Fiber-Friendly Waffle Recipe
My latest diet/nutrition obsession: FIBER! It's a nutritional topic that I have recently spent a lot of time researching - and for the past three weeks or so, I've been tracking my fiber intake and have seen awesome results from paying just a little more attention to much fiber is in my daily diet.
On average, most people consume between 9-11g of fiber a day. THIS IS NOT ENOUGH! Chances are, if you have a lower fiber intake, your digestive system isn't as "regular" as it could be. Before I started tracking my fiber intake, I was one of those 9-11g per day people. Now, I have made the goal to hit 30g of fiber each day, and I'm really starting to see (and appreciate!) the results.
I feel fuller after each meal, I feel flatter + less bloated, and my digestive system is super regular and issue-free. If you have never paid attention to your fiber intake, I encourage you to start, so you can see the results for yourself!
So today, I am sharing one of my favorite fiber (and protein) packed breakfast recipes. These waffles are fluffy, filling, and have 11g of fiber!
Here's what you'll need:
- 1/4c buttermilk Kodiak cake waffle/pancake mix (or whatever mix you prefer!)
- 1 scoop protein powder (I love BPN Cinnamon Roll in mine!)
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 TB ground flax meal
- 1/3 cup water (or however much you need to make a thick but pour-able batter)
What To Do:
- Combine all dry ingredients in a medium bowl, and whisk together thoroughly.
- Add water
- Let batter sit for 3-5 minutes (this will fluff it up a bit!)
- Pour into waffle maker, and cook until golden brown!
I like to top my waffles with cashew butter + sugar free maple syrup. For even MORE fiber, add raspberries on the side!
