Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Waffles
Alright, so I was feeling like waffles again today, but every time I make protein waffles I’m slightly disappointed with what I cook up. I mean, they smell great, they’re not hard to make… but they just usually taste so-so. I’ve been trying to get in the groove of tracking my macros IIFYM style, so I’ve decided looking for protein-only recipes is no longer a requirement. Why not make some healthy waffles that actually have carbs? They won’t kill me.
These badboys have everything that you could possible want in a protein waffle:
- Peanut Butter
So you know they’re going to taste good. I’m not great at any sort of baking (even if it means jamming a couple ingredients in a waffle iron) so this was totally an experiment for me. I’m really happy with how it turned out, and I didn’t even need to add syrup to make these taste good to snack on. Protein waffles don’t have to be a chore to eat.
In case you’re wondering, this made three big waffles in my waffle iron. I’m calling it 12 portions because I’m counting a single portion as a quarter of a waffle, since my protein waffles seem to break apart nicely like that. You could eat all 12 portions at once. I won’t judge you for all the gains you’ll make.
Ingredients (12 portions)
- 4 eggs
- 1 scoop (30 g) plain protein powder
- 1 scoop (30 g) chocolate protein powder
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 60 g natural peanut butter
- 100 g of raw banana (weight is with no peel)
- 1 cup oats
- Mix all of that awesomeness into a big bowl.
- Eat as many as you can.
