Tasty Protein Waffles

Posted by Lacey Byrd on

PROTEIN WAFFLE

 

Being a nutritionist and a trainer, I work with many people from all different walks of life on aligning their nutrition with their energy output, especially beginning a new fitness plan. One of the most common issues I find is that most people are in a surplus of calories but are not consuming enough protein and fiber to accomplish their goals. Instead they are consuming too much sugar and fats. One of the best ways to fix this discrepancy without having to eat boring, plain foods every day and crave all of the foods you enjoy is to alter the current recipes. 


This protein waffle is one of my favorite breakfasts and leaves me feeling satiated, energized and strong in the morning. It even satisfies my sweet cravings but only has 9 grams of sugar in the entire waffle. Typically waffles, and most sweet foods for that matter, contain high sugar and fat with low protein and fiber. This makes for a delicious taste but doesn’t give your body the correct nutrients leaving you craving more, over eating and storing the excess energy. This waffle does the exact opposite, giving you high fiber and protein with low fat and sugar… Protein helps feed the lean mass and fiber helps with digestion as well as satiety (feeling of fullness).



Ingredients: 

Calories and Macros: 

  • 2 scoops Plant Protein Life Shake
  • ¼ cup Old Fashioned Oats
  • 1 cage free egg 
  • 4 cage free egg whites 
  • ½ cup SO Delicious coconut yogurt alternative 
  • 2 medium strawberries 
  • 1 tsp Maple Syrup 
  • ½  tsp Almond extract
  • PAM butter spray 
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Calories: 317

Protein: 38.5 grams

Carbohydrates: 42.4 grams

Fat: 13 grams

Fiber: 10.5 grams

Sugar: 9 grams

Total Prep Time: 10 minutes 

Servings: 1

 

 Directions:

  1. Preheat waffle maker
  2. While the waffle maker is preheating, mix 2 scoops Plant Protein Life Shake in a bowl with the Old fashioned oats, 4 egg whites, 1 whole egg, Almond extract, and  ¼ cup of SO coconut yogurt. 
  3. When the waffle maker is ready, spray it with PAM spray coconut. 
  4. While the waffle is cooking, in a separate bowl mix ¼ cup SO coconut yogurt, 2 sliced strawberries, 1 tsp maple syrup and cinnamon. This is the topping.
  5. When the Waffle is complete, spray it with the PAM spray coconut and apply the toppings. 
  6. ENJOY with a delicious cup of coffee or tea
