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

Try using the protein waffles as the bread for a sandwich or burger. Add a little sweet to those savory lunches? Yes, please!

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 ?
Absolutely, greek yogurt or even pumpkin puree or some cooked sweet potato! :-)
awesome. i will make them this weekend. pumpkin puree actually sounds pretty good. also i can put my sweet potatos to more use. lol
My fav recipe is
1 scoop of vanilla myofusion
2 egg whites plus 1 full egg
8 tablespoons of cottage cheese
8 tablespoons of oats (quick oats works)
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
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.
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.
