3 Scoops Sprout Living Pumpkin Protein
2 Tsp Terrasoul Vanilla Bean Powder
1/2 C chopped unsalted sunflower seeds
2 tsp Bobs Red Mill baking soda

2 C organic frozen blueberries
2 super ripe bananas

•Waffle iron
•Hand held electric mixer
•Mixing Bowls, measuring spoons, rubber spatulas, etc.
•Non-Stick Coconut Oil Spray

The Game Plan:

~Preheat waffle iron.

~In a small bowl or mug:
•measure out coconut oil and melt for 30 seconds in microwave. Set aside.

~In small bowl:
•Measure frozen blueberries and set out on counter to soften slightly.

~In small bowl or mug:
•measure out baking soda, add apple cider vinegar, stir and set aside. This will activate and add some umphhhhh to your batter ;p

~In large bowl:
•Measure out almond flour, coconut flour, pumpkin protein, vanilla bean powder, sunflower seeds, sea salt, mix well. Set aside.

~In medium bowl:
•Place bananas, coconut milk, coconut oil, vanilla extract. Using a hand held masher, mash everything together. Set aside.

~In a medium size mixing bowl:
•Measure out liquid egg whites and whip with electric mixer to medium-stiff peaks. Set aside.

~Now bring it all home:
•Using a large rubber spatula—>Fold mashed-banana mixture into flour-nut mixture. Mix well. Stir in apple cider vinegar mixture. Fold in blueberries. Throughly and gently fold in egg whites. Batter will be thick and this is perfect!

~ Spray waffle iron with nonstick coconut oil spray. Scoop batter onto waffle iron and gently spread evenly to cover your waffle iron shape. Close waffle iron and cook until steaming stops. Remove and set in a warmed oven while you make next couple of batches… Or serve and eat (hehe!) while continuing to cook remaining batter… VIP: DON’T FORGET TO RE-SPRAY WAFFLE IRON BEFORE EACH Batch!!

Serve with warmed fresh fruit, cinnamon-infused pure maple syrup, cinnamon-honey or whatever your wonderful-little-heart desires😋

Note: These protein pancakes have no added sugary ingredients. The natural sweetness comes from bananas and blueberries. So don’t expect them to taste like typical sugary waffles. They remind me a little of granola. These here waffles are more hearty, still light in texture, but filled with solid nutrients to be long sustaining and energy giving. The added crunchiness of the sunflower seeds gives a delish granola-esque quality. These are adapted from my mocha-spice protein waffles where I soak dates in strong coffee. When using dates, the waffles tend to be sweeter so if you prefer that- you can soak about 6 dates in warm water, omit water, mash up and add to banana bowl and proceed with instructions as listed. They will be yummy that way too 🙂
