Ahhh Sunday…the day of lingering breakfasts/brunch, unhurried workouts, doggie play dates, and football (for at least a few weeks longer). If you have some extra ripe bananas laying around like me, do yourself a favor and whip up a batch of these Banana Chocolate Chip Protein Waffles. I was channeling my inner “chunky monkey” with these waffles, which is why you’ll see the peanuts and whipped cream on top. Thanks, Ben & Jerry for the inspo – these flavors go perfectly together 😉
Oh, in case you were wondering – yes, these waffles are just as drool-worthy as they look in the pictures. Go make some. Seriously.
Banana Chocolate Chip Protein Waffles
- 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour (60 grams)
- 1 1/2 scoops vanilla whey (48 grams)
- 1/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips (56 grams)
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- Pinch salt
- 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (4 oz)
- 1/2 cup mashed banana (112 grams)
- 3 egg whites
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp unsalted butter, softened (1/2 oz)
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Pre-heat waffle iron to medium heat (I set mine to just below 4).
Mix all dry ingredients, then add wet ingredients and stir until just combined.
Spray waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray. Pour 1/3 of waffle batter into waffle iron, flip waffle maker to other side and repeat. Cook for about 4 minutes or until waffle is cooked through (my waffle maker beeps when it's done). Repeat with final waffle.
Serve waffles with whipped cream, maple syrup, sliced bananas, crushed peanuts, and more chocolate chips on top, if desired (additional toppings not included in nutrition info).
