Sooooo….you know I love my protein. I am looking for ways to get it in my diet, all the time. I also love waffles. So why not mix the two?! I made this a few days ago and posted it on facebook and instagram and all y’all wanted the recipe, so here goes! The beauty is–your whole family will probably love it too! Mine did!

Vanilla Almond Protein Waffles

♦ 2 large eggs

♦ 1 large ripe banana

♦ 1/3 cup sliced blanched almonds (you can use whole blanched)

♦ 1/4 cup vanilla protein powder

♦ 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract

Optional: 1/4 cup chocolate chips

Pre-heat your waffle maker. Put all ingredients in a blender (except chocolate chips if you are using them) and blend. (Stir in chocolate chips now if you want them) Once the waffle maker is ready, grease it up! (I use coconut oil) Pour batter into maker and start!

Makes 4 small waffles (1 large one) i.e. one pour

Have fun with the toppings! (But make sure you don’t go too over the top!) Top with maple syrup, fresh berries, pecans, almonds, bananas, peanut butter, almond butter, chocolate PB2, chocolate chips…the list goes on and on!

Here’s how I made it the first time around with a little drizzle of chocolate PB2
