Earlier this week, I set out to make delicious, healthy waffles. I compared all of my favorite recipes and figured out what it was that I liked about each one, made a few extra tweaks, then tested several batches. This is what I ended up with, and they’re not just delicious for healthy waffles – they’re flat-out delicious. I love when things work out like that!
Each of these protein-packed waffles is as light as a cloud, with a crispy, crackle-y crust and a center that’s so light it practically disappears. (You know the way cotton candy evaporates in your mouth? The center of these reminds me of that!) Malted milk powder gives them a hefty punch of bold flavor, and protein powder means they’ll keep you full all day. There’s some whole wheat flour in there too, but I promise you’ll never be able to tell.
These waffles are best straight off the iron, but they can also be frozen and toasted for an easy grab-and-go breakfast. The flavor of these is complex, so I don’t like to cover them up with syrup. Just give me some freshly whipped cream and summer berries and I’m a happy camper!
