Gluten Free Low Carb Almond Meal Waffles

Wow,  I was praying these would work and they did!!!!   I've been off sugar this last month and working to cut my carbs way back too.  It's going pretty good, but I was craving a waffle and thrilled with the results of these beauties. These are so easy to make! I have no patience with long difficult recipes :)  I buy my raw almonds from Amazon.  No one has a better price and if you do the Subscribe and Save option it's even better- plus no shipping or tax!  Can't beat that.  Hugs,  Ali
 I was so excited

This is what your almond meal should look like.  Pulse until big chunks are gone and then grind until fluffy, but not too long or it will turn into almond butter
 I keep my almonds in the freezer for longer storage
 My mouth is watering at this point and I can hardly keep from eating the dough
 don't pour too much in the waffle machine or it leaks out the side

They're a little darker because of the skins on the almonds.  I don't blanche my almonds or peel them.  I think we need the fiber.  I did spray my waffle iron well the first time but after that I didn't respray and they still popped out easily.  They're not as crisp as a traditional waffle but no complaints here, they tasted great!
