These Peach Zucchini Protein Waffles are easy to make and are packed full of produce for a healthy and satisfying breakfast!
Breakfasts at our home are usually pretty quick now that Adalyn is old enough to eat and wants breakfast NOW! We have been doing a lot of cold cereal on the weekends which is not what we usually do. I was missing our delicious weekend breakfasts that we don't have time for during a busy work week.
I got to thinking about how I could make something unique that is filling, tastes good and is good for you. Along came these peach zucchini protein waffles.
Vegetables in waffles?? Hear me out. If you have had zucchini bread, then you know that you do not taste the zucchini in it. The zucchini provides a boost of nutrients along with moisture for a waffle that is moist on the inside and crispy on the outside.
Peach Zucchini Protein Waffles
1 1/2 cups of your favorite waffle mix (I use Kodiak Cakes which only requires water added)
2 scoops Purely Inspired vanilla protein powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup finely shredded zucchini
1 finely diced peach
1. Make waffle mix according to instructions (add water, or eggs, or whatever it calls for).
2. Mix in protein powder, cinnamon, zucchini and peach.
3. Turn on waffle maker and spray well with nonstick spray.
4. Cook according to directions.
These waffles turned out great and my husband, baby and I all liked them. I will be making them again. The possibilities are endless of the different kinds of fruit you can use too. I want to try banana next time
For this recipe, I used Purely Inspired 100% plant based protein nutritional shake which worked well in this recipe to give a boost of protein and nutrients. The protein mix is dairy, gluten and soy free. One serving has 16 grams protein and 7 grams of fiber. It contains a concentrated greens blend with broccoli and spinach. It is a blend of proteins including pea protein, brown rice protein and alfalfa juice protein concentrate.
