Zucchini Blender Waffles

I love when new recipes just come about. Don’t you? I whipped up these amazing waffles this morning and was praising the breakfast gods for being on my side. Not only did the ingredients mesh perfectly but they literally may be my new go to waffle recipe for the summer while I’m zucchin-ifying everything in my life. Ha! These gluten-free, protein packed waffles have just the right amount of sweetness and can actually even be eaten without syrup in my opinion. Although, I did serve mine with a touch of syrup and fresh wild blueberries. It was simply heaven! This recipe is pretty versatile, too, and would taste great with fruit, nuts or chocolate chips cooked right into the batter. I suggest making an extra big bath of these so you can enjoy a healthy and delicious breakfast all week long!
