Hey guys! Nick here.

MY OTHER RECIPES


I’m so excited to meet you and thrilled to work with Damn Delicious on this exciting expansion. I hope you enjoy making these recipes as much as I do creating them (and eating them, of course). So let’s get right to it!

Now sometimes we all need a healthy breakfast option. Just once in a while. I am definitely not against a doughnut, or three.

But breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and having a well balanced breakfast has been proven to stabilize energy levels preventing that mid-morning crash, cut sugar cravings and help cut additional snacking that can lead to unwanted weight gain.

So for my very first recipe, I’m bringing you one of my absolute favorites. Protein waffles. I promise you – they don’t taste any different to a regular waffle. Best of all, these are packed full of protein and good carbohydrates without the addition of protein powder. Instead, the eggs and cottage cheese give you all the protein you need.

You can easily double, triple or quadruple the recipe, and pretty much do anything with them. Freeze them for later, take them on the go, pack them in lunch boxes for the kids, or use them for a fun Sunday brunch with friends and family. These waffles are also practically effortless with the use of a blender. From there, simply pour the batter into the waffle maker. See, there’s only one blender to clean now.

So what are you waiting for? Let’s make some waffles! And don’t forget to hit me up on social media – tag me and tweet me your waffles and creations. I would love to hear your stories!
