The best part about falling asleep is {arguably} dreaming about what to eat for breakfast. If you are anything like me, those dreams usually include either pancakes or waffles.

So today we’re going to make one of these dreams come true, with a fabulous funfetti twist. Here’s how to make the best protein waffles you’ve ever had.

I may be alone in this – but fantasizing about future meals is a serious form of meditation for me.

If you’re nodding your head in agreement right now, you know exactly how gratifying it is to brainstorm dinner ideas in the middle of eating lunch. *Namaste*

While the smell of freshly brewed coffee and bacon sizzling on the griddle often steal the breakfast show, today I’m blessing you with something even sweeter:

Meet the new star of your breakfast table: Unico’s protein-packed Funfetti Waffles. 

But before we dig in, let’s address one thing. I know it’s on your mind.

Isn’t Funfetti for Birthdays Only?

Contrary to what your parents told you when you were seven, Funfetti doesn’t have to be reserved for special occasions.

There’s not a single debate that could stand up against the flavor being an iconic birthday treat… but if you ask me, every day we live, grind and grow is worth celebrating!

Starting with the moment you open your eyes and roll out of that precious linen cocoon bed of yours – you deserve to feel excited about the day ahead.

This playful recipe is designed to help you do just that – and let’s not forget about the added health benefits.

Protein Waffles, For the Win.

Unico’s Birthday Cake Protein Powder brings an extra dose of amazingness to every bite of these yummy protein waffles – featuring 24 grams of cross-flow filtered grass-fed protein in each delicious serving!

Not only does this bday cake protein powder smell like actual heaven the moment you open the jar; you’ll also be greeted by a sea of rainbow sprinkles swirled into the powder.

Talk about a magical beginning to your morning routine!

Unico’s protein Funfetti waffles are fluffy, fun and easy to make. Not to mention, the secret ingredient to jazzing up your next workout.

The combination of the formula’s fast and slow-digesting proteins keep your mighty muscles growing and smiling for hours after your first bite.

There’s never a wrong time for a good time.

Makes 4 waffles. 

Protein Waffle Ingredients: 

  • 2 scoops Unico Birthday Cake Protein Powder
  • ¾ cup Oat Flour
  • 2 Eggs
  • ½ cup unsweetened Almond Milk (or your go-to milk) 
  • 1 ½ teaspoons Vanilla
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 2 tablespoons Sprinkles

Protein Waffle Directions: 

  1. Power on your waffle iron. Set it to medium heat, or allow it to preheat according to your waffle maker directions.
  2. In a large bowl, use an electric or hand mixer to blend all ingredients together.
  3. Generously spray the waffle iron with coconut oil, vegetable oil or canola oil. This is a must for a flawless waffle departure.
  4. Use a measuring cup to pour batter into the middle of the iron. Cook for 3-4 minutes, or until your waffle is golden brown. My waffle maker has a green “ready” light that illuminates when it’s cooked to perfection.
  5. Remove + dress it up with your favorite toppings!
  6. Celebrate your first tiny victory of the day.

NOTE: Waffles can be stored in the fridge for up to five days, and reheated in the oven or toaster as needed. Wrap them individually in plastic wrap for maximum freshness.
