Are you looking for a great way to add more veggies to your breakfast? These easy Cauliflower Waffles are the perfect way to do that. They're crispy, golden, cheesy, and so yummy ... you won't mind having veggies for breakfast. To make the batter, you'll be using eggs, mozzarella cheese, riced cauliflower and a bit of almond flour to bind the waffle batter. Then you'll be seasoning the batter with Italian seasoning, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika and red chili peppers. 

And since you're using almond flour, these waffles are keto-friendly. Almond flour is also rich in vitamin E, protein, and heart-healthy fats. Meanwhile, cauliflower contains lots of nutrients including vitamin C, K, B6, choline and folate.

To make it a meal, feel free to add some fried eggs, bacon or sausage. Enjoy!
