It took a lot to get protein waffle recipe right- Saturday my kitchen was a mess and I spent 3 and a half hours mixing batter. Moving it to different bowls, adding in extra ingredients and really just trying to not get fed up with how long each waffle take. 7 minutes per waffle and I made 18 of them that’s not including the measuring and clearing up afterwards.
This was a labour of love – eventually.
I have done an ultimate list of waffles and these have to be added. I will be honest, I do prefer the old chocolate protein waffles for flavour but when it comes to cutting carbs I really eat my majority for dinner. On Cardio days I eat 250g carbs so I’ll eat heavier but these do the job during the week. Since the protein blend is high in sweetener and low in sugar you will get a weird sweetener aftertaste, I’m really not a fan of that. So I tend to crisp mine up and coat them in soy yoghurt or tofu-nice cream.
New (lower carb) Chocolate Protein Waffles
- Rolled Oats – 3.5tbsp
- Complete protein blend, 250g
- Almond ess, 4 tsp
- Flour, 50g
- unsweetened cocoa 2tbsp
- Pea Protein, 35g
- Sweet pot, 70g (1 small)
- Spirulina powder, 13.5g or 1 tsp
- Baking powder, 1Tbsp
- Water 1.75ltrs
Steam your sweet potato, skin on, in the microwave. It should take 3 minutes. Meanwhile, you can measure your ingredients and add all of your dry ingredients in one bowl and blend.
Peel your sweet potato once steamed, it should be super easy, mash with a fork until smooth. Again, the water in the potato should make it super creamy. Add your potato to the centre of your dry ingredients, pouring the water in the centre of the bowl and combine.
It really is as simple as that. I portioned my batter out with a standard ice cream scoop and it made 6 large (very puffy) and two thinner waffles.

Since I made far too many of these protein waffle’s, I literally spent almost 4 hours making these on Saturday. I have halved the recipe so you can at least fit in in a mixing bowl. Unlike mine…The mix will still make 8 almost 9 waffles so you’ll end up with enough to last you a few weeks.
I now have two freezers full of stacks of these and I’m trying to eat them for breakfast and dessert. There’s really not enough time in the day.
They’re slightly lower in carbs as you can bulk batch these protein waffle’s which means they take the spirulina (my review – it’s high in protein) and the pea protein (read my review It’s high in protein) which are both strange flavours to add to chocolate but the large bulk spreads the flavour out a bit thinner. The other waffles I added to the ultimate waffle list are gorgeous and full of flavour but have equal carbs to protein, damn it.

So if you’re looking to add more protein and eat fewer carbs these are your key to happiness.
