So my biggest weakness and struggle has always been the sweets!!  Annnnddd I just LOVE breakfast foods!  Mainly pancakes and waffles lol hehe  So I occasionally need to come up with some magnificent concoctions that kill these crazy  cravings!  These hit the spot, let me tell ya!  I was licking the spatula clean while i was making the batter…  And as it cooked on the wafflle iron i could smell the delicious chocolately concoction!  Literally stared at it until it was ready!!

So they key to maing really good waffles is to have a good waffle iron!  My sis got me this Krups iron for Christmas and its great! mess free and easy to clean!  Def recommend it!

Now, if you don’t have a waffle iron, you can make these into pancakes as well… But sometimes its fun to have waffle shaped foods! hehe

Ok so on to the recipe…  I used Cellucor’s cinnamon swirl protein for these.  You could just as easily use any other brand, however those of you that have taken my advice and bought this protein (and the PB marshamlow flavor) know just how tasty and creamy the protein is… And you can use my promo code KPOW to get a discount on their site too!

Ok so here we go…  Literally takes like 5 min to make!  I hope yall enjoy and salivate over them like I did… .

1 scoop of Cinnamon Swirl whey protein powder

1/4c egg whites

1/2tsp baking powder

1tsp cinnamon

1tsp vanilla extract

2tbsp plain greek yogurt (or unsweetened apple sauce)

2-3 stevia packets

2tbsp of almond milk

1tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

Mix all the ingredients together while waffle iron is heating.  Whisk well for a couple of minutes…  Try not to lick it all before u get the chance to cook it :p

Cook for about 3 minutes in your waffle iron…  Tip: they cook a bit faster than normal wheat/flour waffles.

  1. I have a question about your contest prep diet? I am competing for the first time in may and I’m having a hard time with my sweets I tend to eat sweets like a few pieces of chocolate a couple times a week right now. I’m 6 weeks out and I cheating to much other then the chocolate my diet is REALLY clean. Am I still okay? Do you ever cheat while in competition prep? I’m doing this on my own and I’m freaking out that I’m not even going to look like I fit in. Please help
