WAFFLES!!!

 In Nutrition

There are very few people on this planet that don’t enjoy waffles. They are one of the best breakfast foods you can have. Recently I have talked to some athletes that wish they were able to have a more diverse breakfast then egg whites, a cup of fruit, and some sort of protein. It gets boring. Well, I’m here to save the day. I am going to give a couple awesome recipes for waffles that will make getting to eat waffles on a diet possible again.

Protein Waffles

We still get a high amount of protein and a good amount of carbs to get you going in the morning. You need a waffle maker, obviously.

 Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Waffles

The new Cellucor Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough flavor is BOMB. NO, I am not sponsored by them. I just love their product. Strait up magically delicious! So of course I had to make protein waffles out of it! When I first started IIFYM, I was really into making protein pancakes… until I got a waffle maker and my life was changed forever–so much quicker, so much easier… I mean they are pancakes, but with abs! 😉

Meal Type: Breakfast
Recipe Type: Sports Fuel
Serves: 2
Prep time: –
Cook time: –

Ingredients:
– 1 scoop (35g) cellucor chocolate chip cookie dough protein powder
– 1 tbsp (7g) coconut flour
– 3 tbsp (46g) egg whites
– a dash of baking powder (about 1/2 tsp)
– dark chocolate chips (I used 4g and chopped them into smaller pieces)
– stevia to taste
– water to desired consistency (I like mine fluffy so I don’t use a lot)

Directions:
1. Heat up waffle maker.
2. Mix all ingredients in a bowl except for the water and the chocolate chips. Add water to desired consistency.
3. SPRAY waffle maker and pour in batter. I usually get two waffles out of this recipe (1 big and 1 small).
4. When the waffles are done, top with chocolate chips and enjoy! I also add 0 calorie butter spray and syrup.
