Banana Protein Waffles, Roasted Pumpkin Seeds & a Football Workout. Separate–equally fun.

Hey all! I made two delicious things today and have gotten a few requests for the recipes. Soooo, out of the kindness of my heart, I’m actually blogging during my beloved NFL games today! RARE!

These things don’t go together at all, but in the hopes of saving a lil time, I’m putting them both in one post. Have at it!

banana protein waffles

Banana Protein Waffles
makes approx. 12

2 eggs
1 cup dry oats
1 ripe banana
1/2 cup cottage cheese
1/2 almond milk
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 packet of stevia
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla

Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until thoroughly mixed and smooth{ish}.
Spray waffle iron with non-stick spray and cook accordingly to your waffle maker’s specific times/directions.
Mine, for instance, is two minutes.
Top however you’d like–enjoy!


Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
yield varies by size of pumpkin

Pumpkin seeds scooped from inside of pumpkin
1 tablespoon Earth Balance {or butter if you prefer}
salt to taste

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Scoop all of the seeds from the inside of the pumpkin and place on a non-stick sprayed baking sheet. {If you don’t like strings of the pumpkin on your seeds, pick them off. I like the taste, so I keep them on.}
Divide the tablespoon of Earth Balance between the seeds, dispersing little bits of it somewhat evenly across the seeds.
Sprinkle with salt. Bake for approximately 10-15 minutes. Check on them often, as all ovens are different. Remove when they are light golden brown and crunchy to taste. Salt again if you prefer.

Back to my football watching, I go.

OH, which reminds me–

I created a football workout if you’d like to workout along with me today! Last Sunday, Sarah R. had the idea of doing 15 pushups for every touchdown we saw. After I ended up doing 255 pushups last week, I knew I needed to expand on it a little bit to get the rest of my body involved!

football drinking game but exercise instead

It’s called the Football Workout. Simple enough, haa. If you want to play along, use the hashtag #FootballWorkout on Twitter and let us know how it’s going! I only watch NFL, but it will work on Saturday with college football, too!

Okay, now back to my beloved games. 😀
