Celebrate National Waffle Day with Chocolate Waffles!

We definitely couldn’t let one of our favorite holidays pass us by without at least mentioning it! I’m talking about National Waffle Day, of course! 😉

You’ve only seen me mention waffles probably about 872 times, so you’ve probably gathered that they’re a HUGE staple in the Powell household! And when my dear friend Erika Peterson of Clean Simple Eats mentioned that she has an amazing new recipe for me to check out, I jumped right on that!

Thanks, Erika, for sharing your latest mouth-watering creation with us!! 

Chocolate Waffles
Makes 4 servings  


2 cups Kodiak Cakes Power Cakes mix
1 scoop chocolate protein powder
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 cups water
4 tablespoons all-natural  peanut butter
8 tablespoons Reddi Whip
Walden Farms Pancake Syrup (Can substitute pure maple syrup or raw honey, just be sure to add in those extra calories)


1.   Spray waffle maker with nonstick cooking spray and heat.
2.   In a  medium-sized  bowl, stir together the Kodiak Cakes Mix, protein powder, cocoa powder, and water. Pour into waffle maker and cook to desired doneness.
3. Divide the waffles into four servings and top each serving with 1 tablespoon of peanut butter, 2 tablespoons of whipped cream, and syrup. Enjoy!
