There’s nothing better than waking up, making some waffles, and enjoying a nice leisurely breakfast with a cup of coffee. Except.. this pretty much NEVER happens at our house. Here’s what a morning actually looks like: I wake up at 5.. stumble to the coffee machine, turn it on and slowwwwwly wake up with each sip. Then I go to the computer, and bang out blog work until about 7:00. (I work in the dark in our tiny little apartment- gotta do what ya gotta do!). Ty wakes up, gets ready, heads out the door. I clean up and prep whatever I can for dinner from 7-7:30 (somehow there is always a mess, even when I go to bed and it seems clean). More coffee, get ready for work, annnnnd in the car by 8:30 on my way to work. If you’re catching my drift – there’s no freakin’ time for making waffles in the AM, ya know?!
Since I’m running around in the morning, I rarely make a fancy breakfast. I have waaaaay too many other things to do to worry about that. It’s gotta be simple, tasty, healthy, and protein packed to keep me full. These Healthy Blender Banana Bread Protein Waffles are pretty much a dream come true, because if you prep them ahead of time, they hit on each of my criteria. WOOHOO!
Most waffle recipes are just a total carb overload, but not these! They have a secret ingredient to make them a little heartier and bulk them up: Ancient Nutrition Bone Broth Protein Powder ! Now, I totally get that protein powder might not be your thing. A bunch of them have weird sweeteners, and can totally turn your baked goods into hockey pucks. (Been their, done that..) It’s not really my thing either. A while back I found out what they were putting in protein powder and basically said what the HECK, no thanks. It was leaving me feeling bloated and gross, instead of feeling full and satisfied. This protein powder is different than most other protein powders. There are NO carbs are sugars in this powder, and it’s paleo-friendly, non GMO, and gluten, soy & dairy free. Wanna know why? It has one ingredient: Chicken Bone Broth powder.
Don’t be alarmed by the whole chicken thing, I promise once you try Ancient Nutrition Bone Broth Protein Powder you’ll fall in love with it. Since it has no flavor it goes well in pretty much anything and because there is no junk in it, you’ll actually feel good enjoying it! It’s so perfect in these waffles! Here’s the recipe.
- 2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
- 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- ¼ cup Ancient Nutrition Bone Broth protein powder
