We can eat WAFFLES!! (protein packed and another GF recipe)

A good friend of mine as well as a successful weight loss coach and fitness expert, MariAnne a.k.a "Built" shared her wonderful protein waffle recipe with me years ago. I decided I would try it out this weekend on the kids with a slight modification of substituting the artificial sweetener with Sucanat. Success!

The best part was handing this plate of food (as pictured here) to my son and his delight with it. Marianne shares that these waffles also freeze and toast up well--so you can make a few batches and store in a container in your freezer for a great on the go breakfast--lunch--dinner--snack food!
