If you haven’t noticed already from our snap chats and weekly sparks recaps we are obsessed with our waffle maker. We seriously use it every day after our Vitamix and coffee maker.

One day we got to chatting about making another waffle stick recipe. This recipe idea popped up in our heads. We enjoy a good cinnamon sugar baked good from time to time so we decided that’s what we were going to make. Plus we think waffle sticks are just too cute.

We love our cinnamon sugar donuts from our Purely Classic Cookbook and we loved our gingerbread waffle stick recipe, so we made ourselves this new flavor idea.

Few notes about the ingredients.

We used semi ripe plantains to help make the waffle base a little sweeter on its own.

We used pea protein in these waffles to add some more protein punch, but you can use any flour if you aren’t a fan of protein powders.

We thoroughly enjoyed this waffle recipe.

We’ve made it twice – doubling the recipe.

The texture was soft and light for the waffles with a slight chew. They are more soft not crispy waffles. But we are okay with that.

We also wanted to serve these waffle sticks with a creamy topping. So, coconut butter came to mind. As we started to play around with the creamy topping idea we decided to add in some yogurt to make it rich and creamy.

Plus, it’s a nice way to get a little extra healthy fats and probiotics in us. We used coconut yogurt mixed with coconut butter to create our frosting. You can replace with any yogurt you like.

For the sugar mix we did a mix of raw cane sugar and xylitol. We like to mix up our sugars. We know sugar is sugar but we like to get variety. Plus both our skin does great with xylitol. Of course you can use whatever makes you feel your best and happy. There are no rules.

Oh my goodness, these protein waffle sticks looks INCREDIBLE! The sugar looks so sweet–I’ll probably replace the sugar with Stevia and cinnamon! Hope it tastes just as good and will let you know how to turns out 🙂

What kind of waffle iron do you use? I’m in the process of buying a new one and I’m curious!

purelytwins May 22, 2016 - 2:21 pm

It is Cuisnart. It was wedding gift. I believe the person got it from Williams and Sonoma

You can use any other flour of choice or nut meal like almond to replace the protein powder in the waffle
