Proatein Waffles

Good morning y'all! Today is (almost) the first day of the fall season. Which means football, more football, waffles, and some football. The most important part of fall being the football. Just kidding, I meant waffles.

Waffles like that one right there. Wanna learn how to make it? Read on!
I've finally figured out a base recipe for my #proatienwaffle needs. I'm beyond stoked. This base recipe can be dressed up and customized any which way you want.

Basic Proatein Waffles (makes two)

1/3 C Quaker Quick Cook Oats
1/3 C Fage 2% Plain Greek Yogurt
1 scoop protein powder
1 jumbo egg
~1/3 C water, enough to thin out the batter

What I added to my waffle: a dash of cinnamon and some low sugar blueberry jam that I picked up from my farmer's market. Guess what, THEY SELL IT ONLINE! Which is possibly the best news I've gotten all day. Thank you Triple Delight Blueberries!!! Seriously, this jam is amazing on everything I've tried; oatmeal, cheese, crackers, toast, waffles, pancakes... yummmmmmy!

Oh, but back to the waffles.

Preheat waffle maker to desired level of doneness, I used a 5 of 6 because I like my waffles to be crispy on the outside and soft & cakey on the inside.
Combine all ingredients in a shaker bottle or bowl
Prep the waffle maker by spraying with baking spray, the canola with flour kind is best*
Pour 1/2 the mixture into the waffle maker, cook until your waffle maker beeps to signal completion
Put that #proatienwaffle on a plate
Top with desired toppings

Nutritional Info for plain waffles with no topping (I got this by entering the ingredients on MyFitnessPal) per waffle

*I have never gotten a #proateinwaffle out of the waffle maker in one piece without this spray!
