Are protein waffles good if you are trying to lose weight
Losing weight is as simple as counting calories and eating less. You can eat traditional waffles and still lose weight. (See my weight loss story HERE)
Where waffles become a problem for weight loss, is that they can be so tasty, it’s hard to control your portions.
Additional calories can be added to toppings, which can make it difficult for you to stick to your calorie limit for weight loss. It’s easy to get out of control when you add syrup, butter or chocolate toppings.
Finally, traditional waffle recipes often lack protein. This can cause you to feel hungry quicker than if you had some protein in your breakfast.
Can I add protein powder in my waffle recipes?
Any waffle recipe can be made with regular protein powder. I like to start with just a tablespoon. This ensures that the consistency is good enough for waffle batter. You won’t even notice the difference, I promise.
Ingredients in homemade birthday cake protein waffles
This waffle was made with my classic recipe. I only made one change: I substituted vanilla extract for cake batter extract. You can find cake batter extract in a baking aisle with all the other extracts. McCormick’s has one here, as I’m sure other brands might have one as well.
To calculate the calories and macros, I used the Optimum Nutrition vanilla powder. You can make your vanilla protein powder but you might need to adjust the calories and macros according to your nutrition label.
This recipe might be a good one for you.
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl.
Spray a waffle maker with nonstick cooking spray. Put batter in a waffle iron, and cook until it is no longer runny
