Bigger, Better Waffles

The #bigasswaffle has been going crazy among WW circles. I’ve had them a few times, but I find them a bit dry. I’ve been playing around with them and I’ve finally figured out my favorite way to make them.

I already had to use 1/3 cup of water instead of the 2/3 cup of water listed in mudhustler‘s recipe, I guess because my waffle iron is smaller than his.

Here’s what I’ve done with my latest version. You still get a 3 SP waffle, and the topping is 1 SP.

4-sp
I used Peanut Butter Quest protein powder for this one.
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed (0 SP)
  • 1/4 cup Kodiak Cakes Power Cakes (2 SP)
  • 1 packet/serving Quest protein powder (1 SP)
  • 3 Tablespoons egg whites (0 SP)
  • 1/4 cup fat free whipped topping (1 SP)
  • 1 teaspoon Nestle Toll House Cocoa Powder (0 SP)

Mash the banana in a mixing bowl (or a 2-cup Pyrex measuring cup, like I do). Add the Kodiak Cakes, protein powder, and egg whites and mix well. It’ll probably be a little lumpy at this point, so I add a splash of water to the mix to even it out.

Pour mixture into a waffle iron and cook.

While you’re waiting on your waffle iron, put the fat free whipped topping and the cocoa powder into a small mixing bowl and mix well. You’ll basically have to fold in the cocoa powder. It does take some time to do this (my waffle iron takes about 4 minutes), and it’s easier if you already set the whipped topping out of the freezer for a bit to soften.

Once your waffle is finished, put it on your plate and then spread the whipped topping mixture on top. Enjoy!

 

Note: I tend to use Banana Cream or Peanut Butter Quest protein powder for these, since I think they go super well with the mashed banana. I’ve also tried it with Vanilla Milkshake and Chocolate Milkshake and those are delicious, too.

Another Note: You can also use 1 Tablespoon of PB2 (1 SP) instead of cocoa powder for the topping, but that would make the topping 2 SP. If I use either the Vanilla or Chocolate Milkshake Quest flavors for my morning waffle, I’ll usually make the peanut butter topping instead of the chocolate topping.
