Pumpkin Protein Waffles

There is just something about autumn. Pumpkins! Super flavourful, healthy and filling, a great dish to start the fall season right! These gluten-free pumpkin waffles are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside! Since these have the added boost of protein, they are a much more satisfying breakfast than waffles alone. So grab that pumpkin and get ready to upgrade your morning meal!

Protein Waffle Ingredients

1 scoop of Pea Protein Classic Vanilla

1 tbsp. Nutristrength Coconut oil, melted

1 tsp baking powder

30g oats, gluten-free

10 g coconut flour

50 ml coconut milk

Toppings

Coconut cream/coconut yoghurt

Maple syrup/honey

Pumpkin Waffle Method

  1. Preheat your waffle maker.
  2. Using a hand blender, blend pumpkin, egg whites, coconut oil and coconut milk until smooth.
  3. In a bowl, combine the protein powder, oats, coconut flour and baking powder.
  4. Mix the dry and wet ingredients to form a batter.
  5. Add a portion of the batter to the waffle baker, close the lid and cook until fully baked. Remove the waffle then repeat with the remaining waffle batter. (I got 3 waffles)
  6. Top the waffles with coconut cream/yoghurt and maple syrup. Enjoy!
