I love when new recipes just come about. Don’t you? I whipped up these amazing waffles this morning and was praising the breakfast gods for being on my side. Not only did the ingredients mesh perfectly but they literally may be my new go to waffle recipe for the summer while I’m zucchin-ifying everything in my life. Ha! These gluten-free, protein packed waffles and can actually even be eaten without syrup in my opinion. As much as I love a good old blueberry waffle with syrup this savory combo was perfection! This recipe is pretty versatile, too, and would taste great with fruit, nuts or chocolate chips cooked right into the batter. I suggest making an extra big bath of these so you can enjoy a healthy and delicious breakfast all week long!
