Protein & Chocolate Waffles (Gluten Free)

Waffles seem like a naughty rare treat for breakfast but my versions are made with gluten free or wholemeal flour, protein and no added sugar (sweeten with maple syrup, fruit and yoghurt). They're easy to prepare and so filling. Why not make a large batch and freeze them. The great thing about this recipe is you can make 2 chocolate and 2 protein waffles or adjust the ingredients and have 4 of the same. Also add maple syrup if you have a sweet tooth or extra protein if you're a gym goer. You can use a waffle maker but I'm using a silicone mold from amazon. It was around £4 and is brilliant.

Protein Waffles

  • Method
    Put all the dry ingredients and sultanas in a jug and whisk together. Add the oil, milk and vanilla and whisk until combined, if the batter is too thick add a little more milk. Pour into 2 molds and prepare the chocolate batter.

Chocolate Waffle

    Add all dry ingredients, add extra protein powder if you wish. Whisk together then add the wet ingredients and whisk again. Pour into other half of mold and bake in the centre of the oven for 15 minutes.



      TIP: Grease mould before pouring in batter to stop waffles sticking.
