Peanut Butter Protein Waffles

Ingredients

  • 1 x egg
  • 35g flour, 1/4 cup, self-raising or plain
  • 1g baking powder, 1/2 tsp, only if using plain flour
  • 35g almond meal, 1/4 cup
  • 40g whey protein, 2 scoops, we like chocolate, vanilla or caramel!
  • 125ml milk, 1/2 cup
  • 2ml vanilla essence, 1/2 tps
  • 60g peanut butter, 3 tbsp, or other nut butter
  • 7g maple syrup, 1 tsp, OR add more to serve

Method

  • Combine flour, almond meal, protein powder and baking powder (if using) into a deep bowl. Mix well with a whisk until ingredients are well combined.
  • In the same bowl add all wet ingredients (egg, milk, vanilla essence, peanut butter and maple syrup) and continue stirring vigorously.
  • Pour batter into an already hot waffle iron and allow to cook to the desired consistency. The longer they're left in, the crispier it'll become.
  • Serve with preferred toppings or as specified in your program.

Gluten-free variation: Use gluten-free self-raising flour

FODMAP friendly variation: Ensure you use a FODMAP friendly protein powder. These don’t contain sugar alcohols (typically end in an ‘ols’) and are made from plant-based sources to avoid the inclusion of lactose.
Remove almond meal and replace with ground walnuts and seeds.

Dairy-free/Lactose-free: Use your preferred milk alternative and opt for a plant-based protein powder.
