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!

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

  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!
