Fall is officially in the air and I couldn’t be more excited if I tried. It has always been my favorite season of the year and I don’t see that ever changing. Pumpkins are starting to pop up at the farmers market everywhere and you know what that means?!
Pumpkin Spice Protein Waffles
These Pumpkin Spice Protein Waffles might become your favorite fall breakfast. What’s great is that you can make a batch of these, freeze them and have a quick breakfast throughout the week. Just pop them in the toaster like a toaster waffle! Since these have the added boost of protein, they are a much more satisfying breakfast than waffles alone. Each waffles boasts 22g of protein!
Here is what you will need:
- 8 egg whites
- 1 cup Libby’s Pure Canned Pumpkin
- 1 1/2 cups of Rolled Oats (get certified Gluten Free to keep it GF)
- 2 Scoops of Purely Inspired French Vanilla Protein Powder
- 1 Tbsp of Pumpkin Pie Spice
- 1 Tbsp of regular or low calorie maple syrup (optional)
- Preheat waffle iron according to manufacturer’s directions.
- Pour all ingredients into your blender except the maple syrup.
- Blend until smooth
- Spray Waffle Iron with cooking spray.
- Pour 1/4 of your batter into waffle maker
- Cook for around 3-4 minutes.
I have been intrigued by Purely Inspired because it is 100% plant based without artificial colors and flavors. I obviously take into account the price and at only $19.97 it’s a great price compared to your standard whey protein powder, and it is the only truly organic USDA-approved (vegan) plant-based protein powder. This vegan-friendly, gluten- and GMO-free formula has 20 grams of protein, seven grams of fiber, and a fruit and veggie blend. You can use it in smoothies, shakes, brownies, muffins and more.
