Gluten Free Banana Protein Waffles
Crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, you’ll never guess that these waffles are packed with protein and gluten free to boot! Enjoy topped with pure maple syrup, coconut oil, butter, peanut butter, or anything else your heart desires.
I love waffles for dinner. I don’t know if it’s because they are warm, crispy, and sweet, or if it’s the memories that come when Landon and I have waffles for our evening meal.
*Walking down memory lane* My mom used to make a big batch of waffles at night, we would eat them for dinner, and she would freeze the rest of breakfasts throughout the week. Genius. I’m thinking having breakfast prepared for the week made her feel just about as good as being at the beach… (Okay isn’t my mom adorable!?)
Last night, I decided to whip up a batch of gluten free, banana waffles.
Try these out and let me know how you like them… In the words of donkey, “In the morning, I’m making waffles!”
- 2 c. Oat flour
- 2/3 c. Whey protein (I used banana flavor!)
- 2 tbsp. Chia seeds
- 1 tsp. Cinnamon
- 3 packets stevia
- 2 tbsp. Baking powder
- Dash of salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 c. Almond Milk (or regular)
- 1/4 c. Plain Greek yogurt
- 2 tbsp. Melted coconut oil
- 2 small bananas, sliced
Combine dry ingredients and set aside. Stir in all wet ingredients. Add sliced bananas and fold into batter.
Scoop 2/3 c. batter onto heated waffle maker. Cook until golden brown and slightly crispy on top. (My waffle iron has a light to tell me when the waffle is fully cooked…I waited just a little longer to make sure waffle was thoroughly cooked and crispy on the outside…use your own judgement!)
Enjoy with coconut oil (highly reccomended!) and pure maple syrup (my favorite!)
