Spinach...in...waffles?! It sounds atrocious, but the spinach is virtually tasteless, and hey, it's another way to get your greens in.
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup almond meal
- 1/4 cup coconut milk (or almond milk)
- 1/2 scoop whey protein powder
- 1 cup spinach
- 1 tsp baking soda
- Liquid stevia to taste
- Nut butter
- "Frosting": 1/4 cup greek yogurt mixed with nut butter, cinnamon, and a few drops of liquid stevia
- Fresh fruit such raspberries or blueberries
- Pre-heat the waffle iron. If you don't have a waffle iron, you can skip this step and simply pan fry the batter to make pancakes.
- Blend 1/4 cup coconut milk, 1 cup spinach, and a few drops of liquid stevia into a blender until the spinach is completely pureed.
- Add in 1/2 scoop whey protein, 1 egg, 1/4 cup almond meal, and 1 tsp baking soda into the blender with the spinach/coconut puree. Blend until everything is thoroughly mixed together.
- For waffles, pour 1/3 of the mixture into a pre-heated waffle iron. For pancakes, pour 1/3 of the mixture into a pan coated with coconut oil (any type of oil will suffice, I prefer coconut oil because it adds to the coconut flavor in the batter).
- Add toppings! I like my waffles simple and prefer raw raspberries or blueberries on top.
