Easy Low Carb Waffles Recipe
Written by The Protein Chef

Picture this. You’re trying to low carb it and you’re on business or vacation. You wake up at your hotel starving, head downstairs for breakfast, see that traditional DELICIOUS serve yourself waffle maker every chain hotel seems to have which right now, to you, is the worst thing in the world but wait a second…this one says LOW CARB. No, just kidding, you were actually dreaming but today I’m gonna show you how to make some just as good low carb waffles from the comfort of your home (unless for some reason you travel with a waffle maker)!

This recipe will usually make around 1 big waffle so if you want more or you’re making breakfast for the family just double or triple the recipe!

Now first take out a bowl big enough to add all of your ingredients into then add into it 1/8 cup or 14 grams of almond flour, 1/2 scoop or 15 grams of my Baking Protein or other protein powder, 1 tablespoon of your choice sweetener, 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder, 1 large whole egg, 2 large egg whites, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, and 2 tablespoons of a fat free Greek yogurt. Here’s where you can use a flavored Greek yogurt to change things up, for example today I used a coffee flavored one since we all know about my coffee addiction. Now just mix everything together, turn your waffle iron on, coat it with some non-stick cooking spray, pour your mix in, and wait.

My $17 Oster Waffler Maker (I’ve had it for years…can’t beat the price):

Minus the 2 grams of fiber this whole recipe has only 5 grams of carbs and it seriously tastes just as good, if not better than a high carb waffle. I’d love to talk more about how good this waffle is but it’s staring at me about 2 feet away and I’m starving. STAY HEALTHY!

Here is the recipe:

  • 1/8 Cup (14g) Almond Flour
  • 1/2 Scoop (15g) Baking Protein (or Vanilla Protein Powder)
