Jamie’s post-run waffles

Looking after your energy needs
Waffles with yoghurt and fruit

Looking for an energy-packed meal that still feels light when consumed? Trail Run Ambassador and nutritionist, Jamie Millar, shares his go-to recipe for Protein Waffles: according to him, they’re super satisfying, taste great and are cheap and easy enough to make. The Trail Run team are sold…

Ingredients

1 cup soya milk (unsweetened)

17ml apple cider vinegar

1 tsp baking powder (gf)

1g sea salt

1/2 tbs maple syrup

1/2 tsp vanilla essence

1 cup rolled oat flakes

125g plain soya yoghurt

15 blueberries

10 raspberries

1 tsp chai seeds

18g vivo life (protein powder)

1 small banana

 

Method

Add the following to a food processor or blender:

Oats, protein powder, soya milk, apple cider vinegar, baking powder, vanilla essence, salt.

Blend for a couple of minutes until smooth. If too runny, add more oats. If too gloopy, add more milk. Once blended, leave for a few minutes to settle. In the meantime, heat the waffle maker. Then pour the waffle mix and spread evenly. Cooking time is anywhere between 5-8 mins. Keep checking now and then after 5 mins to ensure they’re not too soft and not too hard.

Stack waffles, pour yoghurt over the top and add fruit and spread over the chai seeds.

Jamie says:

This is a fantastic follow-up breakfast after a long run. 30 minutes of running will burn between 280-520kcal and to recover we must take care of our energy needs. This post-run breakfast takes care of energy needs and has all the qualities of a healthy balanced meal, delivering healthy carbs, enough protein, essential fat, vitamins, minerals and fibre.

Too much for one meal? Half the serving and save the other half for later – or share with a running partner. This is the perfect recovery snack to enjoy with a coffee and a blether!
