This months recipe, a breakfast to impress – Protein Waffles!
Low in carbs and really filling I try to make these whenever I am not running completely late and rushing breakfast. I love how versatile these waffles are, you can flavour them any way you like and change up the toppings.
The following recipe is adapted from Laura @ Girl Gainz Blog. She has some seriously incredible protein recipes so check her website out here.
I have made salted caramel and chocolate waffles but you can change the flavours to suit you.
Protein Powder – 30g
Baking Powder – 1/2tsp
Cocoa Powder – 1tbsp
Coconut Flour – 1tbsp
Yoghurt – 2tbsp
Unsweetened Almond Milk – A splash to make it slightly less thick
Toppings – calorie free syrup, frozen fruit, yoghurt, Coco Pops (For the crunch), coconut flakes
1. Mix together the protein, coconut flour, cocoa and baking powder.
2. Add the egg and create a paste
3. Mix in the yoghurt
4. It should be capable thick, however if it is too dry, add a splash of water or milk to loosen up the mixture.
5. Pop in a pre-heated waffle maker for around 3-4minutes and serve
Again, although not as nice as fresh, the waffles can be made in advance and re-heated.

It is really important to eat a balanced diet with a decent amount of protein within your meals. This can come from sources of your choosing including high quality protein powders. This can be a cheaper and more accessible option than eating lots of meat. Protein powders are also extremely versatile.
