- Waffle Iron
- Wet and Dry Measuring cup
Adult: Help child plug in appliances and measure out ingredients.

Blend all ingredients together. The protein powder may cause the batter to thicken up so you may have to add a little more almond milk if it is too thick. Scrape the sides of the blender with a spatula and mix again.
Pour batter onto lightly greased and preheated waffle iron. Cook waffles until steaming stops or until golden brown. Serve with your favorite fruit and maple syrup, if desired.with strawberries and blueberries.
