Three Ingredient Proatmeal Waffles

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Some mornings you just want waffles and you don’t really want to wait. This weekend I decided to be proactive and meal prep for The Kid so I made a huge batch of waffles and then froze them in a leftover lettuce container. One of those rectangular shaped ones with the hinged lid. Two stacks of waffles fit in them side by side perfectly. Pop the lid on and they were ready for the deep freeze.

Every morning this week, I’ve made my coffee and popped one in the toaster for her to eat on the way to school. Speaking of toaster. It was a sad moment when I had to retire my old bargain toaster. When I moved to Texas almost 12 years ago, there was a sale on small kitchen electronics at Target. Toasters were $2.50 each. Yep, you read that right.

I snagged one (along with my waffle maker), and it served me faithfully until recently when it started burning everything regardless of the setting. I had to pay out the ying yang for a replacement. $8.99! Highway robbery. šŸ˜‰ Fingers crossed the waffle maker holds out.

Since The Kid can’t be the only one having waffles, I decided to make my own batch.

  • 1/2 cup (40g) old fashioned oats
  • 1 scoop(42g) protein powder, divided
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • Sploosh of water

Measure your oats and grind them into a flour using a food processor or Magic Bullet. In a small bowl, mix the oat flour, 3/4 scoop protein powder, and almond milk. Add just enough water to make waffle batter consistency. Bake in a preheated waffle iron according to the waffle maker instructions.

Mix the remaining 1/4 scoop of protein with water to make an icing and drizzle over top of the waffles. Enjoy! Get crazy and throw sprinkles on it you want to get fancy.


  • I usually grind a larger batch of oats into flour so that I have it on hand instead of making it as I go. When I’m in the mood for these waffles, I just measure out 40 grams worth and mix the batter.
  • My favorite protein powder for taste purposes is Phase 8 by Muscletech. It’s a blend of protein powders and not an isolate. Your results may vary depending on the protein you use. If you try an isolate or different protein, let me know how it turns out for you. I will say that the chocolate and chocolate peanut butter flavors turned out perfectly. The vanilla and white chocolate stick to the waffle maker and turn out crispy and weird. I’ve NO clue why as it’s the same blends, same macros, same brand, everything.

Despite the crispy, weird texture of the non-chocolate flavors, I ate them any way. They tasted fine if you overlooked that they fell apart into crumbs. Hey, I’ll eat anything when I’m hungry. You may not have the tolerance I do. Let me know what brands and flavors you try so I can give more waffles a whirl. šŸ™‚
