Ohhh me oh my. I have a whopping confession for you all today. A whopping confession to go along with these whopping gluten free waffles. I like fun words, just go with it. So anyway, um… the kiwi and I BOTH did something last week that not only made us feel a wee bit aged, but also made us feel one word –> humbled. You ready for it?
We tried to bounce back into our old workout routine after taking several months off from real structure. It was a much needed break during all that transition time. Yep, the kiwi signed up for masters swim again and rode his bike to coach swimming on top of that. I took a conditioning class from my coworker, which happened to involve kettlebells. This is why it’s a whopping physical reality check and why I’m hoarding all the gluten free waffles today!
Because —-> total exhaustion and soreness are not signs of an awesome workout. Well, to me they aren’t.
They are signs that ONE ; you need to ease yourself back into certain types of training or totally create a NEW one.
TWO; you need to FUEL AND REFUEL properly in order to RECOVER properly from certain workouts.
And when I say YOU, I mean ME!! Or rather US! Like whoa!
Friends, do I as I say, not as I do. And slap me silly if we pull that move that again. Mmm k? But in all honesty, this got me back on the pre and post workout meal prep bandwagon. Gluten free easy to digest carbs and all! Hence these easy Rice Banana Gluten Free waffles.
Let’s discuss the whopping gluten free waffles.
- Like literally made LEFTOVER rice. Which makes a super easy to digest carbohydrate for FUEL or a nice way to REFUEL muscles with glycogen. All good all good! These remind me of my quinoa bread. A way to be resourceful with scraps in the fridge!
- To balance out the rice, we have eggs, banana, and bit of coconut or almond milk. That’s healthy fats, protein, calcium, and POTASSIUM!! The vegan option uses chia seed, still great source of healthy fats and protein too. YESSSS!
- A touch of cinnamon which is an antioxidant rich spice and aids in digestion by helping it slow down. You don’t want a crazy upset stomach pre workout or pre anything, right?! Nope, been there. Not fun.
- And last but not least –> they are FREEZER friendly gluten free waffles. Which means I can make in bulk so we can grab and go when need be. Slap some nut butter on them and you have an EPIC PB waffle recovery sandwich. There’s no excuse for improper fueling now. Right?
Oh and these are kid friendly. Cause we’re really are just big kids. No really, what kid doesn’t like waffles for breakfast? Okay maybe add some chocolate chips. More antioxidants, right?
Now, get yer blenders ready and heat up your waffle makers. Throw in some banana, rice, egg, coconut sugar, coconut or almond milk, and let’s make those whopping WONDERFUL gluten free waffles. Oh side note –> I have the vegan version in the recipes notes. YAY!
Alright now, these gluten free waffles have been made. In LARGE batches. Because they are so simple and can be stuck in the freezer so we don’t EVER have to go through that whole “I bonked” phase. That’s my husband’s code for… “I didn’t eat enough food and now I’m dying!!!!” Haha, kidding. Kinda.
YES!! We’re gonna fuel up and feed those muscles. All with simple gluten free ingredients you have in your pantry or fridge. Can I get a high five?!
