Protein Waffle & Egg Sandwich Recipe

Y'all know I have three true loves in this world. 
1. My cute husband. 
2. Breakfast foods. 
3. ALDI.
Who can relate?! 

Today I am excited to share how I am elevating our breakfast game with my favorite new ingredient - Aunt Maple's Protein Pancake Mix from ALDI! 

I recently started training for a race I will be running on my 30th birthday. With this in mind, I am eating high protein foods on mornings after I run, but I do love a good pancake or waffle every now & then. Aunt Maple's Protein Pancake Mix from ALDI (available February 27th for a limited time) allows me to enjoy a decadent breakfast while also being mindful of protein. 

I changed up the recipe on the back of the box a bit by adding in 100% pumpkin puree, which can be substituted for cooked sweet potato if that's what you have on hand. This addition bulks up your mix & allows it to stretch a little more. 

Here's the recipe:
Makes 2 large waffles
Prep Time: 10 Minutes Cook Time: 20 Minutes

1/2 cup Aunt Maple's Protein Pancake Mix
1/2 can 100% pumpkin puree or 1 medium sweet potato
1 cup water

Preheat your Ambiano Belgian Waffle Maker found at ALDI. In a medium-sized bowl, add all ingredients & stir until well combined. Add 1/4 cup of water if your batter is too thick & mix well. Spritz your waffle maker with canola oil & pour 1/2 cup of batter onto the maker & flip. Cook until your waffle is golden on the top - you'll know it's done if it easily slides off the waffle maker in one piece. Each waffle is 3 WW SP with the addition of 100% pumpkin puree - will be more with the addition of sweet potato. 

Once your waffle is cooked, set to the side & fry an egg just the way you like it. Once ready, fold the egg inside your waffle like a sandwich & drizzle with a teaspoon of Specially Selected 100% Pure Maple Syrup found at ALDI. 

Enjoy on a lazy Sunday with family or on a busy morning at home while you work!

Pro tip: If you're not a huge fan of clean-up, make a large batch of waffles for the week & freeze. Layer each waffle with parchment paper on top of each other & place in a freezer bag when cooled. Simply warm in the oven when you're ready to eat! 

Comment below & let me know if you stop by ALDI to grab Aunt Maple's Protein Pancake Mix. I'd love to know what you think of my Protein Waffle & Egg Sandwich recipe!

How long did you have to let your cook? I followed the directions and mine did not work out at all.
