This protein waffles recipe is a great way to enjoy waffles in the AM while getting a good dose of protein to boot!
As I write this, it’s Saturday morning at 8:09am. My little guy wanted to get in the kitchen with me, so I thought we would uphold our Saturday morning ritual of either pancakes or waffles.
The pan I use for pancakes was sitting dirty on the stove from the night before (I was just too tired!), and frankly, I’m just too lazy on a Saturday morning to do dishes BEFORE I cook. So the waffles won.
I’ve really been on a good routine with going to the gym every day and sticking to my clean eating plan. I didn’t want to ruin it with just any ol’ waffle recipe. So I came up with this protein waffles recipe. Glad I did!
If you are looking a waffle recipe that utilizes protein powder, this keto waffle recipe on Youtube seems to be a good one. Worth checking out!
