PKU Low Protein Waffles

Waffles for breakfast! I announce. Keir says ‘what?’ ‘Waffles, you will like them.’ ‘Huh?’ he responds totaly puzzled.

We picked up a sample pack of Taranis Low Protein Waffle mix at the NSPKU Conference and ever since have been searching for waffle plates to fit into our existing grill. Finally Keir’s dad managed to order them from US. After a long wait, they have arrived just in time for the bank holiday weekend. It was worth the wait.

Making the waffle mix was a simple process, we used an electric mixer which made it much easier to mix the thick batter. (we might have got ourselves a little muddled up and  didn’t add enough milk, ooops! )As well as the mix you will need few basic ingredients from your kitchen for the recipe. The full instructions are written on the box for making the waffle mix although it is very tiny I found it hard to read. Keir’s sister was very helpful and read it to me.  Once the mixture was made it needed to rest in the fridge for an hour. We used that time to get some fresh strawberries. We might have added less milk by mistake however the waffles turned out great. The waffles did not have a strong sweet taste so we served it with a dusting of icing sugar and fresh strawberries. Keir loved them and has been asking for more. The real shame is we only had one pack so we will need to order it through pharmacy and wait for it to arrive. Keir asked why we couldn’t just get some more. For the first time, we had to explain to him how we couldn’t just get it from the supermarket and we need it order it through the prescription and wait for it to arrive at Boots. He said ‘ooh’. I gave him a big cuddle and wanted to say ‘sorry’ but I know I shouldn’t.
