Vegan Strawberry Protein Waffles

I think it is safe to say that I am now waffle obsessed - I have used my waffle iron so much over the past few months I had to send it off for repairs! I've been having so much fun playing around with different variations and here is my recipe for delicious strawberry flavour vegan protein waffles.

Vegan Strawberry Protein Waffles

I like to keep my protein intake fairly high to help with muscle gain and repair and have luckily not found hitting my protein targets much of a struggle since going vegan. These waffles are made using strawberry flavoured protein powder from The Protein Works and for a stack of these waffles you have more than 30g of complete plant-based protein to help fuel your body for whatever the day brings your way.

Although I used strawberry flavoured protein powder, they still looked like regular coloured waffles - so to make the perfect pink colour I used a teaspoon of pink pitaya powder from Super U. My favourite way to top these waffles is with some fresh strawberries, vegan white chocolate, and a load of sweet syrup.
