High Protein Chocolate Waffles for Bodybuilding or General Fitness

Chocolate Protein Waffles

Waffles are a popular daily choice for one of my bodybuilding sons. Our waffle maker gets used daily, and on occasion, several times a day.

You can review similar single-use waffle makers to ours here on this product page.

For this article, my son Jesse has offered up his favorite high protein breakfast waffles. He makes them every day before his workout. 

He has, on occasion, modified the recipe for me (his Ketogenic mom), and I personally approve. Yum.

 Chocolate Protein Waffles

( Recipe makes 2 waffles)

1/2 cup cottage cheese

1/2 cup egg whites

1 scoop of protein powder (Preferably a casein protein blend or at least non-vegan. The consistency of certain vegan proteins can make the mixture not thick enough to make fluffy waffles).

1/2 cup oatmeal OR coconut flour (for low carb/keto waffles)

1 tbsp cocoa powder

1 tbsp powdered peanut butter (PB2)

1 tbsp stevia

1 tsp cinnamon

1 cap full of vanilla extract

          1 tsp baking powder 

Nonstick cooking spray for the waffle iron

Directions:

1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl until batter holds a thick consistency

2. Spray the waffle iron with nonstick cooking spray or brush with butter/coconut oil

3. Measure out 1/2 cup of mixture onto waffle iron and let cook for 45 seconds (1 minute for each waffle)

4. Top with your favorites - nonfat greek yogurt, chia seeds, bananas, and/or sugar-free pancake syrup

Approximate Macros (With Oatmeal):

60+ grams of protein

35+ grams of carbs

7+ grams of fat

Approx. Macros (With Coconut flour)

60+ Grams of protein

8-10 grams of carbs

14 grams of fat


Whether you make the recipe with coconut flour or oatmeal does not affect the waffles' protein content since most of the protein comes from the protein powder, egg whites, and cottage cheese. As mentioned above, coconut flour makes it keto-friendly.

This is a great recipe for bodybuilding, general fitness, and overall health. You'll get a ton of protein from clean sources, and my son says it's very satiating. He also says this waffle recipe keeps him full for the better half of 6-8 hours, which, according to him, is quite the diet hack.

  1. These sound delicious, guess a waffle maker will be going on my wish list. Although I'm not a big breakfast person, I would make these once in a while. I could even do this for lunch. Thanks Barbara and Jesse!

  2. I do love waffles, and Fran is always telling me that I don't get enough protein. I see that Jesse's waffles are packed with protein. As luck would have it I have a waffle maker. Thanks Jesse and Barbara for the recipes.

  3. My son used to drink a protein shake regularly before his work outs, so this protein-packed waffle recipe makes perfect sense to me. Tell Jesse thanks for sharing his recipe.

  4. The waffles look delicious (especially with the banana topping)! Anything that wards off hunger for 6-8 hours is a great meal too. My husband prefers waffles to pancakes. He would love this recipe. I would imagine the recipe would work for pancakes too (we just won't tell the men :)

  5. Barbara, these look (and sound) amazing!!! I’m always looking for high-protein, low carb alternatives to eggs for breakfast. These would even be good with a dollop of unsweetened whipped cream for dessert, I bet! Many thanks to you and Jesse for sharing this healthy recipe and including a keto-friendly adaptation.
