As a riff on an old favorite, the protein waffle is a fun way to have a little extra protein at breakfast without having to slurp down an uncomfortable protein shake.
Happy Thursday, friends! I’m writing to you from the hotel room in Disney World at a very late hour – we were up late taking advantage of the extra magic hours at the Magic Kingdom. I swear I could spend a whole day in that place. Anyhow, back to this waffle business!
Since I’ve been making it more of a point to eat better things and make healthier choices, I’ve been trying to have at least a little protein at every meal so that I won’t fill up on unnecessary carbs or fats. Although my ideal life would probably consist of eating just pizza and cookies, I know that isn’t really the best thing for my health.
These protein waffles were created when I really didn’t feel like having to wash the small frying pan I make my trusty chocolate chip protein pancakes. I seriously make those at least twice a week. They’re quick to whip up and fill you up in a better way than a bowl of sugary cereal does. At least I’d like to think so.
If you have a waffle iron, give these a try! They’re a fun way to switch things up when you’re getting tired of the same old thing every day. A little change is always a good thing 🙂
How do you enjoy breakfasts?
- 1/2 cup oat flour
- 10 grams protein powder I used vanilla
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 3/4 cups milk almond
- splash vanilla extract
- chocolate chips optional
- fruit optional
- powdered sugar optional
Combine oat flour, protein powder and baking powder into a small bowl. Whisk to combine.
Add in milk and whisk until lumps are dissolved.
Preheat your waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions. Ours calls for one spray of nonstick cooking spray and about 5 minutes to preheat.
Pour half the batter into the waffle iron, cooking to desired doneness. Leave your waffle in a little longer for that classic crispiness.
Top with chocolate chips, fresh fruit, powdered sugar or anything your heart desires.
