These single-serving paleo waffles are packed with protein, and are ready in 5 minutes so you can have healthy, gluten free waffles any day of the week!
Lightly crispy on the outside. Soft and chewy on the inside with juuuuust a hint of natural vanilla sweetness.
These are things that dreams are made of. And by “dreams” I mean “this protein waffles recipe.”
They also happen to have about 4 BILLON grams of protein, which adds to whole breakfast dream-ery thang.
Sidenote: Don’t take my word for the 4 billion. It might be closer to 30. WHICH IS STILL G-R-8.
I have a question for you. Are you one of those people that wakes up on any Monday morning, rolls out of bed, pours yourself 5 cups of coffee (but who’s counting) and then proceeds to sadly eat your morning bowl of NOTSO exciting oatmeal?
And then press repeat for 5 days SOLID until it’s finally the weekend.
I mean, I don’t want you to think I hate on oatmeal or anything. I’ve been guilty of eating healthy cinnamon roll protein oatmeal, or even oatmeal breakfast bars for breakfast EVERY SINGLE MORNING all week long.
I get it, making a bowl of oatmeal is about 40 gazillion times easier than making some epic breakfast on busy mornings.
Again, don’t take my word for “40 gazillion.” But, YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.
SRSLY though. What I am TRYING TO say is that I basically am saving your life today.. Because SAY “SAYANORA” to the black and white days of boring breakfast-dom.
Because, you know what, I’m MAKIN’ WAFFLES.
If you can name that movie, then I might even make an extra one for you. Hint: It’s Shrek.
I’m not good at guessing games. Clearly.
But, you know what I am good at. Making a total mess of my kitchen by making 12 waffles IN A ROW (no lie) because I had to experiment with different protein powders to get the waffles JUST SO.
No one want’s a soggy waffle. (It happened.) and no one wants a waffle SO LIGHT that it just vanishes IN YOUR MOUTH. (It also happened. I am still pondering where on earth it went. My bet? Waffle Heaven.)
P.s I want to go there.
But, and no waffling around here (had to) I have got to say that these might have changed my outlook on mornings. Like, 4-EVAH. Especially because you can top them without whatever is YOUR JAM that morning.
You get the picture.
You can build them up into whatever your new healthy-protein-waffle-feelings-of-love desires to face plant into that very morning.
Plus, waffles on a weekday morning? It makes it feel like the WEEKEND all week long. <— Might have been a stretch.
The ONE COMMENT I will make (well it’s like the 40th comment, but whatever. It’s weird that you’re keeping count. Stap it) is that some protein powders WILL yield more crisp waffles, and some will not. I tried them with 3 different brands, and got them to all be crispy and airy and basically the most perfect waffle that even IHOP ain’t got nothin’ on, but you just need to play with ratios.
Got yourself some thin protein powder? Use less almond milk. Or get new protein powder because BLEH.
THICK? Use more. Obvi.
Make your waffle battah look like pourable pancake mix, cook it until crispy and brown (some powders need multiple cooking sesh’s) and call it breakfast.
Hey evil mornings of DOOM. YOU HAVE MET YOUR MATCH.
