Vegan Protein Waffles

Sometimes I get bored with eating oatmeal so, here’s a recipe I use to make protein waffles using oats (which also makes this recipe gluten free).

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 scoop plant protein of choice
  • 2 teaspoons cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon flax meal
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup water or plant-based milk

Instructions

1. Turn on the waffle maker and spray it with a small amount of coconut oil to prevent the waffles from sticking.

2. In a food processor, combine oats, plant protein,

flax meal, cacao powder, baking powder, and baking

soda.  Pulse 2 to 3 times.

3. Add water and process all the ingredients until they

are well combined and form a batter.

4. Pour batter into the hot waffle maker and wait 1

minute before closing it.  Heat waffles for 6-8

minutes or until desired consistency.

5. Top with fresh fruit and enjoy!

Strawberries & Cream Quinoa Protein Bars

Strawberries & Cream Quinoa Protein Bars
Healthy, minimal ingredients, easy to prepare and protein packed! These can be enjoyed either chewy or crispy if baked longer. The base recipe can be changed to have so many other flavors. Quinoa is the base for these protein bars which greatly elevates their nutritional value compared to regular protein bars.

1⃣In a bowl mix:
🔹2c cooked quinoa
🔹2sc vanilla protein powder
🔹1/4c buckwheat flour
🔹1T honey
🔹1t vanilla extract
🔹2T coconut oil
🔹4oz baby food pears
🔹1/2c flaked coconut
2⃣Swirl in:
🔹1c mashed strawberries
3⃣Spread (about 1/2inch thick) onto a cookie sheet with sides that has been lined with parchment paper and greased.
4⃣Bake at 350F for 15-20min for chewy texture and around 30min for a more crunchy texture. (Ovens vary so check and bake shorter/longer as desired)

Nom nom nom! These were so good! Healthy, minimal ingredients, easy and protein packed! These can be enjoyed either chewy or crispy if baked longer. This first batch I decided to go for chewy and they were delish. Next time I am going to try a different flavor and make them crispy just to change it up! I love the base recipe and the fact that it can be changed to have so many other flavors is a major bonus. Quinoa is the base for these protein bars which greatly elevates their nutritional value compared to regular protein bars.
