for something bright and slightly acidic that can cut through the richness of the double-cream brie. So, feel free to use blueberries or blackberries in place of them. Just make sure that if you do end up changing the fruit, you watch the carb counts on them as these are relatively high already.
A little trick I found out about when making waffles (if you don’t have an indicator on your waffle maker) is to watch your steam levels. When a waffle is cooked, very little steam will be coming out of the waffle iron. So, if you have an indicator that usually goes off too soon, just keep an eye on the steam that’s coming out. If there’s still a lot, it’s definitely not ready yet – we all hate it when we lift the waffle iron to see if it’s done and everything just rips apart.
P.S. This waffle mixture will create awesome waffles in and of itself. So if you have a waffle hankering that needs to be fulfilled, feel free to just use the waffle recipe!
Yields 2 servings of Raspberry Brie Grilled Waffles
- ½ cup almond flour
- 2 tablespoons flaxseed meal
- 1/3 cup coconut milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons Swerve
- 7 drops liquid Stevia
- ½ cup raspberries
- Zest of ½ lemon
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon Swerve
- 3 ounces double cream brie
1. Mix together all of the ingredients for the waffles in a container. Make sure that the consistency is smooth and there are no lumps.
2. Heat a waffle maker (I use this waffle maker) and once hot, add your batter. Allow it to cook until the light turns green or the steam levels are low.
3. Take the waffles out and allow them to cool slightly.
4. Slice your brie and lay on top of the waffles while still warm so that the brie comes to room temperature.
5. In a pan on the stove, heat butter and swerve. You can powder the swerve in a spice grinder.
6. Once the butter is starting to brown and the swerve is dissolving, add your raspberries, lemon juice, and zest of 1/2 lemon.
7. Continue to stir the mixture until it bubbles and becomes jam-like.
8. Under the broiler, broil the brie until melted and the waffle slightly crisp.
9. Assemble the waffle together with the raspberry filling and the brie. Put into a pan and “grill” for 1-2 minutes per side.
10. Enjoy this delicious treat, or share!
