A waffle is just a pancake with abs.
I don’t know about you guys, but I am a waffles > pancakes person every single time. If you are on #teamwaffle as well, just wait until you see what I have for you today.
As wonderfully delicious as waffles are, we all know they are not necessarily “diet friendly,” especially when you are all about those toppings and add-ins. But luckily, I have created a macro-friendly version of my favorite guilty pleasure…and it’s not even guilty!
Without further ado, I introduce to you…Snickerdoodle Protein Waffles.
- 28g PEScience Snickerdoodle protein
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 egg white
- Enough water to make a dough-like consistency
- Optional toppings (pictured)
- 1/3 cup Halo Top Vanilla ice cream
- 1 TBS melted peanut butter
- 2 TBS Walden Farms pancake syrup
- Heat waffle iron; mix protein powder, baking powder, cinnamon, and egg white together. Slowly add water until you get the right consistency.
- Spray iron with non-stick spray and either pour all batter into iron or split into two (to make smaller waffles - pictured).
- Optional: top with deliciousness! I topped mine with a little ice cream and drizzled peanut butter and syrup on top.
- Macros for what is pictured (including peanut butter and ice cream)
- 33.8 g Protein // 13 g Carbs // 11.6 g Fat
- 261 calories
Mouth watering yet? Like it says in the recipe card, you can customize this as much as you want. I am definitely an ice cream kinda girl, so that was my topping of choice.
Here is a breakdown of the macros of a plain Belgian waffle from IHOP: 10 g Protein // 60 g Carbs // 27 g Fat
Is there even a contest here? I think not. Disclaimer: This specific protein is really good for making these waffles. I wouldn’t try it with just any kind of protein powder because the chances of it working are slim. This protein powder has a casein blend with make it optimal for baking use. I know that Quest Protein is also famous for being versatile in baking, but I haven’t tried that yet. This protein is honestly my favorite and I have tried LOTS. (I worked at the Vitamin Shoppe, remember?)
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me know if you try this recipe and how you thought it turned out in comparison to a regular waffle. Also, share your selected toppings! I do love my ice cream and peanut butter, but I also love trying new things 🙂
Happy Sunday friends, and enjoy your waffles!
