Brown Rice Waffles from The Feed Zone Cookbook

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:

  1. How simple and easy the recipe / ingredients are.
  2. How affordable eating healthy is.
  3. 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.

Waffle Ride Sandwich

Ingredients: 2 cups brown rice (cooked)**, 3 eggs (beaten), 1 ripe banana, 2 Tbsp Molasses, 2 Tbsp Brown Rice Flour (or Potato Flour), 1/2 cup Honey CorePower, Pinch of Salt

Servings: 3

Nutritional Information Per Serving: 346 calories, 5g Fat, 153mg Sodium, 61g Carbs, 1g Fiber, 11g Protein (based on original recipe which uses milk and not CorePower)


  • 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.
  • Pour batter into your waffle iron and cook according to manufacturer’s directions.
  • 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)
Because my batter was slightly to thin I wound up with 8 waffles and 2 of them had to be thrown out because they separated.  Be sure to pour  the milk in slowly to create a thick batter.  Based on my waffles I would say that 1/2 c of CorePower would be perfect.
**I used Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice – Brown Rice which only takes 90 seconds to cook and creates nearly 2 full cups of cooked brown rice.

    I tried that recipe. Makes good waffles. They were kind of hard to get out of the waffle maker without falling apart, but I just needed to cook them longer. I liked em!

    Waffles can be eaten ANYTIME!!! Try this recipe out sometime:

    So the book itself is great. I made the Chicken Tikka Masala, which is basically a down and dirty method of making it, but it was good and QUICK to make!

      The first batch was difficult to get out but I think its because I did not let the batter set. Once it set the second batch came out with no issues at all.

      I tried to make sweet potato pancakes the other day but they were too doughy and did not cook up right. Will give that recipe a whirl. The Feed Zone has a sweet potato waffle too if I’m not mistaken.

      I am going with the carrot and butternut squash salad tonight.

  3. I wonder if it would cancel out all the goodness to slather them in syrup? I love waffles, I’ll have to give these a shot!

  4. This look really good. Should also bring my fart tally up for the day. I used to work at a coffee shop and made brown rice muffins every morning. So good.
