Red Velvet Protein Waffles
I thought I'd try my hand at something new so I made my first batch of protein waffles using my new waffle maker. If you don't have a waffle maker you can use a waffle tray, available online or from most baking shops.
I can confirm they were delicious! So much so that i've already created a list of 15 flavour combinations I plan to make.
These ones were red velvet flavour & were topped with delicious milk chocolate chips, light cream & sliced strawberries (as I now have a few more fats to play with than I did previously!) but i've put the macros below for just the base waffles in case you want them plain to save on calories. Or you can make a "skinnier" version using fat free Greek Yoghurt & Choc Shot (trust me they'll still be as delicious!).
