Vegan Whole Wheat Protein Waffles

Get Out the Waffle Maker! These Whole Wheat Vegan Waffles Offer 8.4 Grams of Protein

Dust off the ol' waffle maker and whip up a batch of these hearty, protein-packed vegan waffles. Soft and fluffy on the inside and slightly crispy on the outside, these waffles have no milk, butter, or eggs.

These waffles are made with healthy, filling, and nutritious ingredients like whole wheat flour, flaxmeal, and hemp seeds. The added vanilla protein powder makes these so satiating, but I promise there's no chalky aftertaste. With two tablespoons of maple syrup added to the batter, I found these waffles were sweet enough topped with some fresh fruit, but they'd also be amazing with a smear of nut butter. Each waffle has just 5.7 grams of sugar. Of course the maple syrup police won't be at your house so go ahead and drizzle some on — they are waffles, after all!

One waffle offers almost 20 percent of your daily calcium, 10 percent of your daily potassium, and eight percent of your daily iron. Not bad for a waffle! This recipe makes six waffles, and at 130 calories per waffle, 3.7 grams of fat, 17.6 grams of carbs, and 2.4 grams of fibre, you could enjoy one or two at any time of the day — not just on Sunday brunch! Then freeze the rest to enjoy later that week.
