Remember what it was like to eat waffles as a kid? Your breakfast options just got a little broader. Julian Bakery and Jorge Cruise are proud to announce the arrival of Skinny Waffles.

They are 0 Sugar Calories, GMO-free, gluten-free, soy-free, and dairy-free! You’ll love the soft texture (unlike other gluten free waffles) and the aromatic scent of cinnamon will make you feel like a kid again.
INGREDIENTS: *Coconut Flour, Egg Whites, Coconut Milk, *Coconut Oil, *Stevia, Cinnamon, Potassium Bicarbonate, and Sea Salt. (*Organic)
What are Sugar Calories and Freebies?
Any carbohydrate in a food (including all sugars) is a Sugar Calorie. This is because all carbohydrates and sugars are broken down into glucose (the body’s sugar) at a molecular level and spike insulin. You find Sugar Calories by taking the Total Carbohydrate grams on a nutritional label and multiply by 4* (*there are 4 calories per 1 gram of carbohydrate).
The good news is that there are certain “Freebies” that do not count because they are so low in Sugar Calories and high in nutrients that they do not cause spikes in insulin. The Skinny Waffle is a Freebie, so you can skip looking at the nutrition label.
