Happy Sunday! I can’t even explain how nice it is to not be traveling at all this month! I’ve truly learned to appreciate my weekends and take full advantage of my days off.
What’s on this mornings menu? My Basic Blueberry Waffles! After 48 hours of intense leg exercise (7 miler Friday plus 2 hours of hiking yesterday) my legs are completely shot and my body is hungry for fuel….. And by fuel I mean carbs. I know, I know, protein is important for muscle repair, but with my appetite in full gear I need a little something extra special this morning (yes I got plenty of protein in last night!).
My Basic Blueberry Waffles are simple, sweet, and perfect for this chilly Arizona morning…. Yes IT’S COLD! Heat up your waffle maker and kick your appetite into high gear! I know you are going to want to try these!
Ingredients: makes 1 large waffle
- 1/3 cup Trader Joe’s Multigrain Baking Mix
- 1 egg white
- 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 over-ripe banana, mashed
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- Pinch of cinnamon
- Honey to taste
- 1/4 cup frozen blueberries
Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl except the honey and blueberries. Allow your waffle to cook until golden brown (don’t forget to add a little cooking spray to prevent sticking!). Heat your blueberries in the microwave until soft and warm, about 30 seconds. There should be a little juice in the bottom of your blueberry bowl! Once your waffle has finished, pour your blueberries over the top, add a drizzle of honey to sweeten it up, and finish with a little sprinkle of cinnamon on top.
These waffles are perfect to curb a sweet tooth, but not so sweet that you’ll be regretting your Sunday morning decision. Enjoy and have a fantastic Sunday!
