Wintertime brings Waffles

Here's the best protein waffles recipe I've found, these are light, crispy, and filled with protein! I make a few batches and then split them up in bags for the freezer for days when it's a grab and go breakfast, I can throw them in the toaster to reheat.  

 Light and Crispy Vanilla Protein Waffles 

Prep time:  10 mins Cook time: 20 mins Total time: 30 


  • ¾ cup applesauce
  • 4 eggs, whisked
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1 cup tapioca flour (I used arrowroot powder)
  • 1 cup vanilla protein powder (I used SFH pure vanilla)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • maple syrup, to garnish


  1. Whisk together applesauce, eggs, vanilla extract, and coconut oil.
  2. Add tapioca flour and whisk until combined. Then add protein powder and whisk again to combine. Lastly, add baking soda, cinnamon and a pitch of salt and mix well.
  3. Pour batter into the waffle iron (greased, if needed) and cook until crispy. Be patient. Mine took less than 5 minutes per waffles. Repeat. My batter made 2 batches of 4 square waffles.
  4. Garnish with Kerrygold butter and pure maple syrup.

Yields 8 waffles
