High-protein waffle recipe

May 4, 2015

Several readers asked me to share the recipe for the waffle I posted about last week.

This recipe, slightly modified, comes from Tone It Up.

1 large banana
4 egg whites (I usually add the yolks of two of them)
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 tablespoon milk (can use regular, coconut, soy, or almond -- I use almond)
2 scoops rice protein powder (see below) -- chocolate or vanilla flavored

Blend well (I use my Nutri Bullet) and cook in an oiled waffle maker. Top with fruit of your choice. Can serve with a small amount of organic maple syrup or butter, if desired. I skip the syrup and use a little pat of organic butter. 

Makes 2 large waffles. 

This is the protein powder I use:

These waffles have 15 grams of protein per serving (I guess more if you use your egg yolks). One of these keeps me going all morning long -- more than you can say for a regular white flour/white sugar waffle!



  1. Thank you for the recipe. I love a waffle but as with you, it just doesn't provide enough energy for a morning of work. I will give this a try!

  2. I love a high protein breakfast, and your waffle recipe sounds great, Deborah. I can keep going for 5 hours when I have enough protein. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Can't wait to try these. I think I still have some chocolate protein powder hiding somewhere.

  4. Dearest Deborah,
    What a sweet coincidence that we both serve a healthy waffle and pancake at the same time! Love your photo and for sure this is a very good one! Thanks for sharing.

  5. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. Have a lovely day.

  6. Hi Deborah, what a great recipe and it looks so delicious topped with the fruit. Thanks for sharing.
    Hugs, CM
