Easy Protein Waffles

2 Waffles217 cals

It’s been a minute since we’ve used our waffle maker so today we’re bringing it back with some Easy Protein Waffles! This healthy breakfast recipe tastes just like the real thing and is made with 5 simple ingredients you probably already have.

Start this one by taking out either a blender or food processor. If you don’t have either, here’s a link to the food processor we’ve been using for a decade!

Add right into whatever you’re using 1/2 cup of rolled oats, 1 large egg, 1 large egg white, 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt or cottage cheese, 1 scoop of a good tasting protein powder, 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder, and optionally for some flavor 1 teaspoon of a sweetener, and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract.

Flavor tip? Mix and match your Greek yogurt and protein powder for endless protein waffle variations! Chocolate protein powder with chocolate Greek yogurt, vanilla protein powder with banana cream Greek yogurt, and so on.

Process or blend all of those ingredients together until smooth.

Next, take out your waffle maker, turn it on, and coat it with some non-stick cooking spray. Yes, I’m still using my original cheap waffle maker that takes forever to clean.

Pour your mix in once it heats up and let your protein waffle cook for a couple minutes or until your waffle maker says it’s ready!

Depending on the size of your easy protein waffles, you should be able to get around 2 with this recipe.

Did you know that to make homemade oat flour all you need to do is blend or process your rolled oats until they look like flour? This would come in handy for this recipe and allow you to mix everything together without having to process or blend it!

Protein Waffles Tips

  1. Add into or on top of your waffles some fresh chopped up fruit, nuts, chocolate chips, or anything else you want.
  2. They taste great cold and/or can be microwaved if you make them the night before!
  3. Double or triple the recipe to make enough for the whole family using the scale in the recipe card below.

One of my favorite toppings for these? Some Healthy Protein Frosting!

    I have gestational diabetes, and sometimes I want something other than eggs. This recipe was perfect! I used the Oikos triple zero vanilla yogurt since that’s what I had on hand. Did not add sweetener just vanilla. Delicious!

    These waffles are my 9 year old sons favorite. He gobbles the whole batch up all by himself!

    If I wanted to use whole eggs would I use 1 or 2 for the basic mixture? I only ask as I tried a basic waffle recipe and it came out very “eggy” tasting.

    • Derek Howes on May 10, 2023 at 6:51 pm

      I’d stick with 1 but add a bit more Greek yogurt.

  5. Andrew on February 1, 2023 at 10:10 pm

    Are the macros on this for one waffle or for both?

    • Derek Howes on February 10, 2023 at 1:13 pm

      Hi Andrew! Listed calories are Per Waffle.

  6. Fernando on January 18, 2023 at 3:19 pm

    Excuse me! One question, by Cup, how much grams do you mean? Or ml? Thank you.

    • Derek Howes on January 23, 2023 at 10:47 am

      Hi Fernando! You can click “Metric” within the recipe card on any recipe for these conversions. Hope this helps my friend!

      • Fernando on January 27, 2023 at 7:30 am

        Ohh sorry, didn’t see it! Thank you very much!!!

    How do you store these if you want to eat another day?

    • Derek Howes on November 30, 2022 at 6:24 pm

      The cooked waffles? I’ve typically stored extra servings in either a closed container or sealable bag with the air removed. Never an issue!

    Of course it doesn’t taste like the best waffles ever, but they still taste amazing for the amount of protein and calories.

  9. mike on August 5, 2022 at 1:25 pm

    can non-fat greek yogurt be used, like Oikos triple Zero? or will not having the fat from the yogurt mess up the final product?

    • Derek Howes on August 22, 2022 at 6:24 pm

      Non-fat is perfect and is almost always what I use.

    Been using this recipe for years. Absolutely love it!!
    Can’t have eggs anymore though due to dietary issues. What would you suggest substituting the eggs for?

    • Derek Howes on August 23, 2022 at 10:32 am

      Thanks Leonie! I’ve not tried it with this one but I’ve had success substituting eggs with banana and unsweetened apple sauce.
