you’re welcome in advance.
the breakdown, greuling step-by-step to a T how i make my waffles!
side note, i wonder what i looked like to an outsider taking these below photos.. of my waffle making.. who does that?! THIS GIRL! because ya’ll rock and this needed to be shared, duh.
First, what you need:
step 1: turn on your waffle maker and spray it with nonstick spray – even if it’s a nonstick waffle maker. i use coconut flour spray from trader joes
step 2: in a hand blender toss in your oats and protein powder then blendddddd! should be a powder afterwards. blend, pause it, shake it up, then blend again is how to get the perfect powder.
step 3: add in your egg whites then water
step 4: blend again. shake up to make sure none of the “flour” is sticking to the bottom of the blender. blend again!
step 5: here’s THE trick! pour your batter over the waffle maker then KEEP THE LID OPEN! yep. let that thang just chill. for about 1 – 2 minutes actually! Then once you see the edges start to “firm” up then put the lid down and cook for another 2 minutes. I’ve found that cooking in open first for half the time allows it to fluff up better AND you don’t ruin the risk of putting the lid down and your batter leaking allllll out! GAINSSSS being lost! we’ve all been there done that! and ain’t no one got time for ruined waffles first thing in the morning.
step 6: after you’ve put the lid down keep it down for 2 more minutes.
then VOILA! your perfect fluffy protein waffle is ready and waiting for you to cover it with whatever your heart desires!!!
just look at that glorious fluffiness!!!!
ok, photoshoot done!! now you may go about your day! dreaming of cloud-like waffles!
