April Fool U Protein Waffles

I admit it. I love waffles. I love making them for the fam, I love the way my daughter oohs and aaahs that they are the best waffles EVA! and i love that I usually make leftovers and pop ’em in the micro the next day and eat one on the way to work. Its really not a problem as i see it, but I have been in the habit of using the “just add water” easy mix and not by scratch. It is a shame to get the waffle iron out and put little to no effort in to the mix. So, I’ve changed. In search of a healthy recipe, i found a website called My Trainer Paige. She had a great recipe and so i doubled it and threw in a few of my own ideas. Here it goes. BTW, I made them on April Fool’s day, not for any reason, just because.

Dry Ingredients: (mix together in large bowl)

Happy Spoons make Happy Waffles!

Happy Spoons make Happy Waffles!

2 c. Whole Wheat Flour,

2 scoops protein powder (vanilla), You could probably use another flavor? and no particular brand, something you like. Mine has 26g protein per scoop.

2 Tbsp sugar (Or what you use as sweetener) ,

1 tsp salt, 1 tsp baking soda, sprinkle cinnamon,

Wet ingredients: (mix together in small bowl)

2 eggs, 2 tsp vanilla extract, 2 cups skim milk,

Stir  wet ingredients into the dry. Do not over mix.

Now that they are happy-get’em steamy.

Spray your waffle iron with non stick spray and pour in the batter.

When the steam slows to almost stopping–whooopie! They are done!

Toppings are always personal preference, while I still LOVE real butter on mine, I feel a little less guilty finishing them off with fresh fruit. I’ve done mini chocolate chips, banana, peanut-butter, and greek yogurt, choose whatever is around and looks good, you can’t go wrong,  I promise.

Rasberries, blueberries, blackberries and antioxidant dream!

I have a great friend who has her own jam company, “Big Bad Dad’s Homemade Jam’s and Jellies”, so I am a bit of a jam snob. Her jams are all natural no preservatives, and packed with amazing flavor combinations! (I recommend Go-Blue. A combo of Goji Berries and Blueberries she made just for me.<3) Heat a little jam in the microwave or saucepan and pour it over a hot steamy waffle…its heaven.

My daughter prefers her waffles the traditional way with syrup. I can’t blame her, honestly, maple syrup is the purest of sweeteners. Since the whole wheat makes the waffles a bit more dense than she is used to, I cut the waffles into long dunking waffles. I placed a small bowl with syrup on the side and she had a lot of fun with it! “Best waffles EVA!”

Dunking waffle sticks

The waffle makeover was a success. Simple basic recipe, you could alter a hundred different ways for your taste. It was an easy way to get  in extra protein. Release yourself from waffle guilt, like me. Try it.
