Anybody who knows me knows I am obsessed with peanut butter, like sit-there-any-fantasize-about-
However, who has the time to get all the ingredients needed, take them out, whizz up the batter, make the waffles and then clean up the bowls and shit afterwards. Waaaayyy too much work for my lazy ass. Like don’t get me wrong I’ll do it when I get an insane craving. I have taken more painful measures to satisfy a craving and do not let me get started on that. But ya… on a more regular basis, I don’t mind something a little more easy peasy.
So OBVIOUSLY, I didn’t hesitate grabbing a box when I saw these frozen Van’s protein waffles at MegaMart last week. Just pop em in the toaster and are ready to eat in a jiffy! Just like bread. Now that’s what I am talking about. Convenience is my best friend.
More so each waffle contains, as the pack states ‘10 grams of protein with power grains” I like the sound of that for sure.
Now -Taste test anybody?
They actually taste pretty good. A little bit too cinnamon-y. But that’s just me; I am not a fan of cinnamon (total weirdo right). But I topped it with some choco peanut butter (Peanut Butter and Co “Dark Chocolate Dreams”) and it was winning.
Also one waffle has only about a 100 calories and 3g sugar. Again, not bad at all.
However, (prepare for the bummer) it does come with a pretty darn long list of ingredients and seems to be a bit too processed. The list of ingredients is below for you and does seem a bit much compared to the simple 4 ingredient waffles I tend to make myself. (Oh so now you want the recipe!)
So, here is my take on this thing: they are convenient, yummy and okay to have once in a while. I just like to stack a few in my freezer for one of those lazy days, but they are certainly not wholefood or very natural. And honestly, nothing beats the satisfaction of having homemade waffles you know are also good for you!
