Protein - Fruit Waffles

Do you ever get sick of just drinking protein shakes in the morning?  Well, I do!  I decided to use my waffle iron and make protein waffles filled with fruit and ground flax seed.  They are great!

I start out with the waffle iron getting hot and spray it with Pam.  In the meantime I mix up the following ingredients to equal 1 cup.

1/2 cup of  pancake mix ( I like buttermilk Bisquick)
1 scoop of Whey protein - vanilla flavor
1 teaspoon of real pure vanilla or extract will work too! (optional)
2 heaping tablespoons of ground flax seed which will digest better than seeds.
1/4 cup of fresh blueberries and/or strawberries - not too many or the batter will be too thin
You can use regular milk, coconut or almond milk - just enough to get the batter to the right consistency...I prefer a blend of coconut and almond milk.....approx. 1/4 cup or less.

Makes 2 waffles

Top with pure maple syrup in moderation!
