These turn out beautifully, and the nutrition facts are truly unbeatable! This recipe serves 1 and makes 2 waffles and has 3 ingredients (plus water and toppings)! I love waffles, the way liquids pocket into those square crevices, the crunch that pancakes simply don’t have. I have a cheap waffle maker, the only trick with these since the ingredients are so simple, is to only cook them for about a minute. The protein powder makes them cook quickly, and if overlooked they will dry out.
Simply preheat your waffle maker and spray well with non-stick cooking spray.
1 scoop whey protein powder (I used PEScience)
1tsp baking powder
About 1/2 cup water ( add the water very slowly until you get a nice, just pourable consistency)
Once combined, pour half your batter into the waffle maker, checking on it at about 1 minute to see if it is the consistency you like. You can always close it and leave it in a little more, but don’t want to overcook. Repeat for second waffle.
Top wth cinnamon, fresh fruit, and other choice toppings!
In lieu of syrup or honey, I mixed 1.5 tbs of vanilla flavored powders peanut butter (like PB2) and drizzled it on top! With some fresh strawberries, I got a real PB and J thing going without any added sugars 😀
So good, so high in protein but low in sugars! Easy to feel like you are having a treat while really nourishing your body 🙂
For the whole waffle recipe it is about 210 cal, 8f, 29 protein, only 5 carbs.With a cup of strawberries and the pb drizzle, the whole shebang was only 290 cal, 9 fat, 34 protein!
