Who doesn’t love a good waffle? They’re the perfect breakfast food – crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. And while traditional waffles are delicious, they often lack the protein that our bodies need to fuel our day. That’s where these Fluffy Protein Waffles come in. With a little bit of tweaking, you can turn your favorite breakfast treat into a protein-packed meal.
To make these waffles, you’ll need:
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup protein powder (whey, soy, or pea protein all work well)
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 3/4 cups milk (any kind will do)
- 2 eggs
- 2 tbsp melted butter or oil
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Begin by whisking together the dry ingredients (flour, protein powder, baking powder, and salt) in a medium-sized bowl. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and then add in the milk, melted butter or oil, and vanilla extract. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
Next, heat up your waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Once hot, lightly coat the surface with cooking spray or oil and spoon in the waffle batter. Close the lid and cook until the waffles are golden brown and crispy about 5-6 minutes.
Serve the waffles warm with your favorite toppings. Some tasty options include fresh fruit, peanut butter, maple syrup, or whipped cream. These Fluffy Protein Waffles are a great way to start your day off on the right foot and keep you fueled until lunchtime. Enjoy!
