Weekends are the best part of my week. No rushing out the door, no dashing for the subway, no meals focused on convenience. It’s my time to unwind, get creative and get caught up.
My weekday meals are usually portable, nutritious and fast. Most of them are prepared in 15-minutes or less actually. I’ve mastered the art of cramming the most amount of nutrition into the fastest meals possible. So when it comes to the weekend, I like to change it up, try new things and take my time.
This weekend, it was Pumpkin Protein Waffles. Warming and in the spirit of the season, these delicious bad boys will quickly become a real crowd favorite.
3 scoops of vanilla sunwarrior protein
3 eggs or flax eggs
2 tbs of pumpkin puree
1 cup of almond milk
A dash of cinnamon
A dash of nutmeg
A dash of vanilla
1 tbs of baking powder
Fruit of your choice
Chocolate syrup: I made a super quick version by mixing 3 tbs of coconut syrup with 2 tbs of cacao
Mix all of the ingredients (besides the toppings) together in a bowl until smooth. Add to the waffle iron and cook until firm and crisp. Remove and let cool for 3 minutes. Then spread on the coconut yogurt, add the fruit and drizzle on some syrup. Yummy, yum, yum!
