Perfect Protein Waffles
Perfect Protein Waffles
Perfect Protein waffles that are fluffy and oh, so yummy! Start your day off right with these freezer-friendly goodies that are naturally gluten-free, dairy free and vegan!
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and these Protein Waffles are the way to start!
We’ve all heard that, but is it true? Test it out for yourself and see how much energy you have after eating these protein waffles. You know on the days you skip breakfast you are STARVING by lunch and don’t make the wisest choices, i.e. “I’ll have the supersize meal. Wait do you have anything larger?”
I promise these protein waffles taste just as delicious as other waffles!
The only difference you will notice is that you are satisfied without that heavy feeling in your belly. You won’t want to take a nap after eating them either.
These protein waffles are freezer-friendly for a quick breakfast!
You can make these in minutes in the blender! They are so fast and easy, but even better than that they freeze great! I love having a stash in the fridge for a quick breakfast.
I photographed these drenched in maple syrup and vegan butter (YUM!), but I rarely eat them that way. I like to add more protein and save calories by smothering them in a thin layer of peanut butter. Oh yeah! I also LOVE Trader Joe’s Low Sugar Blueberry Preserves – seriously good!
By smothering them in peanut butter or preserves they are easier to grab and go if you are really in a hurry. It’s so much healthier than hitting the drive-thru on the way to work.
Perfect Protein Waffles
- 1 cup oats gluten-free if needed
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 scoop protein powder
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 Tbsp maple, agave or brown rice syrup you could use stevia instead
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- pinch of salt and cinnamon
- Process oats in a blender until finely ground.
- Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth. Add more almond milk if the batter is too thick to pour.
- Allow the batter to sit for 5 minutes while the waffle iron heats. This allows the oats to absorb the liquid and thicken.
- Lightly grease the waffle iron. Pour batter and cook until golden brown.
I have tried many protein powders and I currently use and like Orgain Orgainic Plant Based Protein Powder. I typically use vanilla flavor in this recipe, but you could try chocolate. Let me know if you do!
I love this recipe and make extra every time just so I can have some in the freezer for busy mornings. I simply toast them straight from the freezer. Everyone will love them!

These look gorgeous, I do love a protein waffle they are a lovely go-to breakfast post workout.
Oh my goodness these look amazing! I just started eating vegan and making vegan waffles and pancakes and am always looking for new recipes. This is perfect!
Congrats on going vegan! Enjoy!
I love waffles! I only make them on weekends though, because usually preparation takes more time than our regular breakfast, and I’m always in a hurry in week days, lol. But now you’ve given me a great idea and I will try to freeze them next time!
Freezing is the way to go!
Yum!This looks like the perfect Sunday breakfast! Your pictures look so mouth watering. 🙂
This recipe looks so delicious, satisfying and healthy. What a perfect way to start your day by having this breakfast!
I have been trying to have a real, nutritious and filling breakfast. It is what my doctor recommends. I love your perfect protein waffle recipe. Not only is it healthy, it looks so delicious too!
Breakfast is important! Enjoy!
I made these this past week and I am currently making a double batch right now. I want to eat these everyday FOREVER. I put PBfit, a couple teaspoons of agave or maple on top, with fresh blueberries and it’s SO GOOD. I would choose these over my best overnight oats recipe any day, and they keep you full on a small serving! I never come back to rate/comment on recipes, but I’m so enamored with these waffles, I had to.
Yay!!! Thanks so much for coming back to rate them! I’m so glad you love them!
Sooo good!! I used plant head banana protein powder and a bit more cinnamon, it was amazing. Will definitely keep this recipe for weekend breakfast!
So glad you enjoyed them!
The flavor of these is awesome. They are really so delicious. However the batter was super runny, so I experimented a little bit and found that if I did one and a half cups of oats instead of one cup the batter came out perfect and waffles were crispy and delicious. Also makes great pancakes. Thanks for this recipe!
Hi thank you. Your perfect protein powder looks so yummy n delicious. Just to check how many grams protein powder in 1 scoop?
23 grams per scoop of protein powder. I hope you love them as much as I do!
I didn’t have a banana so I subbed 1 flax & 1 chia egg and added blueberries I was trying to get rid of. Wow. These are perfect. I’ve had some vegan waffles that are too delicate to reheat in a toaster and some that were really heavy. These are just right and after I made them I realized there is no oil! These will become my go to waffle recipe.
I’m so glad you liked them and added your own twist with the egg subs and berries!
Best version of healthy waffles that I’ve tried. It’s a keeper. Mine were a little runny, but just added a little more oats and it was perfect. I make a quad batch and eat them all week. 1/2 batch is perfect breakfast with hot fruit on top. Yum!
I’m so glad you liked them Sabrina! Thanks for the feedback!
