Nothing better to wake up to than coffee and waffles right? Oh wait there is… gluten free waffles AND protein-laced coffee 😉 Am I right?
That’s why we’re having two in one for this fabulous recipe. I knew you’d like it, you coffee fiends. Don’t try to deny it. You love that gluten-free waffle goodness in the mornings. Especially when it’s laced with chocolate and caffeine. I know you so well.
I am actually not like you. I don’t really drink coffee. Okay, well I drink decaf. And I drink a half-caf sometimes. Truth is, I am a little sensitive to caffeine so I have to be really careful not to drink too much. So if you’re wondering why, for this recipe, I only used 1/2 cup of JAVAPRO protein powder, that’s the reason. I get hyped up really quickly. But if you’re a java junkie like so many of my friends, don’t hesitate to use a full 1 cup of JAVAPRO instead of splitting it into two types of protein powder. More power for you!
So about these waffles… let me just say regular waffles ain’t got nothing on these protein gluten free waffles. That’s all. These are delightfully filling and satisfying without having to stuff yourself!
Sure, so maybe they aren’t super light as you’re used to – but what would you rather have? Light regular sugar-laced waffles that will only make you hungry an hour or two later? Or protein-laced heavier and satisfying waffles that will keep you happy and full until lunch? You decide.
That’s right, the recipe will make about 4 big Belgian waffles but honestly – 2 triangles to eat and you are totally set. They are so filling. I loved eating them with some coconut cream and coconut butter on top.
PS. They are also ahh-mazing when dipped in some coffee on the side 😉 Decaf for me.
So that’s that – my first waffle recipe of the blog! My protein pancakes are delicious too but I feel like I might be making more of the waffle goodness in the coming weeks… hehe.
Now, what about this JAVAPRO? It’s a whey protein powder that is all natural and contains 80 mg caffeine per serving. It’s basically like having a cup of coffee… but with a side of protein (aka 20 grams worth). What a genius idea!
They have a lot of other flavors too but I tried the mocha one – I liked it. I bet the Latte Caramel, Hazelnut, and Espresso would be delicious as well. If you dig it too you should go like them on Facebook: http://facebook.com/isopure. Enjoy!
Question for you:
- Do you have coffee each morning?
- How often do you have waffles for breakfast?
