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!  What’s even better is that these are keto waffles, too!  Let’s go!

HOW TO MAKE PROTEIN WAFFLES

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

This is literally the easiest keto 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 sour cream, 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!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Heat your waffle iron on medium and spray with cooking spray.
  • Mix the protein powder, egg, sour cream, baking powder, and salt in a medium sized bowl until fully combined.

Nutrition per serving: 252 calories / 8g fat / 8g carbs / 2g fiber / 36g protein
  • 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.
  • I updated this recipe to using sour cream instead of water.  I found the resulting waffles to be even tastier.

    I used JYM cookie crunch protein powder and Fage 0% Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. Great flavor but very dry. Next time I’ll add more yogurt or almond milk. Thanks for sharing the recipe:)

    I made mine savory by putting bacon bits and cheddar cheese in the batter, then put an over-medium egg and some salsa on top. De-lish!

    I also tried making pancakes with the batter in a small, nonstick skillet, and they turned out thin but very tasty. I think if you omit the baking powder, this could be a great crepe recipe.

    Thank you for sharing! You’ve helped start my day off well! 🙂

    any idea on if these would freeze well? Id love to make a huge batch and just pop them in the toaster to crisp them up! thoughts!?

    I followed this recipe but used the purely inspired organic protein powder in the chocolate flavor. I ended up having to use about 2 tablespoons more water than recommended to get to the right consistency. These turned out great though! Next time I may add a tiny bit of cocoa powder to amplify the chocolate taste. Great recipe for keto!

    These were delicious but a bit dry, do you have a recommendation to make them less dry?

      I actually just tested this and I think adding a little less water and 3 tablespoons of sour cream or greek yogurt to the mix makes them less dry.

    Could have been my protein mix which I drink daily but these tastes straight bad. It was hard to gut one down this morning. Dry, flavorless with that dry protein aftertaste

    Do you think a plant based protein powder would work? I am not one for whey protein and I use plant based, but really want to try these waffles!

      Yes, but make sure it is a protein powder you like the taste of!

    I just made this with Gnarly vanilla protein powder and they are great. I just got a Dash mini waffle maker and I was able to get 6 mini waffles from this recipe. Thanks so much!

    The GNC total lean shake protein powder shake is excellent-French vanilla. My son came downstairs said who are you making a cake for? I made 3 thick waffles in my mini Dash waffle maker. I’m going to cut them in half and make a breakfast sandwich.

    I made these this morning g for breakfast and they are FABULOUS! The batter was very thick at first but I just kept adding water 1 tbsp at a time until I got a waffle consistency. I got two perfect waffles out if the batch. Added some chopped pecans before closing the waffle maker, buttered them and used Walden Farms SF maple syrup. Best Keto breakfast I’ve had in a long time! Thanks. This is a keeper.

    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?

    Have you substituted egg whites for the whole egg? Looking to cut the fat.

    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.
