the fit beast feasts: protein waffles

there is almost nothing better than having breakfast for dinner.  in this fit beast's world, most of those breakfast foods that i used to eat are off limits.  but not now! not now that i've fine-tuned my protein waffle recipe.  i have zero guilt when eating these and feel like now is the time to finally share the recipe with you.  i've tried lots of different protein powder flavor combinations and have found what works for my taste buds.  but feel free to try this out on your own.  the recipe yields only 2 waffles so you won't have to feel bad about wasting them if you don't like the flavor you've created.  but give mine a shot!

ingredients
1 scoop optimum nutrition cinnamon graham cracker whey protein
1/2 cup oat flour (you can buy oat flour but it's expensive--make your own with whole oats and a blender)
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 whole egg
1 tablespoon greek yogurt
1/4 teaspoon butter flavoring/extract
unsweetened, unflavored almond milk
handful of blueberries

combine the first 6 ingredients in a bowl and mix well.  the mixture will be stiff and almost like cookie dough.  at this point, slowly and gradually stir in the almond milk until the consistency reaches waffle batter.  mix in blueberries.

if you don't know what to do from here on out, ladle half of the mixture into a preheated waffle iron.  i skip the butter but add plenty of sugar free maple syrup.

eat clean.  live lean.  live better.  live longer.
