Protein Waffles for the Family
Protein waffles are made several times a week. I make them in big batches and the family eats them in big batches with a family of five active members food goes quick. Mimi loves waffles and calls them waffle pancakes. Whether their pancakes or waffles they are called waffle pancakes and she asks for them daily. So, I like to keep them available all the time.
I used to make us separate waffles; mine protein and hers from the bag at Sam’s club. The main reason was the cost of protein. I figured out how to make a big batch that is family-friendly and my kids actually prefer them now. They actually will say, “Mom, what happened to the other waffles.” It’s funny how when you eat good food you crave good food.
This makes a really big batch so I often freeze them in separate baggies for an easy grab n go breakfast. It doesn’t take long and once you get into the waffle flipping groove you’ll wonder why you didn’t make your own sooner. Give this easy yummy recipe a try and let me know what you think of this cost-effective protein waffle recipe.
I find that people think eating healthy is expensive but I think that is just an assumption. If you broke down the savings from making your own, especially in bulk, you would save a considerable amount yearly. Eating healthy does not have to be expensive. That is why I really like to use Now Foods Vanilla Toffee Protein. It is affordable for families and the ingredients I can trust to use in for everything my family eats. When I buy protein I usually buy one for shakes and one for baking.
I love to top it with Lakanto Maple Syrup. I’ve told you in the past why I have switched to Monk Fruit Sweetener instead of sugar for my family’s baking needs and they have not noticed the difference in the least.
Protein waffles are really easy to meal prep and also to make in advance. They are also something that is associated with not being a diet food which is hard to get my Bible and Bootcamp Beauties out of the mindset of restriction. We cannot live our life on a diet but we can make better choices. These waffles are not as convenient as you just add water but the taste is worth the effort.
