Easy Protein Waffles
February 22, 2017

This high protein recipe can be turned into pancakes or waffles. You can use 1/3 of the recipe for a single serving - but I recommended making the full batch and freezing the leftovers. They can easily be reheated for an on-the-go breakfast.

The recipe provided is the "base" but you can experiment by incorporating flavored protein powder, extracts, vanilla, or cinnamon. Take your waffle to the next level by topping it with fun ingredients. Some ideas: 

  • Natural peanut butter or almond butter
  • Thawed berries (a lower sugar 'syrup' alternative as the juices from the berries add sweetness and moisture)
  • A sprinkle of unsweetened coconut
  • Chopped nuts 
  • Slice bananas 

My friend, Leah, shared this recipe with me. She adds lemon extract and poppy seeds for a "lemon poppy seed" variation.

  • 1 cup cottage cheese (250g) *
  • 30g protein powder (1 scoop) **
  • pinch of salt

Directions:

  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a blender. Experiment with flavored protein powders, extracts, vanilla, or cinnamon for a unique twist on the classic recipe. 
  2. Cook in a waffle iron (or griddle for pancakes) as you would other recipes
  3. Dress up your waffle or pancakes with your favorite toppings (note: the nutrition facts provided are for the base recipe). 

* I have made the recipe with 'regular' cottage cheese or 'dry curd' cottage cheese. If you use the dry curd, add an extra 1/3 cup water or milk

** the protein powder can be omitted from the recipe and they will turn out just fine!
