Quick Tasty Experimentation

I made an effort to use up my waffles after having an excess post waffle-testing (and having to leave for home).
This was a bit of the standard set up: Toaster-ovened with or without the Blueberries and Cacao Nibs at the same time, and accompanied/mixed with Vanilla Vegan Protein Powder mixed with just enough water and PLENTY of Cinnamon. Hot Cocoa for occasional dunkage.
Then I had an idea...
Gluten Free French Toast Waffles? Taffles?
After seeing so many delicious egg/quinoa bakes and other similar bakes in the food blog world I decided to just throw some of my favorite free range eggs in the toaster oven with my waffles. Definitely an easy and delicious way to enjoy a French Toast like waffle providing the essential morning fat, carb, and protein! Cinnamon and Cacao Nibs included. A little soggy and a little crunchy for the win.
Another morning I tried out making some high protein more blueberry muffins to use up the last of my brown rice flour and quinoa.
They were a little dry, but rose the right amount. Super sweet, tart, and delicious blueberry clusters were epic (I used a lot!).
Melting coconut oil all over the top makes up for a bit of the dryness and is super tasty.
Epic Blueberry Insides
I don't know if the recipe is sharing but I'll include it anyways for inspiration/if you feel like using up some brown rice flour and quinoa flour or quinoa. And lots of Blueberries!
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1c Blueberries
  • 1/2c Brown rice flour
  • 1/4c Quinoa flour
  • 1/4c Whey protein
  • 2g Baking soda
  • 50g Olive oil
  • 20g Agave nectar 40g Brown rice syrup
  • Dash of Salt
  • Cinnamon 6g
  • Contents of 1 Vanilla Bean
Baked for 27.5 minutes at 350ºF.

All of these Gluten Free treats make me extra happy because A) I've discovered that the less wheat I eat, the less my knee tendonitis bugs me when I ride (no advil or rocktape needed) and B) Aaron Gwin (best American mountain biker ever thus far, just truly came out of the woodwork this year and won the world cup overall) is gluten free!
