Protein Waffles




You lovelies have probably noticed if you're following my Instagram (@chicinsneakers) or regularly reading my recipe posts, that I have had a mini obsession with protein pancakes lately. Some of the recipes have been so close the real thing they are just too delicious to pass up for breakfast every day. I've upped the amount of protein I'm eating as well, so they have been a great start to my mornings, as well as an awesome dessert in the evenings. 

Yet, I have been skeptical of venturing into the realm of protein waffles, it always seemed to risky; the chance of burning too high. I re-purposed my favorite pancake recipe for a waffle iron and used Pam non-stick spray in between each waffle to get that perfect golden brown waffle.

I topped mine with Halotop ice cream for the most amazingly delicious protein packed dessert (see photos below). I recently discovered Halotop, and have been amazed by the 14 g protein per cup at only 140 calories!
