Protein Freezer Waffles

Remember when we broke the myth about meal prepping pancakes? Well, we are back to show you that you can do the same with freezer waffles. No longer are waffles saved only for weekends. With this easy high-protein waffle recipe, you can be enjoying them all week long. 

This protein-packed breakfast of champions is easy, fun to make, and is perfect for those on the go, go, go mornings. We are always looking for more ways to get protein into our diet. Recipes like Funfetti Puppy Chow and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough always hit the spot in the afternoon. However, at 7 am, before work, we are looking for something a little more substantial that will keep us going on all morning. These waffles did just that. 

These light and nutritious protein freezer waffles are a no-brainer breakfast choice with 23 grams of protein. They’re appetizing and something the bodybuilding Terminator Arnold Schwarzenegger would have for breakfast! Add maple syrup, almond butter, and fresh berries and you’ve got a super yummy and nutritious start to your day.

How long will Protein Freezer Waffles last for?

Homemade waffles last for up to 5 days in the refrigerator. But anything after three days you’re compromising the taste. The good thing about this freezer recipe is that it can be frozen, thus sealing in the taste. It only takes 5 minutes to prep so you can whip up another batch whenever you need to. 

Can Protein Freezer Waffles be frozen?

Yep, thus the name Protein Freezer Waffles! Homemade waffles last for up to three months in the freezer. Here’s how to freeze your powerhouse breakfast: 

  1. Cool them on a wire rack.
  2. Pre-freeze your waffles for six hours on a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  3. Pack pre-frozen protein waffles in an air-tight freezer bag.
  4. Label and store.

How do you make Protein Freezer Waffles?

We took our traditional gluten-free waffle recipe and added in one scoop of BiPro Bold Whey Protein powder in place of 1/4 cup oats. The result is a crispy and fluffy waffle that has the perfect amount of sweetness. 

Making the flavors fun. 

We kept the recipe basic so that you could play with the flavors until your heart is content. We used the unflavored whey protein here, but the creamy vanilla or chocolate milkshake BiPro Bold Protein Powders would also work well. If you are using the unflavored, you can play with the flavor extracts! For example, swap the vanilla for a coconut or mocha flavored extract. So yum! 

The unflavored protein powder doesn’t have any sweetener, so we added some maple syrup. However, if you are working with the creamy vanilla or chocolate milkshake flavors, adjust to your desired sweetness level. 

BiPro Bold Whey Protein Powder is our go-to brand for all things delicious! We love using their products because not only do they align with our eating styles, but their products:

  • Use only natural sweeteners and flavors 
  • Gluten-free 
  • Lactose-free 
  • No hormones 
  • No added sugars 

It’s just 23 grams of pure, delicious, lean, clean, protein! And man does it taste delicious! 

If you have a hankering for a savory waffle use all of the ingredients below minus the vanilla and maple syrup. Then add in some herbs such as Italian seasoning. Serve with eggs of choice and pizza sauce for dipping. Trust us; the combination is out of this world! 

The ingredient list is so short! You most likely have almost all of these ingredients on hand. Add your eggs and cottage cheese to a food processor or blender. Next, add in your oats, baking powder, vanilla, and maple syrup. Lastly, add in your protein powder. Then blend and cook.

How to portion Protein Freezer Waffles?

When it’s time to meal prep.

You can easily double or triple this recipe. The extras will keep in the freezer. Just lay them flat between parchment paper and put them in an airtight container. 

To meal prep, simply divide waffles into four meal prep containers. Triangle halves make it easy to dip waffles into maple syrup and almond butter. Put syrup and almond butter in a mini-meal prep cup.

Other tips for making Protein Freezer Waffles:

Any sides would be perfect with these protein waffles, but we chose to go with our favorites: berries, syrup, and almond butter. 

Some easy, helpful tips for enjoying this freezer recipe:

  1. Reheat waffles in a toaster or oven. 
  2. Be sure to pre-freeze waffles before freezing them. If you don’t, the waffles will turn lumpy and you can’t heat them in the toaster. 
  3. Other options would be greek yogurt (this would make the protein count even higher), a drizzle of hazelnut butter, butter, frozen berries that have been thawed to create a sauce, etc. 
  4. Explore different syrups options, butter alternatives, or even whipped cream! Kids will love that. Make your own or get it from the store. There are vegan whipped cream options too.
