When it comes to breakfast, my boys love waffles but I don’t mean high sugar versions – my waffles have added protein powder to keep you fuller longer and using gluten free flour keeps them gluten free as well. You could use vanilla or chocolate protein powder in this recipe and to keep it dairy free I use almond milk.

What’s good about it?

Adding protein powder to the batter is an easy way to increase your protein intake at breakfast. This will help stabilise blood sugar and keep you feeling fuller for longer. Any protein powder will work

  1. Preheat your waffle maker and grease with coconut oil or olive oil
  2. Place all the ingredients in a nutri bullet or blender and process until smooth. Add enough almond milk to form a thick batter.  If you add too much simply add a little more flour or protein powder
  3. Pour some of the batter into the waffle maker and cook according to the manufacturers instructions.
  4. Repeat with the remaining batter.
  5. Serve with fruit and yogurt or dairy free yogurt
