Ask The Protein Powder Chef: What's The Best Way To Make Waffles?

I have a passion for weightlifting, nutrition, and great-tasting food. My specialty is cooking with protein powder. Ask me a question and I'll turn it into a delicious, protein-filled recipe!
Q

Hi Anna! I really want to add some protein to my waffle recipe, but I'm not sure how much to add or which type to use. What's your recipe?

If you have a waffle maker, you need to try these protein waffles. They're just like regular waffles, but better! Don't have a waffle maker? Don't worry; just fry the batter like you're making pancakes!

Below is an easy recipe for banana flaxseed protein waffles. I made them using Myofusion's Probiotic Blend and a couple of tablespoons of pea protein powder. If you don't have pea protein powder, add coconut flour or a couple more tablespoons of almond meal instead. You can also add an actual banana to your mix if you want them even more "banana-full," or throw in some cottage cheese for extra moistness.

If you want, tweak the ingredients to fit your macros. For breadier, more carb-dense waffles, use more oats and less flaxseed (or no flaxseed at all). If you want your waffles low-carb, substitute the oats with ground almonds.

Play around with the ingredients and flavors. You can also add some great textures to create a stack of waffles unlike any other. Experiment and have fun!

Anna's Protein Waffle Recipe

Ingredients
Directions
  1. Get your waffle maker really hot and spray it with some nonstick spray.
  2. Using a handheld blender, food processor, or standing blender, blend all of the above ingredients together to create a pancake-type batter.
  3. Pour the waffle mix on the waffle maker and close it until the light goes off and the waffles are cooked.
  4. Plate up! Top with your favorite nut butter, some fruit, maple syrup, or some Walden Farms calorie-free maple syrup!

Made these before. very excellent. I may have to try the cottage cheese addition to add that moisture. have had a few batches be a little dry. could you use greek yogurt for the moisture if youre not a fan of cottage cheese ?

Just a small question, won't the protein be 'denatured' once it's heated? Just as protein powder should not be shaken with hot water due to it's protein potency to be denatured.

Protein gets "denatured" when it enters your stomach and small intestine. Your body doesn't use proteins you eat in their native forms, it enzymatically breaks down proteins into their constituent amino acids.

Take out the flax seeds and you got a winner. Carbs and fats together have always resulted in fat gain for me (unsaturated or not).

I've tried my own recipe of Protein Pancakes & they are pretty good but need lots of tweaking to be healthier & tastier. I like to use real fruit (Bananas & blueberries) for that Extra flavor, just makes them so much tastier.
I will be doing this recipe this weekend & great suggetions from the post too, I will give them all a shot eventually.

I wonder if I could use Chia seeds instead of flax, that's what I've got at home and I need to use them. :-)
