Delicious High Pro Vegan Friendly Waffles

Try something different for breakfast this morning:

Delicious High Pro Vegan Friendly Waffles

This weekend I fancied something a little different for breakfast, feeling a little bored of oatmeal I had a little think of alternatives and came up with… waffles! These wouldn’t just be plain old sugar and fat laden waffles though, I wanted a delicious yet nutritious alternative to curb my early morning and set me up for the day… here’s what I came up with:

Vegan Friendly Waffles

First I blended up about 50g of oats into a flour like consistency, then added in a bit of cocoa power, some flaxseeds, a little gluten free flour (around 25g) and the magic ingredient a scoop of chocolate caramel High Pro and turned up the blender again. Once all the dry ingredients were thoroughly mixed I added in around 250ml of almond milk, 2-3 teaspoons of apple sauce, some vanilla extract and a pinch of cinnamon. I didn’t measure out all the ingredients exactly but just made sure I got it to the point of being fairly thin and runny so that I’d get lovely crispy waffles.

After resurrecting the waffle iron from the back of the kitchen cupboards I dusted it off and heated it up to a medium-high heat. Once hot I sprayed it liberally with some fry-light and added in the first batch of my mixture. It took a little trial and error to work out how long you need to cook it for but I reckon about 5 minutes. I got 4 beautiful, crispy waffles out of the batter I made (they might look a little dark but it’s just the cocoa in there, they shouldn’t be burnt after 5mins!) then I topped them with berries, half a banana and a little honey to serve, delicious!

Definitely think I’m on to something good here, try it out for yourselves and you’ll see what I mean! You get a perfect balance of breakfast nutrients with around 25g of protein, 50g of carbs and few grams of healthy fats too from the flaxseed. And let’s face it who wouldn’t want vegan friendly waffles every morning if they could?!

Give them a go and see what you think, try experimenting with flavours and toppings too, see what you can come up with and let us know your best work!

About Roy Barber

‘I am aspiring athlete and fitness enthusiast, currently studying Sport and Exercise Science at Loughborough University, widely regarded as the best course of its type in Europe. I am currently a 3 time County Athletics gold medallist over the sprint disciplines at junior level and am working hard every single day to continually improve myself mentally, physically and athletically. With a great passion for all things fitness and sport, I hope over the coming years to forge a successful and fruitful career in sport, dealing with a variety of aspects such as strength and conditioning, nutrition and recovery. ‘ ‘I ended up at Loughborough studying what I am because I’ve known for a few years now if I was going to go to university, sports science was the degree for me, I’ve always loved sport, PE and learning about all the different areas of science in relation to the human body so it was a natural move for me. In terms of why Loughborough specifically, I always heard great things about the university, I had a relative who came here and loved it, and I was incredibly impressed with the campus when I came on an open day and fell in love with the place. Who inspires me to compete is a more difficult question, I’d have to start by saying my coach who has done a fantastic job in turning me into a 'proper athlete'. I am also inspired by a range of people in my life, from world class athletes to friends and family. Roy Barber is 20 years old and comes from a small Leicestershire town called Market Harborough
