I don’t know about you guys but I LOVE anything lemon! I will preface this post by saying the protein powder used may not be 100% “perfect”…but it is very close, and after using it I have found it works well with my body. I am slightly lactose intolerant, therefore I truly can’t do whey protein concentrate and need an isolate form of protein powder for use post-workout. Any of the high quality whey concentrates totally mess me up! The brand I have been using for my waffles is ASCENT – and to me this is a great product. If it’s not something you are interested in, that is fine! You can use something else if you prefer. It can be very hard to find a high quality protein product out there – and this one is very close to perfect.
Along with the Lemon Sorbet protein flavor, I add some lemon oil extract. It’s delicious!
INGREDIENTS – makes 2 waffles
- 1 cup old fashioned oats
- 1 banana
- 3 whole eggs (again, I like pasture raised organic)
- 1/4 cup water (just a little to get the right consistency)
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 scoop ASCENT lemon sorbet protein powder
- 1/2 tsp lemon oil extract
Get your waffle iron and plug it in. Take a high speed blender and put your eggs and water in first. Now add the remaining ingredients and blend well. Spray your waffle iron with a high quality coconut spray or olive oil spray (made without propellant – see picture below of my brand). Pour half the batter in the waffle maker and cook for 3 minutes. Remove the waffle. Spray the waffle iron again and make your second waffle.
Enjoy with pecans or almond butter and/or drizzle pure maple syrup (just a little will do).
