Waffle Tacos THM

Taco Bell has come out with the waffle taco, and it looks so good. I don't eat at Taco Bell, its on the bottom of my list of fast food, but I want a waffle taco! What is a girl to do? Its not worth it to cheat, but I can't get them out of my mind, not to mention how many times I see the picture of it on my Facebook news feed. Well I decided to THMify it, if you don't know what THM is its Trim Healthy Mama, its not a diet it is a lifestyle. I have been doing THM since August with fabulous results.
These waffle tacos can be made as an E or an S meal. For more information on the THM lingo like "E" and "S" see THM Explained. The THM book has a recipe for E pancakes. The authors have asked that some recipes not be shared. So, I found a substitute that will work. Both recipes make 9 pancakes or 8 waffles.

E version from Protein Pancakes without Protein Powder
1 cup egg whites
1 cup old fashioned oats
1 cup fat-free cottage cheese
Cinnamon
Truvia or stevia
Mix in blender, cook on griddle or waffle iron.
Fill the waffle taco with scrambled egg whites, turkey bacon and top with sugar free syrup. Yum yum.

S version from Gwen's Low Carb Pancakes
1 egg
¼ c. Ricotta Cheese -full or low fat
2 Tbl Flax Seed Meal
½ tsp. Baking Powder
dash of salt
sweetener to taste -You can use 2-3 dashes of Stevia Powder
optional: 1 t. cinnamon or a pinch of nutmeg
½ t. vanilla extract
Mix in blender, cook on griddle or waffle iron.
Fill the waffle taco with bacon or sausage, whole scrambled eggs, and top with sugar free syrup.

Tip for pancakes: Cook slowly until they are firm before flipping.

Now my craving is satisfied and I don't have to eat at Taco Bell. Stay tuned for more updates on my progress and maybe a recipe or two.

  4. I cannot wait to try these. I have been on THM since June and had lost 70 lbs., the day after Christmas I fell off and only got back on this week. I have lost 2.4 lbs. of the 7 lbs. I already feel better but look forward to getting back to my lowest point and going lower. I still have at least 50 plus pounds to lose. I know that with Gods help I can do it. Could I possibly be your friend on facebook. I think you could be a great encouragement to me and hopefully I can be an encouragement to you. I know that I am much older than you (I'm 66) but I sense a kindred spirit. Please reply. Willie Mitchell (I am female), my parents just ran out of names by time I came.
