Very Berry Protein Waffles

Confession: I did not eat anything but my Banana Bread Psylium Pancakes with PB2 sauce for a solid 12 days in a row. Obsessed? Yes. Whenever I make something I like, I become an addict for a good 2 weeks. These waffles ended my streak, and they were delicious enough to require posting. I don't usually blend fruit into my pancake and waffles batters because I like to keep them lower in carbohydrates so I can top them with fresh fruit, yogurt, etc. I was really excited that I was able to keep the fruit content low for this recipe, but still get the "very berry" flavor I was aiming for. However, you can add more if you prefer. The waffles were fluffy, flavorful and very satisfying! Who doesn't love digging into a fluffy tower of waffles?!

Very Berry Protein Waffles


1/4 cup Egg Beaters
2 tablespoons unsweetened Almond milk

1/2 banana
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
1 tablespoon coconut flour
1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Cinnamon to taste
Truvia to taste


1. Mix or blend the egg beaters, milk, and fruit. Add dry ingredients and blend or mix well.
