What better way to kickstart your day than with a plate of delicious, nutritious waffles? But what if we told you that these waffles could do more than tantalise your taste buds? Say hello to collagen-infused waffles, a delightful fusion of flavours and wellness. Here's a simple yet scrumptious recipe that combines the joy of waffles with the benefits of collagen.
Why Add Collagen To Your Waffles?
Before we dive into the recipe, let's talk about the star ingredient: collagen. Collagen is a protein that plays a crucial role in the health and appearance of your skin, hair, nails, and joints. Incorporating collagen into your diet can support these areas, and what better way to do it than through a delectable breakfast treat? LQ Collagen offers high-quality marine collagen supplements that seamlessly blend into your culinary creations, ensuring you can enjoy your favourite foods while reaping the benefits of collagen.
Ingredients You'll Need
For the Waffles:
- 1 cup of all-purpose flour
- 1 scoop of LQ Collagen powder
- 1 tablespoon of sugar (adjust to your preferred sweetness)
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- A pinch of salt
- 1 egg
- 1 cup of milk (or dairy-free alternative)
- 2 tablespoons of melted butter (or coconut oil for a dairy-free option)
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- Fresh berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries)
- Greek yogurt or dairy-free yogurt
- A drizzle of honey or maple syrup
- Chopped nuts (almonds, walnuts)
- Preheat the waffle iron: Begin by preheating your waffle iron according to its instructions.
- Mix Dry Ingredients: In a mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, LQ Collagen powder, sugar, baking powder, and a pinch of salt.
- Combine Wet Ingredients: In another bowl, beat the egg and then stir in the milk, melted butter (or coconut oil), and vanilla extract.
- Blend Dry and Wet Mixtures: Pour the wet ingredients into the dry mixture and gently stir until a smooth batter forms. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are okay.
- Cook the Waffles: Lightly grease the waffle iron and pour the batter onto it. Close the iron and cook the waffles until they're golden brown and crisp.
- Serve and Customise: Place your freshly cooked waffles on a plate and top them with a generous dollop of Greek yogurt (or dairy-free yogurt), a handful of fresh berries, a drizzle of honey or maple syrup, and a sprinkle of chopped nuts.
