Banana Nut Protein Waffles

FullSizeRender (1)

Sunday’s are Waffle days in our household! Why? Because they are delicious, crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside and packed full of protein!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1/2 Cup Vanilla Protein Powder
  • 1/2 Cup Quick Oats
  • 1/2 Cup Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
  • 2 Tbsp. Coconut Sugar
  • 2 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 2 tsp. Apple Pie Spice
  • 2 tsp. Cinnamon
  • 1/4 Cup Walnuts
  • 1/3 Cup Coconut Oil
  • 3/4 Cup Almond Milk
  • 2 Bananas – Mashed
  • 1 Egg

Here’s what you do:

  • Pre-heat oven to 375.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the dry ingredients (first 9).
  • Pour the coconut oil and almond milk together in a microwave safe bowl, then microwave for 30 seconds.
  • Add the coconut oil and milk mixture, along with the bananas and egg to your dry ingredients.
  • Mix well with a spoon and let the batter sit while your waffle iron heats up.
  • Once your waffle iron is ready, pour batter on using 1/3 measuring cup**. The batter will be sort of thick, so using your spoon, spread it out some over your waffle iron. **Amount may vary depending on the size of your waffle iron.
  • As they are ready, place them on a metal cooling rack stacked on top of a cookie sheet. Be sure that none of the waffles overlap.
  • Once they are all done (should make about 6), place the cookie sheet in the oven and let them bake for about 7 minutes.
  • Take them out of the oven and serve immediately. A LIGHT drizzle of pure maple syrup, honey or agave may be used on top.
  • Enjoy!

**To make these gluten free, you can substitute the whole wheat pastry flour with gluten free oat flour. Just grind up some of your gluten free oats in a food processor or Nutri-Bullet. 😉
