Protein Waffles

I am obsessed with food that can be made with protein powder and these Protein Waffles are no exception.  This simple recipe uses only 4 ingredients to make 2 large waffles that are crispy, super tasty, and packed with protein!  Let’s go!

Some other protein powder recipes I have on the blog are Protein Pancakes and Protein Pudding.  You should definitely check them out!

Pull out your waffle maker and get it pre-heating and spray it with cooking spray.

This is literally the easiest waffle recipe you will ever make.  All you do is mix together 1 scoop of vanilla Premiere Protein powder, 1 egg, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 3 tablespoons of water, and a pinch of salt.  Thats it!

I then poured half of the mixture into the waffle maker and let it do its thing.

Protein Waffles Recipe

I’m not sure if you can tell, but these low carb waffles are actually crispy!  I was so stoked!

What I love the most about these protein waffles is that they only use 4 ingredients and there are no oats or bananas.

Kids love them too!  This is so much healthier for kids and they taste great!  My daughter ate them for breakfast this morning and I am elated that she has had a nutritious breakfast that won’t give her a sugar crash.

Another thing I am excited about is this sugar free syrup.  It doesn’t have any aspartame or sucralose…it’s made with monk fruit!

  • You can try this with other protein powders but I cannot guarantee it will work.  I have heard that Quest protein powder works well for protein recipes.

    1/2 cup was way too much! We don’t have a scoop and this was like play doh.

    Can you modify the recipe using the premier protein shake instead of powder? Just curious how that may work?

      I don’t think that would work

    I am willing to blame my protein powder but these tasted like sweet vanilla cardboard… very dry and hard, couldn’t even be saved by the chocolate syrup.
    I used Muscle Feast Whey protein Isolate. Next time maybe will try Pea protein powder

    I tried this recipe today and I’m in LOVE!! I use an unsweetened Organic plant based Protein. It is the best one I have ever had. I did tweak the measurements a little with the protein by adding 2 Scoops instead of one and no salt. The consistency was perfect. I have a small waffle iorn and it made three perfect waffles! I was good for 5 hrs! It’s a grate way to change it up from shake form! Can’t wait to try some fresh diced fruit next time! The possibility are endless.

    I just tried this with Body Fortress chocolate protein powder, and that was very tasty too! A little dry, but that might be fixed by cutting down the cooking time just a little (I cooked it 1 minute less than usual, but I suspect I could have decreased it more), and maybe topping it with butter, which I don’t generally use on my waffles. I also tried adding raisins, which added quite a nice flavor and a little “chew,” but the batter is so thin that it would probably be better to sprinkle raisins, nuts, whatever on top of the batter in the griddle once you’ve got it poured. Mixed into the bowl, the raisins all sank to the bottom of the batter and came out pretty much all at the same time. So my husband got almost all the raisins!

    What do you consider a scoop? I saw in another comment someone said it was a half scoop, but my scoop is more like a quarter cup.
