I love waffles. That’s all.

I need to explain something. I don’t like the cold. What’s the point in being cold when you can be warm. That’s probably why I don’t ski. BUT, Colorado is pretty much the most wonderful place on earth and since we do get cold, we really appreciate the other 3 seasons. But right now, it’s straight up disgusting cold outside. It’s not pleasant. It hurts to breathe in, your hands freeze the second you go outside, and pretty much 70% of people got in car accidents on their way to work. Well, I have a different reason to hate the cold. So I bought a giant mirror yesterday. Human size. So I had the guys put it in my car safe and sound, and by the time I got home, it had cracked. It got so damn cold outside, that the mirror wouldn’t even keep it’s straight shape. So it’s cold either cost me $120 or 7 years back luck. Either way, it’s a real bummer.

But life isn’t worth sweating the small stuff, no sirry bob. Here’s a positive note. I put together a giant lamp yesterday without breaking it!! I may be speaking too soon, because I don’t have a light bulb to see if it actually works, so please keep your fingers crossed for me. If it doesn’t work, I’ll definitely throw it across the room. Or at the broken mirror. I can’t earn any more years of bad luck anyways.

I leave for Vegas tomorrow. THANK.GOSH. Once I have a mirror that isn’t broken, I was thinking about posting pictures of all the outfits I plan on packing. I used to look at Julie from PB Fingers fashion page all the time because she would post her weekly work outfits and night out dresses and absolutely loved seeing the cute outfits she came up with and where she got it at. So I might just do that. If you don’t care about that and just want to see food, LUCKY YOU, I will have a recipe to go along with it, so you can just skip Vegas dresses. I promise they won’t be hoe-ish though, it’s too cold for hoe.

Oh. And I’m really craving eggs and jam right now. Yeah, jam. Sounds so good. That is all. Ktotesloveyoubye.

Please stop hating me for saying totes.

  • Yield: 3-4 1x




  1. Whisk together applesauce, eggs, vanilla extract, and coconut oil.
  2. Add tapioca flour and whisk until combined. Then add protein powder and whisk again to combine. Lastly, add baking soda, cinnamon and a pitch of salt and mix well.
  3. Pour batter into the waffle iron (greased, if needed) and cook until crispy. Be patient. Mine took less than 5 minutes per waffles. Repeat with the rest of the batter. My batter made 6 round waffles.
  4. Garnish with coconut whipped cream and maple syrup.


Yields 5-6 waffles

    So are we talking one whole cup of protein powder, or one scoop?

    1. juli says:

      whole cup

  2. Brittany King says:

    I think I did something wrong?? My batter is extremely thick and the waffles are puffing up really big which isn’t allowing them to fully cook in the middle or get crispy.

    1. juli says:

      what kind of protein powder did you use?

  3. Kristin says:

    I made these last night. Oh were they amazing. I substituted flax seed meal for the tapiocca. Added about a quarter cup of coconut milk. They were so moist and delicious
