Some mornings, it’s all about keeping it simple for that first meal of the day. Scrambled eggs, a yogurt n fruit bowl, or even a protein smoothie I made the night before. But other mornings call for carbs, especially after a hard workout. Which is why this protein waffle recipe has been going down an absolute treat. And you know what’s the best part? You can mix it all up easily in a blender!
THIS RECIPE GIVES YOU A SERIOUS BOOST OF PROTEIN.
While the body craves carbs some mornings, we also know people’s days can require starting with a good amount of protein. If you don’t, you can feel sluggish, tired, and constantly hungry throughout the day. Which is why you can rely on the protein powder, egg, and Greek yogurt to give you that exact protein boost.
Depending on the protein powder and Greek yogurt you use, you should get roughly around 30 grams of protein with this waffle, which is great for a meal! A two-egg scramble will only give you 12 grams, so this amount is great if you’re looking for a decent protein source to start your day—especially if you’re a veggie.
