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!
