  • Most of your sides are with oatmeal what contains a good amount of fiber, but it doesn’t really fit into my low carb diet.
    I use soja flour (it contains 37 grams of protein, and just 23 gram of carbs per 100 grams).

    And instead of a banana, and cottage cheese, I use banana flavored protein powder, and quark.
    This way I cut down on carbs, but increase the amount of protein.

    Here in the Netherlands it’s pretty difficult to find some ingredients.

    But so far your dishes taste delicious! thanks man!

  • These are great! I had to use chocolate protein cause I ran out of vanilla but man were these good. I put frozen strawberries in the microwave to top my waffle and ended up eating the whole waffle before the strawberries were done. Thanks for the recipe!
