Ingredients

  • 4 scoops (125 g) vanilla whey protein
  • 4 scoops (125 g) vanilla casein protein
  • 1⅔ cups (200 g) oat flour ⁣⁣
  • ¾ cup (100 g) cornstarch or tapioca flour
  • tsp (10 g) baking powder ⁣⁣
  • cups (600 g) liquid egg whites⁣⁣ or whole eggs, just match the weights
  • 3⅓ cups (750 g) plain nonfat Greek yogurt ⁣⁣
  • 1 cup (240 g) water ⁣⁣

Instructions

  • Mix all the dry ingredients together so no clumps are present. NOTE: I have tested this with only whey protein and it doesn't turn out. Only casein will work but you may need more water in the batter. The 50/50 blend of protein is best.
  • Add in the wet ingredients and mix thoroughly. The amount of water required may be variable. You need the batter to be pourable but not too watery. As the batter sits while you cook your waffles, the casein and oat flour will hydrate more and thicken the batter. You may need to add more water as you go.
  • Heat your waffle iron and spray with oil. Add the batter and cook for a 3-5 minutes or until browned and set. The waffle iron I use is an 8×8" square. I use between 200g-230g of batter per waffle.
  • Continue working your way through the batter until all of it has been used up and your waffles are cooked. As your waffles come out of the iron, allow them to cool on a wire lined sheet pan. If you have a square waffle iron like mine, cut the waffles into the 4 individual waffles.

Storage

  • Once all of your waffles have cooked and cooled to room temperature. Align them on your sheet pan and place them into the freezer uncovered until they have frozen solid.
  • Transfer the waffles to the Zwilling Fresh & Save zip top bags and use the vacuum pump to remove the air. If you try to vacuum seal the waffles before they have frozen solid, they will get smushed. If you don't plan to vacuum seal, you don't need to flash freeze them.
  • I was able to make 40 individual waffles from this recipe. The nutritional information is per each waffle with no toppings.

Reheating

  • You can reheat these waffles in the toaster, the air fryer, or microwave. Just keep an eye on them as to not burn the exteriors.

    best protein waffles I’ve tried! multiplied the recipe by 0.2 to make 8 waffles, made 4 in my slightly bigger waffle iron. did I put budget chocolate hazelnut spread on them? it was the weekend so you know it!

    How much of the protein pancake mix would I use for this? I’m rather not have to use all of the ingredients from scratch if need be

    1. Damien

      The recipe for the protein pancakes is equivalent to 4 waffles (in his waffle iron, my yield was closer to 24 waffles so 2.4 per protein pancake recipe)

  3. PJ

    @Damien Just to clarify… 2.4 servings of the protein pancake recipe mix per 4 waffles (roughly)?

  4. dimitar

    Are the ingredients below for just one Waffle or there is a bug with the website, as its display this for one serving?

      oh shoot, good catch. This was for 40 waffles. Thanks for the note

        My first attempt I got around 20 waffles but after weighing the cooked waffles I think I did to much batter per batch leading to them being 100g per 1/4th waffle cooked rather than the ~50g per 1/4th of the waffle…otherwise super tasty!

    Very tasty! Got 28 waffles out of my batch, though I was short a couple eggs (used 10, ~500g).

  6. Jocelyne Valenzuela

    Do i have to use both protein? whey and casein? or what could i substitute for it?

  7. ADam

    Hey! I love your channel, but I couldn’t find any casein protein near me. I bought some Zhou Plant based Protein Powder (vanilla), and I was wondering how good it is for use in your recipes?

    1. YPHOMIGPPOTE

      Need to use casein or it won’t come out right

  8. David Smith

    Love these. Made for first time January 2023. Lessons learned. Maybe grill longer or flash freeze longer. They got mushed in my Zwilling bags. But yummy is yummy.

    Have you ever tried this recipe with Chocolate Whey and Chocolate Casein?

    1. Jeanie Lazard

      I just made it with vanilla whey and chocolate casein, because I bought chocolate casein on accident lol. It’s not bad at all

      1. Janesse Hjelmberg

        Thank you! I think I’ll do it on purpose! 😆

  10. Jeanie Lazard

    Any way you can tell us the dry/finished weight of a single waffle? Trying to figure out my nutrition info for mine, I spilled kind of a lot of batter cuz I didn’t have an efficient way to get it from the bowl to the waffle iron, so I’m thinking my numbers wont be as accurate. If I can get the dry weight of your 68kcal waffle, I can approximately get the nutrition of mine.. Thanks!

    1. Sushi

      it reall depends on your waffle iron

    These were delicious, the kids loved them so it’s now a permanent in snack city!

    Recipe is great, however they stuck REALLY bad to my waffle iron with canola spray. Can’t really douse the waffle iron with butter because that would defeat the purpose of healthier waffles. So I just made them into pancakes. Waffle iron is in good shape, so I don’t know what else I could have done differently.

    These slap. Normally I’m really picky about the texture of baked goods, etc. with protein powder in them and think most are nasty, but this is a great substitute for a regular waffle. Followed the recipe exactly using a mix of Whole Foods brand vanilla whey protein isolate and ON casein and they come out great every time.

    Anyone know what the calories are per 100 grams?

    Super filling and delicious waffles with great macros. My waffle iron is twice as big I think, so I can make 4 waffles when I put in 8. I’ll eat 2 every day, either for breakfast or lunch. Can’t beat a delicious meal for 272 calories and 34.8 grams of protein that fills me up this well!

    I had bariatric surgery back on sept 20 2023 and made and froze a batch of these when I got back from the hospital. I think my batter was thicker than yours so my yield was less- which is okay because it meant that I get 13 grams of protein per waffle.

    These taste wonderful and freeze & reheat beautifully! I love being able to just pop one into my toaster when I don’t feel like cooking and have a hot waffle that’s actually good for me ready in just a few minutes
