Apple Pie Protein Waffles

Here are some protein waffles that contain both a whole fresh apple and a banana! In addition to adding fantastic flavour, the fruit ensure that your waffles stay nice and moist. The only trick to using fruit in your waffles is making sure that you have enough dry ingredients, preferably of the flour family. You really have to pay attention to this, because if you don’t, you’ll end up with a batter that’s more like baby mush than waffle batter. You definitely don’t want that.

If you want to take your waffles up another notch, consider including additions like chopped walnuts, pecans, or dark chocolate chips. You’ll add a nice texture, flavour, and if you go down the nut route, some crunch, healthy fats, and fiber. When it comes to toppings, the sky’s the limit! You can go classic with honey or maple syrup, go low-carb with peanut or almond butter, or add some extra protein with a side of eggs, ham, or bacon.

Ingredients

  • Vanilla (or unflavoured) whey protein powder, 1/2 cup
  • Rolled oats, 1/2 cup
  • Baking powder, 1 tsp
  • Milk, 2 tbsp
  • Ground almonds, 1/4 cup
  • Cinnamon, 1-2 tsp to taste
  • Banana, 1 small
  • Apple, 1
  • Eggs, 2 (or 4 egg whites if you’d like lower fat)

Directions

  1. Blend all of the ingredients in a food processor until they create a thick batter.
  2. Preheat your waffle iron, and add some low-cal cooking spray to it.
  3. Cook your batter in your waffle iron. Done!
