This recipe for light and fluffy low carb Protein Waffles makes the perfect easy breakfast or snack. They are freezer friendly too for a make-ahead idea!
When I discovered these protein waffles from my teammates, I was absolutely astounded! Who knew that just 3 ingredients and could become such a light and fluffy protein packed waffle.
It is sometimes really hard to get in the protein we need every day, especially when you are on the go. These high protein waffles are a triple win!!
Important: I made these with Nature’s Best Isopure Unflavored Whey Protein Powder. Be sure to check your own protein powder for its carb amount since they do vary per brand.
Top with your favorite fruit and syrup. Or if you’re like me peanut butter instead of syrup. I usually add a little water to a tablespoon of peanut butter and drizzle it over top. If you are a syrup lover and want a low carb alternative to maple syrup, Walden Farms has a great line to try.
I first made these when we were going to be traveling in April to have on a flight. I dusted off my waffle iron and made a batch of these easy low carb waffles. They were perfect with half a packet of this travel-friendly peanut butter.
Plus they freeze well too. So make a few to have on hand for whenever you are in a rush. They are so delicious!
Protein powder of your choice is the main ingredient of protein waffles whether it’s a vegan/ plant-based protein, keto protein or a whey protein. I use the unflavored protein but I know that many people use vanilla, chocolate, and even snickerdoodle flavors to make them all different flavors.
Use one whole egg or 20 grams of egg whites for lower fat if you prefer.
Just a little baking powder gives them the perfect amount of fluff.
Water adjusted to desired consistency (I use 3 tablespoons)
