Protein powder waffles made with coconut flour. Grain-free. Gluten-free waffle recipe.
Gluten-free waffle recipe that is full of protein from the protein powder and eggs and full of fiber from the coconut flour.
We used a brown rice protein powder that we got from the local health food store mixed with coconut flour. We know many of you have wanted us to do more recipes using coconut flour. And we have been working hard to provide some more recipes using coconut flour.
These past few days we have studied all different types of waffle recipes. We have researched the history of waffles and what makes a waffle different from a pancake. Do you know the difference?
We found some sites saying there really is no difference besides the look of them. But then there were sites that said waffles usually have more oil or fat in them to help get them crispy compared to a soft pancake. We also learned that some recipes said to whisk the egg whites separate from the egg yolks as this will help in the texture of the waffle. So we gave that technique a try and we liked it.
What do you think? Is there a big difference between waffles and pancakes?
Basically what we were looking for in our waffle recipe was:
- very easy to make.
- tasted great.
- few ingredients.
- light and a little spongy texture.
We feel this recipe meets all those requirements.
This protein powder waffle we feel can be used with any protein powder of your liking. But like we have mentioned many times before, different protein powders will react differently in the recipe. Though any protein powder should work!
Basic Protein Powder Waffles (gluten free, soy free, peanut free, low in sugar)
Our waffles definitely had a brown rice protein flavor to them. We have not been the biggest fans of this particular brown rice protein powder (NutriBiotic vegan rice protein vanilla flavored), which we have been using in our recipes lately. The reason we tried this brand was because a few of you mentioned to us on facebook about using a different protein powder to bake with rather than Sunwarrior and Vega as they are more expensive. As this particular brand is cheaper.
We did not add any special flavorings as we wanted a BASIC vanilla waffle recipe before we started to play around with flavors. It took us 3 different recipes to get to the one we are satisfied with.
We hope you all enjoy! We sure have been eating waffles like crazy around here.
Hope everyone enjoys our take on gluten free coconut flour protein waffles. They are not your average waffle, but we found them to be amazing. Okay maybe we are biased of our recipes, but we have enjoyed these protein waffles for about 5 days in a row now. These protein waffles have become our pre-workout meal. YUM!
Now go make yourself some high protein coconut waffles. We feel these beat any store bought waffle.
