  • 1 oz, raw (yield after cooking) Turkey Breakfast Sausage
  • 1 large Egg (Whole)
  • 1/16 cup Coconut Milk Unsweetened
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 tbsp Canola Vegetable Oil
  • 1/2 cup Flax Seed Meal
  • 1/2 oz Vanilla Whey Protein
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Sucralose Based Sweetener (Sugar Substitute)
  • 1/4 tsp Baking Powder (Straight Phosphate, Double Acting)
  • 1/16 tsp Nutmeg (Ground)
  • 1/16 tsp Salt
  • 4 tbsp Maple Syrup (sugar-free)


  1. Brown sausage in a skillet over medium-high heat until cooked through.  Remove excess fat by placing on a paper towel and set aside.  
  2. While the sausage is cooking, preheat a non-stick waffle maker.  Spray wells with non-stick spray just before pouring in the batter.  
  3. Combine the egg, 1 Tbsp coconut milk, vanilla and oil in a small bowl.  Mix thoroughly with a fork for about 1 minute.  Add the flax meal, protein powder, granular sugar substitute, baking powder, nutmeg and salt.  Mix thoroughly for 1-2 minutes. 
  4. Pour the batter into the waffle maker (it should fill 4 regular 1/2 -inch waffle slots).  Otherwise, simply fill with batter according to your waffle maker instructions.  For Belgium waffles this recipe makes 2 1/2 squares.  
  5. Cook for 3-5 minutes until golden brown and set.  Or follow your waffle maker instructions.  Serve with sugar-free pancake syrup and sausage.  These waffles freeze well.  Reheat in a toaster for 1-2 minutes.
