|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
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.
