Waffles or Pancakes?

Needless to say, there are pancake people and then there are waffle people. It’s hard to deny that both have their own appeal, pancakes can be fluffy, airy and uniquely stackable while waffles tend to have a crisper edge, thicker appearance and stuff-able quality. 

Whatever side of the line you tend to fall on, the ingredients in a waffle and pancake are very similar, but waffles tend to store better when following a meal prep plan. 

This simple high protein waffle recipe is prepared with 7 ingredients and is a great recipe because it can be prepared in less than 15 minutes from start to finish.

This recipe will help you crush your macros as each waffle packs 18 grams of protein and texturally mimics a classic Belgian waffle.

Make this a vegan friendly waffle by substituting the 3 eggs with ½ cup plant-based yogurt and utilizing a high-quality plant-based protein powder like momentous.

Step 2: Blend Your Protein Waffle Batter 

Place all of the wet ingredients into a blender and blend on high for 30 seconds, then add the dry ingredients and blend for 1-2 minutes until thoroughly mixed. We used our Breville Super Q Blender to help give the waffle batter a bit more fluff.

This recipe includes almond butter powder in the batter as it adds extra protein and flavor without adding any fat! If you can't find almond butter powder, substitute 1/2 cup of almond flour instead. 

You can also add some simple spices but feel free to get creative with the batter and your waffle toppings like preparing a maple cinnamon waffle

Some of our favorite ideas for various spices to include in the batter: 

  • Pumpkin Spice (pumpkin spice french toast, yes please) 
  • Cinnamon (pair with sautéed apples for a cinnamon & apple french toast) 
  • Nutmeg 
  • Allspice 
  • Cardamom (try out a chai spiced french toast) 
  • Ginger 

Step 3: Cook Your Waffles 

Once your waffle maker has heated up, measure 1/4 cup of batter for each waffle and cook for 1 1/2 - 2 minutes until golden brown, these waffles cook fast!
