This breakfast recipe is so simple, easy and healthy, but the best part is how out-of-this world delicious it is!
  • 1 scoop (about 23g) protein powder*
  • 1/4 cup egg whites from a carton + 2-3 tablespoons or more of water for a thinner consistency
  • 1-2 tablespoons (about 20 grams) mashed banana or pumpkin purée from a can
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder (optional- I typically leave this out.)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon or pumpkin spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (I typically leave this out.)
  • Optional for serving: maple syrup, almond butter, Walden Farms calorie free pancake syrup and/or fresh fruit
  1. Heat waffle iron.
  2. Stir all ingredients together in a small bowl, until batter is free from most clumps. Add as much water as needed to get a waffle batter consistency. The batter should be pourable, but not super thin.

  3. Once waffle iron is heated, spray top and bottom of iron with non-stick cooking spray and pour batter over bottom of the iron. Natural non-stick cooking sprays do not work well in this recipe because this waffle tends to stick easily. Use the back of your spoon to spread the batter evenly over the iron.

  4. When waffle iron goes off, transfer waffle to a plate and top with your favorites. Serve immediately or store in a covered container to reheat and enjoy later.
Recipe Notes

* I use Tone It Up protein powder and I love the peanut butter flavor. Any flavor will work.
-Nutritional information is calculated with Tone It Up protein powder, 22g Simple Truth canned pumpkin purée and Simple Truth brand carton egg whites with no additional toppings.
