Have A Healthy Breakfast With These Strawberry Banana Oatmeal Belgian Waffles

These protein-packed waffles will seem like a treat, but they’re the right balance of nutrients to fuel your body for the long haul. Have one half of a waffle before and save the other for after your match or workout.

I don’t know about you, but I’m always on the go in the morning. Sometimes, I’m so busy that eating a healthy breakfast doesn’t even seem possible.

But, these turned out to be the easiest waffles to make EVER! The batter is made in the blender for easy clean up, and if you have kids, this is a great recipe for them to help with.

Though these protein packed waffles are easy to make, you’d think then that the best part about them is the strawberry-bananalicious flavor… nope. It’s that they also include healthy probiotics from greek yogurt, fiber from oats, and nutrition and vitamins from eggs, making them not only a perfect breakfast, but a perfect post-workout snack.

Lastly, I want to note that the waffles are freezer-friendly! I’ve included notes in the recipe below on how to properly freeze the waffles so that you can simply pop them in the toaster for a grab and go breakfast :-)

Ingredients 

  • 2 cup Old-fashioned oats gluten free if desired
  • 1 tbsp Baking powder

  • 1/4 tsp Sea salt fine
  • 1 Medium ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup Organic low-fat 2% greek yogurt, plain
  • 1/4 cup Vanilla Almond Milk unsweetened
  • 1 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup Fresh strawberries diced (about 8 medium strawberries)

OPTIONAL TOPPINGS:

  • Strawberries and bananas
  • Organic peanut butter
  • Organic Greek yogurt
  • Chia seeds

Instructions

  • Preheat waffle iron and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Add all ingredients except strawberries to a blender and blend on high until well combined and smooth. Unplug the blender and gently fold in strawberries with a spatula.
  • Pour half of the batter into the waffle iron, and cook until steam stops and waffles are golden brown and slightly crispy on the outside. Serve warm.

Notes

To freeze waffles: cool them on wire racks when they are done cooking. Then line a baking sheet with parchment paper, add waffles and place in freezer. This helps them stay straight and perfect for toasting. Freeze for 2-3 hours like this (or up to 6). Then remove from freezer and place the waffles in ziploc bags. Seal bags tight. Waffles will stay good for up to 3 months!
