Chocolate Protein Waffles & Ice Cream


A couple weeks ago, I posted this recipe on how to make delicious protein waffles. Again, I want to apologize for being MIA these last couple of weeks; I was on the road for work, incredibly busy, and unable to workout, cook, or dress like normal. I just didn't feel like I had great content to share.

However, I'm back home now, cooking and lifting to my heart's content, and I have a new recipe to share. I updated the protein waffles with a chocolate twist and topped them with Halotop chocolate ice cream which has 7g of protein per serving. I also added a little Hershey's sugar free chocolate syrup which is only 15 calories per serving.

Recipe:
3 scoops Muscle Tech Phase 8 protein powder in cookies and cream, available here
3/4 cup quinoa flour
1 1/4 cup liquid egg whites
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 tsp cinnamon
3 tsp baking powder

Mix all batter ingredients together. 

Next, heat up your waffle maker and spray thoroughly with non-stick cooking spray. Pour in a little less batter than will fill the waffle iron, as it will expand as it cooks. Hold the waffle iron down for 1-2 minutes before checking to see if it's done, the batter expands quite a bit, and if you check too early the waffle will rip apart. Once you've checked it, you can let it cook a little longer, or take it off, depending on how golden brown you want your waffles.

Respray the iron with non-stick spray before putting more batter on the waffle maker, and enjoy.

Notes: Feel free to swap the protein for what you have lying around, though I would recommend using a blend or a casein protein to get a similar batter consistency. The flour can also be swapped for whatever kind you have, I just prefer quinoa flour for the higher protein and neutral taste.

I used a square waffle maker approx 8"x 8", so each waffle can be broken off into 4 smaller squares below. This recipe makes approximately four of the larger waffles (or sixteen small ones), nutrition is for one large waffle. I normally would eat two waffles in a sitting, they are the bomb.
