Protein Waffles, They Really Are That Simple!

protein waffle recipe

Many of you have been asking for my classic protein waffles recipe, and I don’t want to disappoint! This recipe is actually a simplified version of my previously posted pink protein pancakes (wow, that was so much alliteration) and can be adapted with your choice of fruit and toppings. This weekend, I opted for fresh raspberries, and they were DELICIOUS!

Protein Waffle Ingredients

Protein Waffles
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 scoops vanilla protein powder (I use whey protein, but feel free to use plant based)
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/4 cup egg whites (you can substitute with one egg, but I prefer to increase protein and reduce fat with egg whites only)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup almond milk
1 tbsp. coconut oil (you could substitute canola oil)
1 cup fruit of choice (raspberries featured)

Topping Suggestions
Chopped fruit
Shaved dark chocolate
Unsweetened coconut shavings
Sliced almonds or cashews

Protein Waffle Directions

  1. Preheat your waffle iron.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mix whole wheat flour, protein powder, baking powder, egg whites,  and vanilla extract until batter is smooth.
  3. Stir in the almond milk and coconut (or canola) oil.
  4. Stir fruit into the batter.
  5. Spray the waffle iron with cooking spray or canola oil. Pour batter into the iron and close the lid until the light indicates “ready.”
  6. Remove waffles from the waffle iron and serve 2-3 waffles. Add your toppings and enjoy!
