Get Yo' Protein

If you all are anything like me when it comes to breakfast, I always, ALWAYS crave something sweet. I am never exactly the one to crave savory dishes for breakfast unless it is accompanied with something sweet to balance it out.

So clearly you can see where this is going.

As of late I have been loving breakfasts with a little kick of extra protein. In this case...protein waffles. Simple, delicious and the toppings and add-in options are endless!

Basic ingredients:
1 scoop protein powder
2 egg whites
Cinnamon to taste
Vanilla extract approx 1 tsp
Stevia if needed
2 tbs soy milk
1/2 mashed banana

My favorite add ins/toppings:
Blueberries or strawberries
Fruit preserves
Nut butters

Mix together the basics, add whatever you want and then pour into a waffle iron or make 'em into pancakes :) Top with whatever fits your fancy and enjoy!


  1. Yum! I make these as pancakes all the time but I think waffles are so much more fun!

  2. What a clever idea to add protein powder. I am just like you, always craving sweet over savory.

    p.s. did you ever get the cheesecake recipe i sent you? I got an email saying that your address wasn't accepting emails or something like that

  3. I meant to email you back but then it got away from me. I received the email but there was no recipe attached.
