When it comes to breakfast, we’d choose waffles over eggs any day! But because the classic breakfast option is generally sugar-filled and carb-heavy, it won’t keep you full for long. In this recipe, we’ve given the classic dish a makeover, and added in some protein powder to keep you fuller longer. With just two grams of sugar per serving and 16 grams of protein per waffle, feel free to top this gluten-free variation with a drizzle of 100 percent maple syrup or a dollop of nut butter for the most delicious morning meal ever.
