It’s been a HOT MINUTE since we’ve discussed GG crackers. I mean sure, they’re the star of the show frequently on IG STORIES but like we need a recipe post here & there, you know? The blog is a good way to showcase the FULL STORY!
For those of you who need a refresh, GG CRACKERS are the fiber-filled crackers that help you stay fuller longer while keeping your gut healthy. That’s just the beginning. We even had a whole podcast where we really went deep on why fiber is essential. FIBER can come from many sources but GG’s are an efficient way to add fiber & I just like them- weird but I actually think they’re good. If you don’t love them, think of them as a vehicle for protein, not a bread replacement. GG crackers may be bland but MAN OH MAN are they versatile.
My latest obsession is brought to you by Nedi from Healthy with Nedi. She’s appeared on The Skinny Confidential before and she shared her cauliflower muffins, vodka martinis and beauty tips. NOW she’s sharing her FIBER-FILLED BLUEBERRY WAFFLES- these are straight from her eBook with F-Factor founder, Tanya Zuckerbrot. She has become a friend in real life from Instagram which is nuts. I very much love her & HER RECIPES! She’s a very cool girl & someone you want to watch on IG Stories ( trust me, follow her: @healthywithnedi ). She also happened to gift me my favorite perfume in the WORLD- if you’re looking for a new scent, it’s insane. Anyway, you can stalk her eBook here– there’s SO MANY GOOD SKINNY RECIPES. I got the eBook & I have been using it every day.
Goodies you’ll find in Nedi’s eBook:
+ 39 F-Factor Step 1 approved recipes

If your mouth is watering, don’t worry. These waffles can be whipped up in like 5 minutes- I make them a few times a week. AND you probably have all the ingredients on hand.
So with that let’s get right to it.
Fiber-Filled Blueberry Waffle
INGREDIENTS ( serves 1 )
STEP 1. In a mixing bowl, combine the pulverized GGs with the egg whites, yogurt, baking powder, cinnamon and blueberries. Mix well.
STEP 2. Heat the waffle maker, spray with cooking spray and add in the waffle batter. Cook on low to medium setting until the light goes green.
STEP 3. Heat a sauce pan over medium heat and add raspberries and fiber gold syrup (Sukrin). Mash the raspberries and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and stir constantly for 2 minutes. Strain through a fine mesh sieve to remove the seeds. Top waffle with syrup and enjoy!
TSC BERRY SYRUP
+ Mash berries up with a fork, squeeze lemon in the ‘mash’, add a few ( a fewwww ) drops of syrup, & mix it all together. Microwave for a few seconds & it turns into a syrup-y mixture that’s kind of like an amazing berry delight compote.
The whole thing gets me all nostalgic because it totally reminds me of the Knott’s Berry Farm boysenberry syrup I used to scarf down with buttermilk Eggo waffles circa 1994. Tsk-tsk, but #TBT.
