WARNING: These waffles are VERY high in calories - the peanuts alone are 800 Kcal. So if you eat the entire stack alone, make sure you get that good effort workout planned before munching these bad boys.
Once upon a time, many years ago, I was an avid crossfitter with a very strict low carb diet. I was hooked on heavy lifting and I did deadlifts over 100 kg - when you live like that, you eat peanut butter with low carb anything and you are terrified of the thought of eating a bowl of pasta.
I know, it's sort of hard to imagine that it used to be like that - but it was. Now it has changed, still no pasta for me but also no heavy lifting, but meals shaped like waffles several times a week. And so today my waffle diet inspiration was my long lost strong lady time.
Now let's get cooking:
Peanut and banana waffles
yield: 4-5 small waffles.
preparation time: 3 minutes
cooking time: 2 minutes per waffle
100 g peanuts
1 tbsp. olive oil
50 ml. plant based milk (I used oat - you can use dairy)
1 tsp. baking powder
20 g rolled oats
1/4 tsp salt
How to make peanut and banana waffles.
Blend the peanuts and oats, then add the rest of the waffle ingredients.
Turn on waffle iron, I set it on 4-5. No need to spray with grease, there is plenty in the batter Pour 1 spoonful the middle of the waffle iron, close it up and cook for about 2 minutes until it's golden brown.
Repeat step 2. three-four more times.
Serve the warm waffles topped with banana, jam, peanut butter and the works-
These are great for all of you heavy lifting, functional training people - since they are quite dense in calories.
I'm am very happy to all the waffles you guys are making, keep them coming and tag me on your instagram post or story @dailystews and I'll share your waffles and give you some emoji love plus lots of thumbs up!
Thanks for reading, stay home, wash your hands and make waffles!
Take care, lot's of love
