Protein Waffle Recipe

Your Love of High-Protein Breakfasts and Waffles Converge in 1 Glorious Recipe

High-protein, low-carb, gluten-free, totally delicious waffles: they exist. They're a thing. Try to contain your excitement (or don't, whichever you prefer).

If you're on team waffles and have been dissatisfied with protein pancakes, then this is the recipe for you. Using vanilla protein (this one uses the Tone It Up x Target variety) and almond meal in lieu of flour, you'll reduce carbs while upping protein, creating a gluten-free breakfast that'll give you the fuel you need for a great day (and a great workout).

And the best part about these — besides all the aforementioned health perks — is that you can create delicious flavor combos with the toppings, like tropical fruit, chocolate strawberry, blueberry lemon, or caramel apple. Mmmmm waffles.
