1Kim’s Low Carb Protein Waffles

Original recipe from Kim’s Cravings.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 scoop (or serving) vanilla protein powder* (I personally like Body Logix’s Whey Protein in Vanilla)
  • ¼ cup egg whites from a carton + 1-2 tablespoons water
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Optional for servings: maple syrup, almond butter, calorie free pancake syrup, fresh berries
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Heat waffle iron.
  2. Stir all ingredients together in a small bowl, until batter is free from most clumps.
  3. Once waffle iron is heated, spray top and bottom of the iron with non-stick cooking spray and pour batter over bottom iron. Depending on how thick your batter is, you may want to use the back of your spoon to spread the batter evenly over the iron.
  4. When waffle iron goes off, transfer waffle to a plate and top with your favorites. Serve immediately or store in a covered container to reheat and enjoy later

37 Ingredient Gluten Free Vegan Protein Powder Waffle Recipe

Original recipe from the MinimalistBaker.com

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk and 1 tsp white or apple cider vinegar
  • 1 scoop vegan protein powder
  • 1/4 cup olive or melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar or maple syrup (or honey if not vegan)
  • heaping 1/2 cup gluten free rolled oats
  • 1 3/4 cups gluten-free flour blend
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch sea salt
Optional Add-Ins:
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp flax seed meal
  • 1/4 cup dairy-free chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup chopped bananas or other fresh fruit
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Combine almond milk and vinegar in a small mixing bowl and let set for a few minutes to curdle/activate. Then add olive oil, agave nectar or maple syrup and whisk. Set aside.
  2. Add dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl and whisk until well combined.
  3. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix until well incorporated. Test batter for sweetness and flavor. Add more sweetener or some vanilla extract if desired. I added a touch more agave.
  4. Let set for 5-10 minutes while your waffle iron preheats. (I set mine to 4 out of 5 for a crispier waffle, but adjust yours according to preference.)
  5. Once waffle iron is ready, generously coat with non-stick spray and pour on about 1/2 cup of batter. Cook according to manufacturer instructions and then remove and place on a baking rack in a 200-degree oven to keep warm. Do not stack and instead keep them in a single layer to ensure crispiness remains.
  6. Serve immediately with desired toppings. Store leftovers in a freezer safe bag and reheat in the toaster for best results.

If you follow me on Snapchat (username: minimalistbaker) and Instagram, you probably already knew I had a sexy watermelon recipe coming your way. I share all my secrets on social media, just in case you were wondering (wink, wink).

Instead, I have a super simple, summery recipe for you that’s perfect for when you want something sweet, healthy and refreshing on sweltering hot days.

I present, the Watermelon Slushie.

COCONUT LIME WATERMELON SLUSHIE
Prep time
Total time
Super simple, 3-ingredient watermelon slushie with coconut milk and lime juice. The perfect refreshing, naturally sweetened summer treat!
Author: Minimalist Baker
Recipe type: Beverage, Dessert
Cuisine: Vegan
Serves: 2

Ingredients

WATERMELON JUICE

  • 1 small seedless watermelon, cubed

WATERMELON SLUSHIE

  • 4 cups frozen watermelon (~ 3/4 of 1 small seedless watermelon)
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/3 cup (80 ml) light coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) watermelon juice (plus more to ease blending)
  • Optional: 1 Tbsp sweetener of choice (such as maple syrup or honey if not vegan)
  • Optional: Pinch sea salt

 Instructions

  1. Halve 1 small, ripe, seedless watermelon and scoop out rounded Tablespoon amounts (or cube with a knife) and arrange on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Freeze until firm – about 3-4 hours.
  2. In the meantime, halve another small seedless watermelon and add the fruit (leaving the rind behind) to a blender. Blend on high, adding a touch of water if needed (I didn’t), until completely smooth and pureed.
  3. OPTIONAL: Drape a large, thin dish towel over a mixing bowl and pour over juice. Then gather corners, lift up and squeeze the juice out leaving the pulp behind – there shouldn’t be much, but this makes the juice extra smooth. Transfer to a mason jar, cover, and refrigerate – should keep for 3-4 days, or more.
  4. Once watermelon is frozen, add ~ 4 cups frozen watermelon (I found this was about three-quarters of one small watermelon), coconut milk, lime juice, and watermelon juice to a blender and blend on low until creamy and smooth. You will need to scrape down the sides and blend on low to encourage it along. If it has trouble blending, add a bit more watermelon juice, but not too much or it will become too thin.
  5. Once the slushie is blended and smooth, taste and adjust flavor as needed. Add more coconut milk for creaminess, lime for brightness, a pinch of salt to enhance sweetness, or 1 Tbsp sweetener of choice to sweeten. Blend and sample again – repeat as needed.
  6. Serve in empty watermelon rinds or chilled serving glasses and garnish with a lime wedge.
  7. This recipe serves 2 generously. Best when fresh! TIP: Freeze leftovers into popsicle molds.

  7. Repeat until batter is gone (make sure you coat the pan with a little oil each time)

3 Ingredient Protein Pancake Recipes

Ingredients: 

  • ¼ cup (67.5mL) Almond Milk
  • ½ scoop (17g) Protein Powder (any flavour works!)
  • 3 (110g) large egg whites
  • Optional:
  • 2 tbsp (12g)  peanut butter!
  • 1 tbsp (15g) Chocolate chips

Instructions:

  1. Mix it all together” Simply mix your almond milk, protein powder and egg whites (and peanut butter if you choose to use it) all together. You can either whisk it with a fork or throw it in the magic bullet for 30 seconds.
  1. Throw it in a pancake flipper: Pancake flippers are best because your pancakes will be a bit more liquid than normal pancakes, so it definitely makes a difference when you’re trying to flip them to cook evenly. If you don’t have one, try cooking it in a frying pan or throwing it in the oven!
  1. Eat it for gains: Top it with some zero-cal maple syrup, your favourite fruit or a little light whipped cream. You can pretty well put anything you want on it and it will be delicious!
