High Protein Waffles are my absolute favorite to enjoy after a workout. I usually have a high-protein smoothie but some days I want something that feels a bit more indulgent. These waffles almost feel like a cheat meal, but they are made with clean ingredients that actually fuel the body!

These waffles are the perfect combination of thick, ultra fluffy, and tasty, while being completely gluten-free, grain-free, and refined sugar-free —now that’s what I call a winning combo!

Ingredients You’ll Need

  • Blanched Almond Flour: Be sure to use almond flour, not almond meal.
  • Protein Powder: Use your favorite protein powder. I use Orgain Organic Vegan Protein –it’s vegan, gluten-free, and packed with superfoods.
  • Rising Agents: You’ll need baking powder and salt to help the waffles rise and become fluffy
  • Non-dairy Milk: Use your favorite non-dairy milk. To keep these protein waffles grain-free, it is best to use almond milk or coconut milk.
  • Eggs: The eggs help bind the ingredients together. I have not tried the recipe without them, but maybe I will next!
  • Sweeteners and Spices: Add pure maple syrup, vanilla, and ground cinnamon. Each is optional, but I highly recommend adding them for the best flavor.
  • Extra-virgin Olive Oil: Use just a dab to coat the waffle maker before adding the batter. I find that I only have to add oil to the waffle maker when making the first waffle. Do what works best for your waffle maker. (You can also use cooking spray.

How To Make These Protein Waffles

Making these protein waffles is simple. Grab your blender, add all the ingredients, and blend until you have a smooth batter. Alternatively, you can combine the ingredients in a mixing bowl using a whisk.

Use either a mini or large waffle maker to make your waffles. Cook waffles according to the instructions on your waffle maker. ( I usually cook for 2-3 minutes.) Repeat until all the batter is used. This recipe makes four mini waffles or two large waffles. Feel free to double or triple the recipe as desired.

Toppings For Your Protein Waffles

Of course, you can just drizzle on a bit of maple syrup and enjoy them as is. OR you can fancy them up with a few toppings. Here are some of my favorite toppings to add:

  • Peanut Butter or Almond Butter Drizzle
  • Hemp Seeds
  • Stewed Cinnamon Apples
  • Yogurt
  • Sliced Strawberries or Fresh Blueberries

Storing And Rewarming

Store any leftover waffles in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week. You can also place them in the freezer for up to a month. Rewarm them in the microwave.

    These came out great! I added a bit more milk to get a thinner batter and they were super fluffy and filling!
