Whey Protein Waffles

KristineHealthy Breakfast, Recipes52 Comments

Warm, crispy waffles. Comfort food at its best. I don’t make waffles all that often because of the extra time it takes, so when I do, I prefer making a batch so I have some leftover for the freezer .  Once they’re in the freezer, you can just pop them in the toaster like Eggo waffles.

I’ve been making these waffles for years, and they come out great every time. No matter what kind of waffle maker you have, they always seem to work out.

I find these waffles also cook faster than traditional waffles, so you don’t need to wait as long to enjoy them…

You can top them however you like. Syrup, low sugar syrup, berries, butter or even peanut butter and jam. My favorite way is with butter and some mixed berries warmed up (and sweetened with stevia).
