Vanilla Protein Waffles

No breakfast or brunch is complete without....WAFFLES! This is one of my favorite recipes because it's super easy to make, you only need a few ingredients, and they're delicious.

Many waffle recipes include flour and other processed ingredients, like sugar. These ingredients can leave you feeling stuffed and sluggish. However, this recipe has a good balance of protein, fiber, and healthy fats-- it'll leave you feeling satisfied.

I love that these waffles call for ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen (I'm all about ease and efficiency). That means less time in the grocery store or waiting for your online orders to arrive. Also, this recipe only requires a few steps! Even though I enjoy cooking, I don't want to spend all day in the kitchen. I have a demanding career and active lifestyle, so getting in and out of the kitchen is a must.


  • 1/4 cup vanilla protein powder

  • 2 tbsp creamy peanut butter

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil (melted)

  • 3 large eggs

  • 1/2 tsp gluten-free baking powder

  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

  • Vanilla flavored plant-based milk (optional)


  1. Place all ingredients into a blender. Blend until batter is smooth.

  2. Preheat your waffle maker. Coat waffle iron with cooking spray.

  3. Transfer batter evenly into the waffle iron. Note: The batter will be thick.

  4. Cook according to manufacturer's instructions. Typically, waffles cook for 4- 5 minutes, and are done when steam is no longer coming out.

Special Equipment

I'm a kitchen gadget collector, so I'm all for trying new products. I purchased a few waffle makers in the past, but this waffle maker is a total game changer. Not only can you cook 2 waffles at the same time, but it has deep waffle pockets and nonstick grids that release waffles easily. Now that's a win!
