Protein Winter Squash Waffle Recipe

1/2 cup roasted acorn or kabocha squash squash, mashed
1/2 cup egg whites
3 TB unsweetened almond milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 scoop Vanilla Vegan or Whey Protein Powder
1 TBS PB2 Powder
1/3 cup oat flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
Pinch cinnamon
Pinch salt
1 TBS roasted winter squash (kabocha or acorn)
1TBS Vanilla Whey or Vegan Protein
1 tsp. PB2
1/2 TB unsweetened almond milk
How to Prepare
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut an acorn squash in half and scrape out the seeds. Place on a baking sheet and roast squash approximately 45-60 minutes, or until browned and fork tender (this can be done in advance of making the waffles, even the day before).
2. Let squash cool and scoop out flesh into a bowl and mash with a fork.
3. Combine acorn squash mash, egg whites, almond milk, and extract in a food processor and blend until smooth. Add remaining ingredients (except for topping ingredients) and blend until smooth. If batter is too thick, add additional almond milk 1 tsp. at a time until batter consistency is reached.
4. Spray a preheated waffle maker at medium-high heat with non-stick cooking spray.
5. Pour batter until the waffle maker is ¾ full. Cook until waffle maker signals it is ready. Repeat this process until all batter is used. Note: the number of waffles this recipe yields will depend upon the size of your waffle maker. Just note that the recipe nutritionals are for 2 servings.
6. While the waffles are cooking, combine all topping ingredients and mix together until smooth. Place half of the topping onto each serving of waffles. Enjoy!
Option: Sprinkle with stevia (or your preferred sweetener) for added sweetness
