Apple Pie Protein Waffles

I love these waffles, and they sure make a GREAT post workout meal!!  Matt and I like to have something like this on a Sunday after our workout!!<3 I've made plenty of varieties, but these are my FAV!!!! :) :) 
Ingredients:
  • 2 cups oat flour (grind raw oats in a blender or food processor to make flour)
  • 2 Tbsp. ground flaxseeds
  • 3/4 cup whey protein powder, vanilla flavor (or I use 2 scoops Vanilla Shakeology)
  • 1 tsp apple pie spice
  • 2 medium apples/ diced (1 for topping)
  • 1/2 cup walnuts or pecans, optional (additonal for topping)
  • 1 tsp. baking powder, gluten-free
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 tsp stevia
  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 4 large egg whites (1/2 cup) beaten to form stiff peaks
  • 1 pinch sea salt (or Himalayan salt)
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • Pure maple syrup
Directions:
1) Preheat waffle iron
2) Combine oat flour, flaxseeds, protein powder, and baking powder in a medium bowl; mix well. Set aside.
3) Combine extract, and almond milk in a medium bowl; whisk to blend.
4) Add the flour mixture to the milk mixture; whisk gently just until a smooth batter forms.
5) Gently fold in egg whites.
6) Cook 2/3 cup batter in a preheated waffle iron; lightly coated with cooking spray, for approximately 3-5 minutes ) or according to specifications of your particular model, or until crisp and golden brown.
7) Place each waffle on a serving plate, top with maple syrup and enjoy!


Container Count: 1 yellow, 1 purple, 1/2 blue (nuts), 1 tsp


TIPS:
**I personally split this recipe in 1/3 and make 2 larger waffles, but it's also a GREAT idea to make larger batches to have leftovers::::

* To be more efficient, make waffles in larger batches and freeze leftovers. Reheat individually by placing in a toaster. Original recipe should yield 8-10 waffles depending on the size of your iron.



*The key to light, crispy waffles is to use the Belgian technique. Beat your egg whites to form stiff peaks in a separate bowl; fold them into the batter just before cooking.
