Brown Rice Waffles? Yes that is what I said, but really aren’t waffles in general a great breakfast meal, but also for lunch, dinner, snack…..basically what I’m saying is that waffles are great anytime. That being said I made waffles this morning after 3 hours of training and they were awesome and I want to share the recipe with you.
Before we get to the recipe I want to tell you how I came in contact with this concoction. Recently I reviewed Iron War by Matt Fitzgerald. That book was published by VeloPress and they got wind of my review. From that review they contacted me and asked if I would like to review their cookbook titled The Feed Zone Cookbook…Fast and Flavorful Food for Athletes. This book was written by Biju Thomas and Allen Lim and is a cookbook full of easy to make meals that are so simple anybody can make them. There are no recipes with 30 ingredients. In glancing through the book there were 5 to 10 ingredients per recipe and all were whole foods that would help fuel any endurance athlete. Famous athletes that have benefited from these recipes include Levi Leipheimer and Timmy Duggan (both pro cyclists.)
My goal is to create on recipe per week from the cookbook and present it to you and show you a few things:
- How simple and easy the recipe / ingredients are.
- How affordable eating healthy is.
- Variety in using the same ingredients.
One other benefit to having this blog for the past two years is that I have been able to partner with companies that provide me with quality products to help fuel and refuel my body after I break it down to nothing. One of those companies is HoneyMilk, which is now being rebranded as CorePower. I have been a religious user of this product since I started training thanks to Coach and have been able to incorporate it into many recipes, this waffle recipe being the latest.
Go ahead and read the recipe but be prepared to make it and scarf them down because they are that good.

- Heat waffle iron.
- Mix all ingredients in food processor, adding milk slowly to achieve desired thickness (important to note b/c I poured it in and found my batter to thin so I added more rice flour) The batter should be thick.

- After waffles are cool you can spread almond butter, cream cheese, jam or honey and fruit and make a sandwich (I ate mine with honey and almond butter)
