After my workouts sometimes I have a hankering for a something sweet. Not only do I want something sweet but I need something that will restore and refuel my muscles. I came up with this healthy waffle recipe. The recipe makes plenty, so you can freeze and have them ready super fast. Believe me once you tried these waffles, you’ll definitely not want to “leggo this eggo”
Protein Packed Cinnamon Almond Waffles with fresh Peach preserves
Waffles (makes 4 waffles)
¾ cup organic brown rice flour
¾ cup organic soy flour
¼ cup of almond meal
½ serving of vanilla protein powder
1 ½ tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of cinnamon
pinch of salt
1 cup of fat free buttermilk
½ cup of soy milk (plain or vanilla, I used plain)
3 tbsp of plain yogurt (not greek)
1 tsp of vanilla extract
2 large ripe peaches
2 tbsp of honey
½ tsp of vanilla extract
pinch of salt
Start with the preserves since they take longer to prepare than the waffles. Remove pit from peaches then dice into small pieces. (you do not have to remove the skins). Place peaches into small saucepan on low-medium heat. Add honey, vanilla and salt to peaches. Cover with lid. Allow peaches to simmer for approximately 10 minutes until peaches are soft. Remove lid and reduce heat to low. Allow to cook additional 5 minutes then remove from heat. Allow to cool. Place in blender and blend to your consistency preference.
While peaches are cooling, in a large mixing bowl, combine flours, protein powder, almond meal, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Set aside. In a medium bowl whisk together buttermilk, soy milk, eggs, yogurt and vanilla. Fold liquid mixture into flour mixture bowl. (Be careful not to over mix). Allow mixture to rest for approximately 5 minutes.
Heat waffle iron. Place batter into hot waffle iron. Cook waffle based on waffle iron settings. Top with peach preserves.
