Pumpkin-Oats Protein Waffles & Current Workout Split

Today's breakfast involved a combination of beautiful things worth sharing.  To be honest, my intention was to have a huge bowl of protein pumpkin oats but, as I was mixing ingredients I started to crave eggs and veggies!  

 I do not know about you, but whenever I am in the mood for eggs, I have to combine them with some sort of bread, pancakes or waffles...  Anyone else...? I can't just have eggs without pairing it with a carb source... hmmmm, seriously; anyone else??

Anyway... My oatmeal somehow turned into Pumpkin Oats Protein Waffles this morning, and it was delightful.  The key to this concoction, is to leave the oats whole in the mix (I normally ground them.) These were so filling, so tasty, so good!  

Waffle Ingredients:
1/2 cup of rolled oats (not ground)
1 egg white (straight from the egg baby)
1 tbs of brown rice protein powder (use one of your choice)
2 tbs of 100% pure pumpkin
1/2 serving of dry cheesecake pudding mix (optional, but tasty)
1 tbs of ground flax-seeds
1/2 tsp of pumpkin spice
1/4 tsp of ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp of baking powder
a pinch of salt
1/2 cup of water

Preheat and spray your waffle maker with cooking spray.  Add all of your ingredients into a bowl and mix until well combined.  Pour half of the mix into the center of your waffle iron and close. Your waffle iron light will turn green before your waffle is done, so be sure to check your waffle and allow it to cook for 3-4 minutes total.  Repeat step for your second waffle.  Enjoy every bite!

So good, highly recommend you make these ASAP... Yum, yum!

Anyway, I have not shared work out things on the blog in a while so I figured I would include my current workout split on here.
I currently workout six days a week with an active rest day on Sundays.  Our active rest days consist of doing things around the house, a hike or just a long walk outside with our dog... 

My current workout split is as follows:
Monday: Legs
Tuesday: Back and HIIT (loving MAX30 cardio for my cardio)
Wednesday: Chest, Arms, Shoulders & 30 minutes of cardio
Thursday: Legs
Friday: Back & 15 min HIIT 
Saturday: Chest, Arms, Shoulders & 30 minutes of cardio

As you can probably tell from my split, I concentrate my workouts around heavy weight training.  I recently added 1 1/2 hours/a week of cardio, back into my routine because I have strangely been in the mood for it.  

I do workouts I enjoy, and change them around whenever I get bored with my routine! 

What are you doing to stay active this Fall?  Are you going to give my waffles a try?  Try them, try them!!


  1. Those waffles look SO good! Can't wait to make some!

  2. These seem like the healthiest waffles ever and somehow they still seem like they would taste delicious, especially with the pumpkin addition!

  3. Cheesecake pudding mix WITHIN these waffles?! OH MY GAAAAH that sounds delicious!

  4. These look really delicious. I might have to try without the waffle maker as I dont have one!!

  5. Looks like a super healthy meal with great ingredients!

  6. Yum! I totally agree on the eggs/carbs thing - I cant eat eggs without that pairing :)


Thanks for stopping by!
