Peanut Butter Protein Waffles


  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup self raising flour or plain
  • OR 1/4 cup plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder (only if using plain flour)
  • 1/4 cup almond meal
  • 40g whey protein powder of your choice (we like chocolate, vanilla or caramel!)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 3 tbsp peanut butter
  • OR 3 tbsp nut butter of your choice
  • 1 tsp maple syrup (add more to serve)


  • Combine flour, almond meal, protein powder and baking powder (if using) into a deep bowl. Mix well with a whisk until ingredients are well combined.
  • In the same bowl add all wet ingredients (egg, milk, vanilla essence, peanut butter and maple syrup) and continue stirring vigorously.
  • Pour batter into an already hot waffle iron and allow to cook to the desired consistency. The longer they're left in, the crispier it'll become.
  • Serve with preferred toppings or as specified in your program.

Gluten-free variation: Use gluten-free self-raising flour

FODMAP friendly variation: Ensure you use a FODMAP friendly protein powder. These don’t contain sugar alcohols (typically end in an ‘ols’) and are made from plant-based sources to avoid the inclusion of lactose.
Remove almond meal and replace with ground walnuts and seeds.

Dairy-free/Lactose-free: Use your preferred milk alternative and opt for a plant-based protein powder.
