Easy Homemade Protein Waffles
Who didn't grow up watching the famous toaster waffles pop up on TV?
The nostalgia of waffles at breakfast time is hard to beat but regular waffles leave something to desire with the lack of protein to keep you full and fuel your day.
Now you can have your waffles and pack the protein in too! These waffles are easy to make ahead of time and store in the freezer. When you're hungry for a protein-pack snack or breakfast, just pull a couple out of the freezer, pop them in the toaster, and you're ready to go.
Not only are waffles so easy to make in a cute waffle iron, but there is also so much you can add to them and top them with. The dimples are perfect for holding all of the goodies whether you’re a syrup and fruit person or a peanut butter and granola person. The possibilities are endless.
With the RAW Pure Protein powder, you can pack your breakfast with protein and have full control over the flavor and sweetness of your waffle. Get your protein in at breakfast, or snack on waffles after a workout and recover with RAW Pure Protein.
INFINIT's RAW protein powder is made with grass-fed whey protein isolate and added BCAAs and glutamine for optimal muscle support. This blend helps rebuild muscle tissue for muscle growth and recovery. Our grass-fed whey is made of dairy from cows that spend their lives grazing in the green pastures of Ireland so you can rest easy knowing that the fuel that is making your muscles happy came from cows that are just as happy.
