These days, thanks to my newborn son (now 2 months old), breakfast is always an early event that needs to be quick, filling and satisfying. And for me, that means something that is protein packed, most likely contains chocolate and can be prepared quickly in the morning or prepped the night before. I was making mug cakes, but since our microwave broke I’ve turned to a new form of quick comfort food: protein waffles.
These waffles contain minimal ingredients and provide me with enough energy to get me through the morning. I typically pair them with coffee (of course), frozen blueberries and some nut butter.
Since I prefer freshly made waffles, I will prep the batter at night and then cook the waffles in the morning in our mini waffle maker. But they will store in the fridge or freezer as well if you want to make breakfast even easier 😉
Serves 1; makes 3-4 mini waffles
I drizzled this batch with a mixture of peanut powder and coconut oil and then added desiccated coconut and bee pollen.
These waffles turn out light and airy with a slightly crisp outside.
I made these waffles using Organifi Complete Chocolate Protein; which is a fairly new product to me and the more I use it, the more I like it. This protein is non GMO, Vegan and free of gluten, soy and dairy. The protein blend consists of pea protein, quinoa and hemp (all organic). I think this protein has a slight after-taste most likely because of the stevia; which threw me off at first, but I love the taste now. This Organifi protein bakes well and dissolves in liquids (like smoothies) which is a necessity for me since I typically eat protein in one of those two forms.
If you are in the market for a new protein powder, I recommend trying this one for yourself. You can use my discount code “RABBIT” for 15% off your purchase.
