Ah, protein waffles. This recipe has taken me so many times to get just right. Tons of different recipes and revisions ended in disappointment. I was beginning to think these just wouldn’t work. It wasn’t until I added coconut flour that it turned out perfect! The texture, the taste, and the macros were all on point! At last, the perfect chocolaty, low carb waffle was born!

The addition of the coconut flour transformed the typical protein waffle or pancake from dry and brittle to a bready delight. If I hadn’t made them myself, I would have thought they originated from dough instead of a batter based off of the consistency.

I made the recipe for one individual waffle, so you don’t wind up with endless amounts of batter or waffles. Just scale up if you’re cooking for more than yourself!

The Chocolate Protein Waffles Recipe

The base of the recipe consists of low carb chocolate protein powder, coconut flour, egg, and baking powder. I like to use the creamy chocolate fudge flavor of Orgain brand protein powder for several reasons. It’s super low in carbs (3g net per serving), it tastes great, isn’t gritty, it’s organic, and they sell it at Costco. I love Costco and bulk shopping, so… I have a lot of this stuff! 🙂 Just be sure that whatever protein powder you decide to use, it’s low in carbs.

Update: Since initially writing this, I have completely fallen in love with Quest protein powders, and the chocolate milkshake flavor is to die for. Pretty much all of their flavors are on point, so if you’re looking for something ah-mazing, you should probably try one of the Quest proteins. They’re so good… and only 2 grams net carbs per scoop!

Chocolate Protein Waffles [Recipe] | KETOGASM #keto #ketogenic #recipes #protein #powder #low carb #breakfast #waffle #chocolate #atkins #healthyThrow all the dry ingredients into a bowl, drop an egg in there and mix until the powdery clumps are gone. Slowly add water to your mixture until you reach the consistency of a thick pancake batter. Spread the batter onto a hot, greased waffle iron and cook until they crisp up.

It’s entirely optional, but if you find the batter a bit dry or thick, you can add a teaspoon of melted coconut oil to the mix before cooking. This will add a little extra fat and calories but will moisten it up a bit.

Top the chocolate protein waffles with whatever low carb goodies your heart desires. I’ve never been big on syrup, so I usually smother my waffles and pancakes in butter. But these would make perfect dessert waffles with a bit of heavy whipped cream and berries. Yum!

If you don’t have protein powder on hand, you could try my cream cheese stuffed keto waffles!
