Cinnamon Roll Protein Waffles
Healthy and Gluten Free Cinnamon Roll Protein Waffles
Note: My initial creation and publishing of this recipe was done before the release of Oat Haus Cinnamon Roll Granola Butter Flavor. For even more of a cinnamon roll taste, use the cinnamon roll flavor instead of the original flavor.
Cinnamon Rolls are such a wonderful way to start the day. Every time a house smells like cinnamon rolls it reminds me of Thanksgiving morning. My mom and I almost always used to make cinnamon rolls every Thanksgiving morning to fuel our cooking fest for the day. However, cinnamon rolls are totally made for any cozy family morning and are certainly a great way to be reminiscent of the holiday season because lets be honest here who doesn't love the vibes of Thanksgiving smells, Macy's Thanksgiving Parade in the background in the a.m. and Football games in-between the dinner and dessert feasts?
While I do enjoy cinnamon rolls waffles are my personal obsession. I've seen a lot of influencers and recipe creators on social media take cinnamon roll batter from Pillsbury, Annie's, Trader Joe's etc., and put them in a Dash waffle maker to make cinnamon roll waffles.
I was inspired to take my own spin on this tradition and add a little nutrition twist on-it. Therefore, I created this healthy and gluten free protein cinnamon roll waffle recipes for all the cinnamon flavor in a waffle form.
First and foremost, you want to take a small banana and mash it in a mini bowl. I love using a huge fork to mash my bananas. It also may help to cut the banana into slices before you begin.
(Mental Health Tip: Mashing bananas is a great form of "therapy")
Next, in a medium bowl add in 1/2 cup of Buttermilk Protein Pancake/Waffle mix with the mashed banana. I used Pamcakes Pancakes Buttermilk Mix which is my personal favorite.
Once you have the pancake mix and banana ready, measure out 2 tbsp of Oat Haus Original Granola Butter or Cinnamon Roll Granola Butter and mix it into the batter with your 3/4 tsp of cinnamon and 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract.
You'll add in 2 tbsp of baking powder on top of the current batter. Pour your 3 tbsp of liquid egg whites and water directly on-top of the baking powder to encourage fluffiness in the batter.
Continue to add water into the mix while you whisk the batter together to reach your desired consistency. Let the batter rise for a few moments while you heat up your waffle makers. I love using the mini waffle makers by Dash.
Plate your waffles and enjoy with your favorite toppings. I love having greek yogurt with my waffles!
