Give a twist to your nut butter sandwich with this waffle sandwich! Instead of using two slices of bread, use halves of a waffle. Waffles make everything funnier and more delicious.
You may see the waffle green and it is not your eyes, it is not that you are color blind, the waffle is actually grind because I use hemp protein powder. Hemp protein powder is green color, I have not seen it white yet, if you do please talk to me, I prefer a non color because as you can see it affect some of the dishes. Besides the color that can be appealing some times, hemp protein powder is a high quality source, is high in fiber, low in carbs and naturally packed with Omega 3 and healthy fats. If you are going to use hemp powder, I strongly recommend that you use the vanilla flavor one because I once bought the non-flavor and it tasted awful, I had to sweetened it ASAP.
To actually make a waffle sandwich, the waffle has to be perfectly cooked because you need a firm consistency to be able to open it through the middle so you can filled it with the nut spread and banana.
I used Icadelicias Chocolate Coconut Spread, which was another seasonal flavor I did for February but you can use any Nut Spread. I added bananas because..bananas There is no better fruit to use with a nut butter sandwich than banana but you can use berries, kiwis, etc.
Finally, you can eat it as a sandwich; with your hands! There is no need of a fork and a knife.
