Single Serve Waffle Recipe

I love breakfast. And I LOVE waffles. But I also like to make sure to get plenty of protein in the morning. So when I got some of the new Paleo Bakehouse pancake mix I was so excited to try it. My first thought was, how can I make a waffle? And then, how can I make it the perfect size to enjoy with the rest of my breakfast? This is absolutely delicious and so so easy to make! If you want to make a breakfast sandwich (which I also highly recommend) then just double this recipe. And I won't tell anyone if you smother a little butter on it. Because it's quite tasty that way too.

What makes one athlete more mentally tough than the next? And how do you get better at it? It certainly doesn’t happen overnight, as much as I wish that were true. You have to build self-confidence, and set clear goals for yourself. You must truly understand and believe in what it is you are doing.
