These Soft & Fluffy Protein Waffles are a delicious and nutrition-packed way to start the day! Two BIG waffles with 15g of protein and practically melt in your mouth.


I’m not always following a Weight Watchers plan, but I do love following lots of WW instagram accounts just to scope out new recipes and fun products. One of my favorite WW accounts is @mudhustler, creator of the Big A** Waffle, which is a waffle made out of Quest protein powder, pancake mix, and an egg white. It’s an awesome way to get your protein in while feeling like you’re eating a treat! I’m sharing a modified version that I like even better.

These are the BEST protein waffles on the internet!

A FEW THINGS TO NOTE ABOUT THIS RECIPE:

  • If you go to Mudhustler’s original recipe, he calls for Kodiak Cakes pancake mix. However, I’m switching that up and using a regular pancake mix instead. That’s the key to making these just as soft and fluffy as regular waffles, and it doesn’t change the nutrition all that drastically. I used Great Value Complete Pancake Mix from Walmart– but any just add water pancake mix should do the trick!
  • Just like Mudhustler suggests, I used Quest Salted Caramel Protein Powder. However, I’ve used different brands and flavors in the past, and it worked out just fine. Quest has a vanilla powder that I want to try in this recipe next. But I will say that the Salted Caramel powder makes these waffles smell AMAZING while they are cooking!
  • This recipe will make TWO waffles, but it’s just ONE serving. Make sense? Because I’m subbing out the kodiak cakes, there is a lot more leavening in this recipe than in Mudhuster’s original recipe. Which means the batter gets a LOT bigger– which means it overflows if you put it all in the waffle iron at once. So be patient and make two, and then eat them both 🙂
  • My waffle maker is similar to this Cuisinart Belgian waffle maker. I don’t know how this recipe will cook up in other types of waffle makers, so you’ll have to experiment a little to find what works if you’re not using something similar to mine.
