Yield: 14 waffles and ⅔ cup cream cheese syrup
Delicious pumpkin spice whey protein waffles. Great to make ahead and freeze and pop in the toaster like an Eggo for a quick breakfast.
For the Waffles
  • 2 cups oat flour (grind up oats in your blender or food processor)
  • 2 Tbsp flax seeds (chia seeds work too)
  • ¾ cup whey protein, vanilla (I used Whey Gourmet)
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice)
  • 1 cup pumpkin (canned plain pumpkin)
  • 2 eggs
  • 25 drops vanilla stevia (*optional)
For the Cream Cheese Syrup
  • 1 Tbsp butter (for dairy-free use vegan margarine)
  • 1.5 Tbsp of light cream cheese, softened (for dairy-free use Daiya cream cheese style spread)
  • 1 cup confectioners (icing) sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 Tbsp+ unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice)
  1. Preheat your waffle iron.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl (oat flour, flax, whey protein, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder).
  3. Add in the wet ingredients (vanilla, milk, pumpkin, eggs).
  4. Mix until blended together. Allow the batter to sit for 5 minutes to thicken up a bit.
  5. Spray your waffle iron with cooking spray. Add approx 3 Tbsp of the waffle mixture to each waffle slot.
  6. Cook for about 5-6 minutes, they will start to darken and become crispy on the outside when done.
  7. For the cream cheese syrup, whisk all the syrup ingredients together, adding enough milk so its a consistency you want.
  8. Serve waffles with cream cheese syrup if desired.
