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!
