Grain Free Protein Waffles

It seems like it’s getting a little warmer around here..

Not.

But we decided to go for a hike and play at the park anyway!

Best idea of the day was to take two three year olds on a hike, by myself was pure genius.

Said no twin mom ever.

They had fun the first ten feet then I carried them for about a mile before I decided to bag it and head to the park. My arms were about to fall off. I need to do more twin bicep curls apparently.

On Sunday I made some pretty epic protein waffles.I made two different batches and the first turned out better in the second. The protein powder you use does make a difference! I used a whey isolate the first time and it was great! Then had the idea to make them again with a cinnamon bun flavor whey and they just didn’t cook right. Still good, just lighter and not as fluffy.

Ingredients:

  • 8 eggs ( I used 4 whole eggs & 4 egg whites) 
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • 3 scoops of vanilla protein powder
  • 1 T cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ tsp salt
  • Vanilla unsweetened almond milk- use until desired consistency is reached, about 1/2 cup.)

Directions:

  1. Crack the eggs into a medium sized bowl and beat with whisk or immersion blender
  2. Add the coconut oil, cinnamon, vanilla and salt and mix well
  3. Add the coconut flour and mix well—I pour it all into my blend tech.
  4. Batter should be thick-ish… If it is too thin, add a little more coconut flour.
  5. Spoon into heated and greased waffle iron and cook until light brown.
  6. Serve!!

Pretty fan freaking tastic.

Tanners favorite topping is obviously Peanut butter

Today I taught a boot camp class and a body pump. I did the GPP workout at Golds and PR’d my front squat by 40lbs. @#165 -- Yay! Spent a little time on the spin bike with a couple friends!

I really want to go to this spin class.

Took a Costco run, bee’s dance and attempted to tackle the mountain of laundry.

Bee is learning a dance to “let it go” from Frozen. It is pretty darn cute

Bee has been my little helper as of late. She loves to bake and asks me everyday if she can help me cook. Who am I to say no to this face?

Almond butter, maple syrup and strawberries!
