Cherry Vanilla Protein Waffles

I haven’t owned a waffle maker in YEARS, but was surprised to find the perfect mini waffle maker at Target for $10. Let’s be honest, you can never go wrong with a gadget that creates a fun breakfast, is an easy clean-up and is small enough to be quietly hidden among the other heftier appliances in the kitchen (if you’re not a fan of kitchen clutter, you understand).

I’ve also been on a cherry kick! My favorite fruits are those in the berry family, but I feel it’s always good to branch out when I find myself eating the same routine foods. New foods = new nutrients to take in. So far I’ve been incorporating cherries in my smoothies, on the side as a snack, and now, waffles! 🙂


Waffle mix:

  • 1/2 cup Simple Mills Almond Flour Waffle Baking Mix
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp oat milk
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 scoop collagen peptides
  • 1 tbsp vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds


  • Shaved almonds
  • Pitted dark sweet cherries (frozen)
  • Trader Joe’s Organic Vermont Bourbon Barrel Aged Maple Syrup


    • Allow waffle maker to heat up
    • Combine all waffle mix ingredients until well blended
    • Transfer mix to glass measuring cup (for easier pouring)
    • Spray waffle maker cooking surface with cooking spray. Pour mix and cook per waffle maker’s instructions 
    • Warm up frozen cherries and top waffles with cherries, almonds & maple syrup!
