Ingredients: 


  •  28g instant oatmeal original 
  • 10g vanilla pea protein powder 
  • 1 1/2 tbsp granular sweetener 
  • 35g frozen bananas 
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract 
  • 1/4 tsp banana extract 
  • 43g Chobani nonfat plain greek yogurt 
  • 2oz unsweetened vanilla almond milk 
  • 1/4 baking powder (added 1/2 tsp when the first two waffles stuck but that may not have changed anything)
Nutrition

The entire batch is 189 calories. I was able to make about five 5" waffles/pancakes with the batter so less than 40 calories each.

Attempts:
1st attempt - sprayed the waffle maker, waffles stuck. Sprayed the skillet and the pancake had problem flipping. Didn't use any more spray and was able to flip the pancake. <-- is it the spray? 

 2nd attempt - no spray on the waffle maker. Result: 

 3rd attempt - 1 oz of almond milk instead of 2. Result

Instructions:

  1. Blend oatmeal into a flour.
  2. Mix oat flour with protein powder, granular sweetener, and baking powder.
  3. Place bananas in a separate bowl and microwave for about 30 seconds so they're easier to mix with flour mix.
  4. In the banana bowl, add greek yogurt and extracts. Thoroughly mix together.
  5. Add the wet mixture to the oat flour. It will be thick.
  6. Slowly add in almond milk until you get your desired level of thickness.
  7. Allow mix to sit for about 10 minutes to absorb the mixture and flavor.
  8. Plug in or turn on waffle maker while mixture is sitting. 
  9. {{Optional}} Depending on your waffle maker, you may need to spray with nonstick cooking spray. For me, I realized the best texture was without the additional spray but each waffle maker is different.
