Single Serving Low Carb Protein Waffle (Vegan+ GF+DF)

Happy Friday and cheers to the weekend🎉 I'm super pumped for this weekend because it's a long weekend with MLK day on Monday and I have all sorts of fun things planned with my boyfriend. This week has felt super long so I am definitely pumped for the weekend🙌

Nothing beats kicking off the weekend with a delicious and nutritious breakfast. One of my go to's recently has been protein waffles. It keeps me full for hours, I can add whatever toppings I feel like and it's a great way to refuel after a workout. This recipe is my favorite because it's so easy and it's ready in under five minutes! 

Single Serving Low Carb Protein Waffle 
  • 1 scoop Pescience vegan chocolate protein powder (or protein powder of choice)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 egg 
  • 1/4 cup water
  • OPTIONAL: 1/2 Tablespoon Enjoy Life chocolate chips

In a small bowl mix all ingredients together. If the batter is too thick add an additional 1 Tablespoon of water at a time to thin it out. You want the batter to be thin enough to spread out over the waffle iron, but not too runny. 

Lightly spray waffle iron with nonstick spray, this helps the waffle not to stick to and rip when you try get it off the iron.

Pour batter into waffle iron spreading it out evenly. Cook for 1-2 minutes or until done. Top with all your favorite toppings and devour! If you make this delicious waffle tag me on instagram and use the hashtag #thesimplelife so I can see all your delicious creations😋

  1. It's super amazing that you can make a waffle out of protein powder without flour. It looks so light and chocolatey and fluffy.

    1. The protein powder replaces the flour and acts in the same way flour would :) It's a super light and fluffy waffle and the chocolate protein powder definitely made it delicious :)
