Spiced Chai Banana Waffles

Went to the Farmer's Market bright and early to pick up some supplies for the week. It was so chilly this morning. I came home and wanted a warm breakfast. I came up with these, hot, protein packed waffles that taste like banana bread. They are soooo good and they made the house smell AMAZING.

Shelly's Spiced Chai Banana Waffles

1 Egg, beaten
3 Tablespoons Milk
2 Tablespoons Sugar Free Vanilla Torani Syrup
1/2 a Banana, mashed
1 Tablespoon Canola Oil
3 Tablespoons Multigrain Pancake Mix
2 Tablespoons Almond Meal
1 scoop Big Train Spiced Chai Fit Frappe Powder
Pinch salt

In a measuring cup mix egg, milk, syrup, mashed banana and oil (applesauce or cottage cheese can sub for oil but 1 T divided between all the waffles is really not a lot) and combine thoroughly. In a separate bowl, mix pancake mix, almond meal (aka almond flour, aka finely ground almonds), Spiced Chai Fit Frappe powder and salt. Tip dry into wet and stir till combined.

Spoon into a non stick waffle maker. Cook per your machines directions. Mine made 9 waffle sticks. Leftovers reheat in toaster or toaster oven.

I don't think they make my machine anymore it's a Cuisinart Waffle Stick Maker but this one is sort of similar and way cheaper might be worth a try if you don't have a machine. Really any waffle maker would work.

Great on-to-go breakfast. Smear them with almond butter or SF Torani sweetened ricotta wrap in foil and run out the door.

They are delicious even without syrup but here's some topping ideas:
Greek Yogurt
Sugar Free Maple Syrup
No Sugar Added Homemade Whipped Cream
Sliced Fruit
Peanut or Almond Butter
SF Torani or Maple Syrup sweetened Ricotta Cheese
Sugar Free Jam
Sugar Free Caramel Syrup
Protein Ice Cream

When you post recipes, I am always wondering how much a serving is. Can you please give us this info?

Mmm, looks awesome. FYI, you might also want to add that Target sells a waffle stick makes (Bella brand) that's pretty inexpensive for anyone looking to purchase one. They come in pretty colors as well. said...

I just bought the Big Train Spiced Chai Fit Frappe Powder, I can't wait to try it and eventually this recipe!

Can't wait to try this. I'm curious though, I can't seem to figure out what kind of protein is in the chai powder. Anyone know the answer?
