After a run, this warm waffle and protein ice cream hit the spot! Both of these combined for 462 kcals (waffle was 350kcals total) 55grams protein, 47 grams carb (10grams from Fiber), and 6 grams of fat! The gluten-free protein waffle is just 4 ingredients and full of fiber, and the ice cream is a modification of my all-time favorite protein ice cream recipe. It makes the same volume and same creaminess but none of the xanthan gum bloat that I am trying to get away from as I posted here – I thought I needed to give it up, but this is all new life to my ice cream game!
Blueberrylicious Oat Waffle
- 35 grams (about 1/4cup) Protein pancake mix (I used Blueberry SlapJacks – code REBEKAH saves you 10%)
- 35 grams (about 1/4cups) quick oats (I used Quaker gluten free)
- 7grams coconut flour (1 tbsp)
- 1/2cup egg whites
- 1/4 cup water
Mix and pour into greased waffle maker! Cook 3 minutes or until done (IT FLUFFS up and the outside crisps up a little, so it’s perfection basically)
PROTEIN ICE CREAM
That’s my basic recipe above! But I’ve found that all I need to do is nix the xanthan gum and use guar gum in place of it! And SAME results- still 32 ounces and SUper Creamy! WooHoo. It’s 110 kcals with 24grams protein and 3g carbs…
- you can use any protein powder in this recipe, I used Slap Whey Iso. (code REBEKAH saves you 10% on it)
One of my instagram friends also recommended using glucomannan powder which looks interesting to me. It’s marketed typically as a weight-loss product and used in foods like the low-cal noodles I’ve had before at stores. It’s also a prebiotic and helps lower cholesterol. So I may give it a shot! 🙂
Then Pair the two together for the amazing and HEALTHY waffles and ice cream combo.
BONUS VEGAN Birthday Cookies!!
One of my insta-friends posted these cookies yesterday! and They LOOKED so amazing that I had to re-share this recipe!
- she used my VEGAN Big Breakfast cookie recipe, but added in sprinkles and split it up into smaller cookie dough bites!!
