Chocolate Protein Waffles

Chocolate Protein Waffles

These waffles are seriously delicious, and it’s a double bonus that they are 100% healthy and high in protein too.


These waffles are perfect for breakfast, as a snack or for dessert and they taste delicious with fresh fruit & yoghurt.


If you don’t have protein powder check out my original Healthy Waffle Recipe! 



Chocolate Protein Waffles


  • 1 scoop/30g chocolate protein powder
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) milk e.g. almond/skimmed
  • 1/4 cup (30g) oat flour (simply blend oats to make)
  • 1/2 large banana (mashed)
  • 1 egg
  • 1-2 tsp cocoa
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • spray oil


  1. Add your mashed banana to a bowl along with the protein powder, milk, oat flour, egg, cocoa and baking powder
  2. Whisk or blend in a food processor
  3. Spray your pre-heated waffle maker (well) with spray oil
  4. Pour your waffle mix in to the maker (I have a double square waffle maker and this mixture makes 4 of them).. just make sure that you don't over-fill it!
  5. Close the lid & allow the waffle to cook for 5-6 minutes
  6. Serve with your chosen fruit, maple syrup & a dash of cinnamon 


P.S I got my waffle maker from Amazon!

        I know!! Who knew! You can pick up waffle makers pretty cheap – although they are a bind to clean!! Maybe toastie makers are the future?! Haha! x

    Just made these for the second time! WOW! I added a drip of almond extract this time, as well as topping with smashed strawberries. Yum!

    Hiya Nic what could you use instead of banana? Or can you not taste the banana much?
    Thanks x

    • June 30, 2014 / 6:23 pm

      You can’t taste the banana but you can swap it for apple sauce (I use the fruit purees from the baby aisle!!) x
