Protein Waffles

2018-01-15 05.18.14 1.jpg

I have been hunting for way to improve my protein intake. In general, I’m not a bad eater. Ok, I have my weaknesses, but I’m not a disaster. And I think a lot of people fall into this category. I eat well, but I don’t properly fuel my body. I eat a ton of vegetables and fruit and whole grains, but I lack in protein. In an effort to improve upon this, I’m doing more meal planning and in particular, breakfast planning. I can totally survive on a coffee and a granola bar, but I’m hangry by noon. This recipe for protein waffles/ pancakes is easy. Make a bunch, freeze them and toast them up for breakfast [like Eggos, but without the artificial ingredients and packaging and sugar].

Protein Waffles

1 tsp  Cinnamon
1 tsp  Vanilla Extract
1.2 cups  Milk (almond or regular)
2 Tbsp  Macadamia Nut Oil (or Canola Oil)
61.5g  Vanilla Whey Protein Powder
1  Large Brown Egg
1.2 cups  Pancake Mix (use what you have/like – reg, gluten free, whole wheat)

  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Make waffles or pancakes to your liking. These cook up just like normal pancakes or waffles would.
  2. Cool and freeze for future use or enjoy hot.

These are fluffy and golden and hearty. I like to double or triple this recipe to make bulk batches. 1 recipe makes approximately 3-4 large waffles. Also try adding to the recipe – chocolate chips, blueberries, nuts. I top mine with peanut butter for an even better morning boost.

Warning: they’re addicting. Enjoy!

Cheers,
Bridget
