These easy low carb blender waffles have all the great flavours of a peanut butter and jam sandwich! But of course, they are healthy, sugar-free and grain-free. A hearty breakfast for those chilly fall mornings. This post is sponsored by Safeway.
Can you believe it’s the end of September already? It’s particularly hard to believe around these parts because the majority of this month has been quite hot. Summer-like temperatures and little to no rain have many of us in the Pacific Northwest dying for the colder temperatures. Really, we deserve a little cooling off period after the scorching heat we had in August. But of course, once the cold and rain come around, we will likely be complaining about that too. There’s just no pleasing us!
I do love the fall for so many reasons, even if it is rainy. The kids go back to school, life settles into a more regular routine, and we get to shake up our wardrobe, exchanging shorts and flip flops for jeans and boots. It’s also the start of comfort food season, where we can indulge in soups and heavier foods in an effort to keep the chilly weather at bay. But with comfort season also comes…cold and flu season. With three school-age kids in the house, I can’t say I ever look forward to that part of it!
We are pretty healthy, hardy folk, though. We get our share of the sniffles but we are rarely laid low by serious illness (quick, where’s the wood? I need to knock in it!!!). Some of that is due to genetics and good hygiene, but I like to take at least a little credit for it, and say that some of it is because of the healthful, wholesome low carb diet I feed my family.
One of the weapons in my healthy food arsenal is the O Organics line from Safeway. It’s quite an extensive line of products and I am always impressed by the quality and the value, be it the fresh produce or the canned goods or the meats and dairy products. It’s so reasonably priced, you aren’t breaking the bank to make the organic choice.
And I love nothing more than to send my kids off to school on a chilly fall day with tummies full of a healthy, hearty low carb breakfast. When I was a kid, toast with peanut butter and jam was one of my favourite breakfasts, so I decided to have a little fun with that theme. These waffles are easy to whip up in your blender, and the raspberry syrup is like spreading jam on your toast, without all the added sugars!
O Organics are exclusive to the Albertsons Companies family of stores. I feel lucky to have several Safeway stores and an Albertson’s within a few miles of my house, so I can grab 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 all the things you need to keep your family healthy this cold and flu season!

- 3/4 cup O Organics frozen raspberries
- 2 tbsp water
- 1/4 cup powdered swerve sweetener OR 1/4 tsp monk fruit extract
- 1/4 tsp xanthan gum
- 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.
- Stir in the sweetener until well combined. Sprinkle the surface with xanthan gum and whisk briskly to combine. Set aside.
- In a blender or food processor, combine the eggs, almond milk, peanut butter and sweetener. Blend until smooth.
- Add the almond flour, baking powder, vanilla extract and salt and blend again until smooth.
- Pour about ¼ cup of the batter into each section of the waffle iron (if your waffle iron is round or is not very deep, you will need less batter for each section). Spread the batter to the edges and close the lid.
- Cook until golden brown on both sides. Remove the waffles and repeat with remaining batter.
- Serve with your favorite low carb syrup or with the Raspberry Syrup.
