Especially after a workout it is important to fuel your body and provide it with some extra protein. These waffles are not only super delicious but is also a great source of extra plant powered protein. Double win! Most waffle recipes include a lot of oil and maple syrup, which is not very healthy of course. I have done some experiments and this recipe has much better nutritional values yet still tastes great!
Toppings are the best
The best way to eat this is by adding some delicious toppings to your bowl. These also have several health benefits because they are high in antioxidant, vitamins and minerals, healthy fats and fiber. Make sure you use only 1 teaspoon per topping especially with the nuts and seeds! You can never go wrong with fresh berries so you can add as many as you want!
My favorite toppings that I almost always have in my pantry/fridge are:
- All berries
- Raw nuts (almonds, walnuts, pecans, etc)
- Peanut or other nut butter (be careful to only use 1 teaspoon!)
- Raw cacao nibs
- Grated coconut
- And much much more!
Plant protein waffles
- Waffle iron
- Mixing bowl
- Measuring cup
- 150 gr oats flour
- 30 gr soy protein powder Or 30gr (oats)flour
- 10 gr ground flaxseeds
- 1 ½ tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp sea salt
- 2 tbsp stevia or other sweetener, both optional
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 350 ml unsweetened almond milk
- Coconut oil to grease the waffle iron
- Measure all the dry ingredients and add them to your mixing bowl: flour, protein powder, flaxseeds, baking powder, salt & stevia. Mix and create a well in the center.
- Add the vanilla to the almond milk and pour this into the well.
- With a whisk mix until you get a smooth batter without any lumps.
- Let the batter rest in the fridge for 15 minutes.
- Take the batter out of the fridge and stir it. If the batter is too thick add a little more almond milk. Do not use too much almond milk, the batter is supposed to be a bit thick, compared to American pancakes batter.
- Pre heat your waffle iron and lightly grease it with some coconut oil.
- Pour in 2 big spoonful’s of batter into the center of your waffle iron. Be careful to not use too much batter! The batter will spread out and cover the entire waffle iron once you close the lit. Otherwise your batter will come pouring out of your waffle iron making a big mess…!
- After about 5 minutes check your waffles. The cooking time will vary depending on your waffle iron.
- The waffles are ready when they are golden brown and crunchy on the outside.
- Add your favorite toppings and enjoy your waffles right away.
