Chocolate Protein Waffles (Gluten Free)


I have made these waffles every week for the past month and we still want more, so I decided they were worth a post. These go with syrup and are also really good leftover. We have been making them into little waffle sandwiches with sunbutter and banana - yum!

Chocolate Protein Waffles


2 cups soy milk
2 tsp vinegar

1/3 cup water
2 tbsp ground flax seeds
1 smashed banana

3/4 cup buckwheat flour
3/4 cup oat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp sugar
3 tbsp cocoa powder
1/3 cup protein powder (chocolate is great)

3 tbsp oil

optional: chocolate chips


Combine the soy milk and the vinegar in a measuring cup and set aside to let curdle. Mix the water and the ground flax seeds and set aside to let thicken (it helps to stir it occasionally).

Mix the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. This is the buckwheat flour, oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar, cocoa powder and protein powder.

Then add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients which are the soured soy milk, flax egg, and the oil. Mix well (a few clumps are fine) and let the batter sit for 10 minutes while your waffle iron heats up. It is important to let the batter sit because the oat flour and the protein powder will soften up and incorporate more as the absorb the liquid in the batter. Also, the baking soda and the vinegar will react to leaven the batter and make it a bit fluffier.

Once your waffle iron is hot and the batter has rested, cook the waffles according to your waffle iron instructions. With mine, I find it works best to cook them a bit longer than indicated by the waffle maker and they turn out great.

This recipe made 14 - 4 inch waffles. The nutritional information below reflects that size waffle.
