Whip 2 of the egg whites to stiff peaks. You can either use a hand mixer, an egg beater, or a whisk if you want a workout.

Once you have stiff peaks, stir in the almond flour, milk of choice, baking powder, xtlitol, and either 1 whole egg. Heat up your waffle iron to the highest temperature, and grease or spray it with nonstick olive oil / coconut oil spray.

Pour in the batter (You can do it in two batches if you need to), and cook in the waffle iron until browned, about 3-4 minutes. Remove from waffle iron using a spatula and allow to cool a little before adding toppings.

Place xylitol in a heated pan and allow to melt. Add sliced bananas and cook on medium heat until xylitol starts to caramelize over bananas. Once slightly browned, remove from heat.

Top waffles with generous caramelized banana, generous spoonfuls of macadamia nut butter and freshly sliced strawberries.

Tip of the day

White pepper
Use white pepper when making pale, creamy sauces or clear stock because it won't discolour the sauce.
