Energy-Boosting Paleo Berry Cinnamon Waffles

Happy Waffle Wednesday!

It’s been a while since I’ve created an original waffle recipe. In fact, a little too long, and I needed to change that stat. This one is particularly special because lately, I’ve been in need of a breakfast change-up. It’s not that I’m bored of my beloved sweet potato waffles or delicious bowl of paleo cauli oats, but I felt like I needed to switch up my nutrients a bit. To be honest, I was just feeling tired. I felt like I needed a little more sustenance that didn’t bog me down, but also filled me up to carry me through an early morning run or fuel me post-workout.

A lot of us complain about not having enough energy. Let’s be really, most of us complain about that, and I really was falling into that camp hard. I was starting to wake up every morning just not feeling recharged and rested like I used to, and I was in no way, shape, or form ready to go on my long run or to hit the gym. I was feeling worn out to say the least, and I mean the kind of worn out that no amount of coffee will fix (I was drinking wayyyy too much to begin with).

I decided to take a hard look at my habits and see what I could do to catalyze some change. And so, these beautiful waffles were born. The key ingredient? Silver Fern Brand’s Endurance Energy powder!

I’m usually not one for supplements, often because I can’t find many brands I truly align with, but Silver Fern happens to be the exception to the rule. I’m already a hardcore believer in their probiotics, and so when I discovered their Endurance Energy powder, I had to give it a go.

Essentially, it’s energy without the crash. When our bodies are trying to get through a workout and we’re low on iron, there’s not enough oxygen flowing through our blood to our muscles, consequently making us fatigued (Cornell University). The Endurance Energy powder has helped me to recover from my workouts a lot easier, and I even feel good eating this stack before a run because it doesn’t weigh me down!

What do you need? Simple.

They have a slightly sweet and tangy berry-cinnamon kick to them! Plus they’re so easy! I also made them single serving because there is never enough freezer storage so leftovers are a rare occurrence in my house!
