A few months ago a recipe was going around Instagram with the hashtag #1carbwaffle. You KNOW I wasn’t going to let that one pass by without trying it out to share with you guys. So, at midnight on a school night when I should have been asleep, I crept into the kitchen and fired up my waffle iron. Our version doesn’t get down quite as low as 1g of carbs, but it’s pretty close.
Fluffy Protein Waffles and Pancakes
What’s in a high-protein, low-carb waffle? To make these you’ll need the following ingredients:
- 1st Phrm Protein Powder – Level1 Chocolate
- Baking Powder
That’s it! Four very simple ingredients.
Low Carb Waffle Toppings
One of the most dangerous things with waffles and pancakes is the desire to drown them in sugary syrup. Instead, top with some fruit or even a bit of sugar-free whipped cream.
Low Carb Waffles and Pancakes Recipe
Here’s my recipe. You can make these into either waffles or pancakes, they both work great.
1 scoop 1st Phorm protein powder (I used Level1 chocolate, but it’s great with just about anything)
1 tsp baking powder
Enough water to reach a batter consistency (for waffles, you want this thicker; for pancakes, you want it thinner)
Mix the protein powder and baking powder together first. Then add the egg and water. Whisk well and pour into greased waffle iron or a hot, greased skillet. (I spray mine w/ coconut oil).
Macros for the whole batch (which should 1 one waffle or several pancakes) are: 210 cal, 5c, 7f, 30p plus whatever you add for topping.
I usually make chocolate ones and add whipped cream. Maple syrup and butter are great if you can fit it into your macros. I’ve even seen this used as the base for pizzas, eggs, or sandwich bread. Get creative!
