Why waffles?

A recipe book devoted to waffles might seem silly, but it’s much more than that. Knowing what/how to eat is really damn confusing.

I want to help show you that eating healthy can still be fun.

No, these aren’t salads, but they’re fun, simple, healthy ways to get extra protein into your diet. And for so many out there, eating enough protein is a difficult thing to do.

Waffles encompass everything that I believe is important when it comes to food: simple recipes, simple ingredients, delicious food, and most importantly, fun. Waffles have a way of transporting us right back into childhood, and the recipes allow us to let our imaginations run wild.

At the end of the day, while this is a recipe book of waffles, it is much more than that.

Yes, this is a waffle book exclusively for waffles. However, there are “bonus” recipes that go along with your waffles- fried chicken, healthy coleslaw, buttercream frosting, and much much more.

On top of the recipes, I’ve also got a ton of extra information and resources for you: cooking tips, cleaning instructions, substitutions, recommended equipment, etc.

I created this book to be as easy as possible- almost all the recipes start with a "base" mix that I came up with (after tons and tons of tries), which is a plain protein waffle. Most recipes build on that, because I want you to be able to prep a whole bunch of mix and make different waffles without having to spend hours prepping each one.

Some recipes are as simple as adding a few ingredients, but others have much more to them. That's the beauty of this book- there is a ton of variety based on your tastes, preferences, and skill level.

If you want a recipe book where each recipe is 100% different, requires completely unique ingredients, and a ton of time to prep, I suppose you won't like this book!

Get yourself one ASAP! Allow me to help:

I highly, highly recommend the Cusinart Double Belgian Waffle Maker. Yes, it makes two at a time! This is the one I use and it is so much better than any others I've tried. Check it out.

If that feels like too much, you can go one step down and get Cusinart's Belgian Waffle Maker that only makes one (so it's cheaper). Check it out.

I don't recommend buying a cheap waffle maker because they always seem to break, but if you MUST, just know that there are plenty of cheap options out there! I recommend sticking with a Belgian waffle maker, but any waffle maker will work. Here is one under $20.

No, we don’t shy away from carbs here, so they won’t work on a keto diet.

Each recipe is going to vary (don’t worry, the book includes this info for every waffle), but here is the nutritional information for one plain waffle:

  • 190 Calories
  • 1.5g Fat
  • 28.5g Carbs (3g fiber & 3g sugar)
  • 15g Protein

These numbers are slightly different for the gluten-free & vegan versions, but very similar!

Keep in mind that this is assuming you use all of the same ingredients & brands as I do, so there is likely going to be variation in each recipe. But this should give you a general idea!

The highest protein content is the chicken & waffles, with 63g of protein per serving!

There are gluten-free substitutions for most recipes 🙂

There are vegan substitutions for most recipes 🙂

They do. Personally, artificial sweeteners do not bother me. That being said, they are not required ingredients, and any recipe that calls for sugar substitute can easily be made with real sugar, or another sweetener of your choice (I explain further in the book)

Most are! There are some exceptions, like the peanut butter waffle, but the base recipe does not contain any nuts. If you have any other allergen concerns, please email me at matt@cheatdaydesign.com and I’d be happy to clear anything up.

It took me many tries, but I created a base recipe that doesn’t taste like protein powder at all! Quite frankly, I’m not a fan of “protein waffles” either. I can promise you, these have the taste and texture of everyday waffles!

I understand there are people reading this from all over the world, and I know some ingredients may not be available to everyone. I’ve included all of the specifics brands that I use and recommend, but you can use others that are available to you.

Sure! The standard recipe assumes you’ll be making Belgian waffles, but they’ll all work if you make smaller waffles too. Feel free to freeze them and throw them into the toaster or oven for a quick meal.

I've also included instructions on how to prep your mix in bulk, so you can simply scoop out a serving and make a waffle quickly.

No way! I wanted to make these as easy as possible to whip up. Almost every single recipe is a “just add liquid” recipe, with the exception of any toppings or mix-ins required. The standard waffle is just your powdered mixture + water or milk! No eggs or oil required.

Not a question, but I hear ya. I’ve included simple step-by-step instructions in this book on how I clean my waffle maker. Don’t worry, it’s way easier than you think.

All sales of the book are final. I would truly love to be able to offer you a refund if you are unhappy, but I can’t run the risk of people buying the book, saving the pdf, and then getting their money back. I hope that once you read through this whole page that you will know exactly what you are buying and there are no surprises or disappointment.

I may be able to make an exception if you are in another country and some staple ingredients are unobtainable for you. That shouldn't be the case, but let me know if it is!

Well, there are many reasons why your waffle may not be turning out. This book has tons of tips to help you perfect your waffles, but if you’re still having a hard time, you can reach out to me and we can troubleshoot together.

If you still have questions, email me directly at matt@cheatdaydesign.com and I’ll be happy to help!

thank you.

Whether or not you decide to buy this recipe book, I just want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. The support from everyone is what makes this possible. I mean, if nobody valued what I bring to the table (literally), there would be no reason to create this book.

I’m on a never-ending quest to help the world understand the basics of nutrition and healthy eating, and I love every second of that mission. I hope this book can help to be a major piece of accomplishing that.

Healthy eating doesn’t have to be so confusing, and it certainly doesn’t have to be boring. I want this book to prove that to you.

Thank you again.
