I “met” Genie (a figure competitor) on a fitness forum, and once my little blog project took off, I discovered that she has her own blog. It includes recipes, workouts, etc. Well, I came across this recipe for protein waffles. They looked too good not to try.
Today was the day. Here’s what was happening in my kitchen this morning:
I cracked open 2 eggs & tossed out the yolks.
I added 2 tablespoons of water to the egg whites.
Then 1 scoop of BSN’s Cinnamon Roll protein powder. I’ve found that BSN cooks the best.
I added a teensy bit of vanilla extract since her recipe called for vanilla protein powder & I used the cinnamon (plus, vanilla makes everything taste better).
Next, I sprayed the waffle iron with Pam.
I poured the batter onto the waffle maker…
I can’t NOT make a mess!
While that cooked, I made the ricotta topping. I measured out about 1/4 cup. (okay, okay, a heaping 1/4. I love this stuff! What?! I’m Italian. Don’t judge ;))
I added in some cinnamon to this for some flavah…
I also mixed in a tablespoon of sugar-free syrup to make it into some sort of maple-y cream.
I knew the waffle was going to be great before I even tasted it.
I topped it with the cinnamon maple ricotta and some more syrup…
This puppy was gone in about 2 minutes. I had to make another one to pack for lunch. Yes. I’m having it for lunch too :).
Thanks Genie!!! Waffle for lunch = Happy Mindy
