Banana Protein Recovery Waffle Recipe

Summer is wrapping up and my goals of working out and eating right are also wrapping up. Wrapping up in a 6-pound weight gain and low energy, all of which I know are diet/workout related.

Bah. Not exactly what I had in mind! Kids have joined me at the gym recently and it’s fun to have cheerleaders by your side during a burpee session.

So this whole working out thing.

It hurts. Sometimes it hurts a lot.

But you know what? It hurts more when you are failing at something that you know makes you feel better!

Recovering from a hard workout means refueling with proteins and carbs. Throw in some BCAAs and I'm on the road to my next workout. Diet and exercise go together, right?

I was going to “wait until after vacation” to start things up again but I’m tired of waiting.

So here we go.

And nutrition is a big part of this plan. The biggest part, I’d say, for myself.

I’ve learned that I need both carbs and proteins to recover from those hard workouts. When I get the right amount of protein (approximately 30 grams after a workout) and some carbs, I do alright.

For someone who is trying to slim down, building lean muscle with protein is the way to go.

Recovering from a hard workout means refueling with proteins and carbs. My favorite diet plan involves a great breakfast including this protein recovery waffle recipe

These protein recovery waffles are out of this world full of flavor and stuffed with protein.

It’s like eating banana bread guilt free. And you know I’m all about the no-guilt life!

Set the waffle mix aside and prep your waffle maker.

Coat with a non-stick spray (I use an olive oil cooking spray) and turn on the heat.

Once your waffle maker is ready, get cooking!

Pour in the mix being careful not to overfill the waffle maker.

Close the waffle lid and wait. And yes, your kitchen will smell like a little slice of heaven while this bakes.

Top with your favorite fruit, nuts, whipped cream, syrup or Nutella.

Enjoy!

  1. Sounds yum! I use both chocolate & vanilla protein powders — depends on what I’m making.

    So did you hear? If everything goes right, I’ll be in Phoenix mid October to run the Craftclassic half (although it’s really Scottsdale).

  2. Brownies or protein balls are good. 🙂

    Suddenly everyone wants to know when I’m coming to their state! Hopefully you won’t be in Disney that weekend.

    I never thought to put protein powder into a recipe, Patty.
    I just use it in smoothies!

  4. Oh man! I haven’t had breakfast yet, and I can almost smell these after reading about them. I love the idea of putting protein powder in something other than a smoothie!
