When I shared a sneak preview to these waffles on my Instagram stories a couple weeks ago, you guys went CRAZAY.
I am so excited the day is finally here to share them with you. September 1st. The beginning of a new month, the start of Labor Day Weekend and one of my most favorite months of the year.
I am amped that this month is starting with Banana Bread Protein Waffles because I know you are going to obsess over these as much as I am.
These waffles are gluten free-friendly (just sub gf oats) and they are packed with plant-based protein. They are sweetened with some banana and hit the spot when you are craving some sweet for breakfast.
I use ALOHA Organic Protein Powder in these gems. You are likely familiar with ALOHA now from those Fatty Dark Chocolate Coconut Butter Cups and Blueberry Chocolate Breakfast Protein Cookies and the frequent smoothie I share featuring ALOHA. Not to mention they were in the pantry reveal I did a few days ago, up front and center. Love love the ALOHA protein powder and their superfood greens powders. I add their products to my food and drinks daily.
I love ALOHA’s protein especially because it is organic, vegan, non-GMO, soy-free and if you don’t enjoy stevia it is stevia-free. As someone who does enjoy stevia, this isn’t something I look for but Jord on the other hand despises stevia and I am so happy to finally have a protein he enjoys too! You can use any of their flavors here too!
These waffles are super satisfying and they are actually filling thanks to the protein, fiber and fats in the recipe. Now let’s get to it.
