Waffles have gotten a bad reputation because typically they are prepared with processed ingredients and covered in excess butter and sugary syrups. Well, not on my watch! My Lemon Blueberry Protein Waffles are just as delicious but are made with wholesome ingredients, no sugar and only 4.5 grams of fat. They have the perfect combo of sweet and zesty for a perfectly refreshing way to start your day (or any time of day, really)! They are even delicious eaten cold.
Typically when I write my recipes, I will just list a generic whey, casein or blended protein in the ingredients. However, every once in a while I come across a protein that I just can’t help but mention, and Jamie Eason’s signature protein line has led me to do just that! Enjoy!
