recipe notes and tips

  • Try to find some sugar free chocolate chips and if you can, use sugar free syrup to keep this very low in carbs.
  • Allow all your ingredients to come up to room temp before mixing.
  • Using a gentle motion and take a few minutes to mix the batter, don’t do violent mixing or it will lead to less fluffy waffles.
  •  Use a spoon to spread the batter over the surface of the waffle iron.
  • Make sure you use a preheated waffle iron.
  • If you don’t have a good timer on your waffle iron, you can tell the Protein Waffles are done cooking when steam is no longer coming out the sides of the waffle iron.
  • If you’re making a big batch of waffles, heat up the oven (250F) when you turn on the waffle maker then transfer the cooked waffles to the oven while you cook the rest.
  • Use a rubber spatula or rubber kitchen tool to remove the waffles, the stops scratching the waffle maker.
  • Clean your waffles maker right after use, it’s easier than leaving it and trying to scrape off hard batter!
  • Top with maple syrup, miniature chocolate chips, and fresh berries.
  • I used vanilla whey protein as it does not overpower the waffles. 

faq’s

what are protein waffles?

Protein waffles are simply waffles loaded with protein – usually with whey protein. This recipe is also low carb and sets you up for the day nicely!

What can I substitute for milk in waffles

When making this low carb protein waffle recipe or basically any other waffle recipe, water is usually a great substitute for milk. It may take away a bit of the rich flavor from the waffles since water has no taste but it will still turn out great. The edges will be crispier. Use one cup of water in place of one cup of milk.

What can I substitute for baking powder in waffles?

Ran out of baking powder and just not sure what to use in place of it? Don’t sweat it. You can use a combination of baking soda and vinegar. Furthermore, for every 1 teaspoon of baking powder, you can use 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda and 1 teaspoon of vinegar.

can I make these waffles ahead of time?

These delicious protein waffles are an ideal make-ahead breakfast! Cook the waffles as per the recipe, allow to cool down. Then place the waffles on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and freeze for a couple of hours. Once they are frozen, to save space you can put them in a freezer-safe bag. Make a big batch! They’ll keep for about 3 months.

To reheat, you can use the microwave, toaster, or oven – enjoy!
