Waffles or pancakes are always a good choice – for breakfast, lunch, brunch, or dinner. When the scent of waffles or pancakes is in the air it seems like everyone gathers around to get them hot off the griddle. There is nothing better than the warm, crispiness of a homemade waffle, the tender, soft deliciousness of a stack of pancakes; it truly defies description. Slathered with butter and drizzled with syrup and . . . well, what more needs to be said?
Many who are limiting their intake of carbohydrates may think that waffles or pancakes can no longer be part of their lives. Well, along comes the high protein version. This recipe uses very few ingredients to add carbohydrates; most ingredients are high in protein. The resulting waffle or pancake is no lesser for it – these crispy cakes are delicious. Skeptics will never know the difference.
This is an easy recipe as well, especially if you use a blender. Put all the ingredients in the container of your blender and blend it for just a minute. It gives you a smooth batter in an easy-to-pour container. This recipe can be used for either waffles or pancakes. Note that the pancakes are thin, so making a lot of little ones is the best way to enjoy them.
Don’t assume that waffles are only made for butter and syrup. Many people enjoy them in place of bread for sandwiches. It adds a crispiness to your sandwich ingredients and gives a little different taste. There are many ideas for waffle sandwiches. Try chicken salad (chopped chicken, mayonnaise, celery, chopped apples, and chopped grapes), tuna salad (one pouch of tuna fish, mayonnaise, chopped apple, and dill seed), or a grilled cheese deluxe (sliced cheddar cheese with sliced apple). For those of you who love Monte Cristos – try them using a waffle! So many possibilities; so little time!
