These healthy waffles are a great way to feed your pre-noon treat craving with almost none of the guilt. These are low-carb, high-protein plates of fun.
This protein powder waffle recipe is your new favorite breakfast dish.
The use of coconut flour in combination with protein powder make these a much healthier alternative to regular breakfast waffles. Plus, the coconut flour prevents the protein powder from making the waffles completely dry and brittle.
It all comes together to make something far more dough-like, and satisfying to eat.
However if you do find that the batter is proving to be a bit dry then add a tiny bit more coconut oil. While this will add a little bit of fat to it, it will make it moisten it a bit and make it easier to mix and fit into the waffle iron.
I’ve used vanilla protein powder for this recipe, but feel free to experiment here. I’ve seen people using chocolate, toffee… even mint choc chip protein powder. Furthermore, you can top it off with your choice of maple syrup, honey, yogurt or berries.
Go nuts and let me know how you get on!
This recipe is just for one waffle, but once you get the hang of it try scaling up if you’re sharing (or just feeling greedy).
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp coconut flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp coconut oil melted
- 2-3 tbsp water
Start by greasing your waffle iron with oil and preheating it. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the coconut flour, protein powder, baking powder and egg.
Whisk to blend until the ingredients are thoroughly mixed.
Stir in one tablespoon of water at a time until the mix forms a thick pancake batter.
Spoon the batter onto the waffle iron.
Cook waffles until crisp and then serve with your choice of yogurt or syrup.
