Yield 4 1x


Dry Ingredients

  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup plant-based vanilla protein powder (we used Vanilla Garden of Life)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Wet Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups unsweetened almond milk*
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil


  1. Begin by preheating your waffle iron to medium heat.
  2. Next, in a large bowl, mix together eggs, almond milk, and vanilla. Then, add in flour, protein powder, baking powder, and baking soda. Mix until combined.
  3. Finally, add in melted coconut oil and mix again.
  4. Once waffle maker is completely heated, lightly spray with non-stick cooking spray (I use coconut oil cooking spray) on both sides. Then, pour about ½ cup of batter onto waffle maker, close, and flip. Let cook for about 1 and ½ to 2 minutes. Flip waffle maker and open. If it needs a little be more time to cook, close and flip over, let cook for about 20-30 seconds longer.
  5. Use non-stick tongs to remove waffle from iron.

Tips & Notes

Almond milk: depending on your protein powder, you may need to add a splash more of almond milk as your batter sits out because it may thicken.
