Why protein waffles?
A recipe book devoted to protein powder 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 protein waffles, it is much more than that for me.
All your questions answered.
How do I access the book after purchasing?
Check your email- you’ll receive a download link to access your .pdf ebook. Remember, this is not a physical book, and you will be downloading the e-book to view on any of your devices.
Are there only protein waffle recipes in this book?
Yes, this is a recipe 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.
If you’re a pancake fan, you can use the recipes in this book to turn any of these protein waffles into protein pancakes.
Do I need protein powder?
Yes, these are protein powder waffles, so you’ll need to get yourself some protein powder. I use PEScience for my protein powder waffles, which is a blend of whey & casein protein and my favorite protein powder to use (Code “matt” saves you 15% on it as well). I have successfully tested with whey protein as well, and it works great, so any protein powder you have should work just fine (we use a small amount, because we don’t want these to taste like protein powder).
If you do not have protein powder, the dairy free version of the recipes does not require any protein powder.
I don’t have a waffle maker! What should I do?
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.
Are these protein waffles keto friendly?
No, we don’t shy away from carbs here, so they won’t work on a keto diet.
These protein waffles are naturally lower carb than traditional waffles due to the protein being added in, but these will not be suitable for a diet that is extremely low carb, and they are not considered keto waffles.
What is the nutrition information for these protein waffles?
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!
What’s the most protein in any single recipe?
The highest protein content is the chicken & waffles, with 63g of protein per serving!
I’m gluten-free, can I eat these protein waffles?
The protein waffle mix that we’re creating in this book has a specific gluten-free version that I have enjoyed countless times for myself even though I am not gluten-free.
Outside of the base mix, there are gluten free substitutions for most recipes.
I’m vegan/dairy-free, can I eat these waffles?
The protein waffle mix that we’re creating in this book has a specific dairy-free version that I have enjoyed countless times for myself, and have been tested by many others.
Outside of the base mix, there are dairy-free substitutions & recommendations for most recipes 🙂
Do these protein waffles contain artificial sweeteners or sugar substitutes?
I utilize a sugar substitute (typically erythritol).
Personally, artificial sweeteners/substitutes 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)
I have a nut allergy. Are your recipes safe?
Most are! If you are gluten-free or dairy-free, I do use an almond flour in the base protein waffle mix, but the standard recipe contains no nuts.
Specific recipes may call for nut butter, but it’s very easy to make substitutions.
If you have any specific allergen concerns, please email me (matt [at] cheatdaydesign.com) and I’d be happy to clear anything up.
I’ve had protein waffles before and they just taste like whatever protein powder you use. Will I like these?
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 traditional “protein waffles” either. I mean, they just taste like protein powder.
These protein waffles are going to be better than any other waffle you’ve had for breakfast, let alone soggy protein waffles. If you’re in search of a delicious crispy waffle, your search is officially over.
Do I need specific ingredients to make these recipes?
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 brands that I use and recommend, but you can use others that are available to you. Don’t worry, I have recommendations within the book as well!
For a quick breakdown, these are the main ingredients you’ll need for the standard waffle mix inside:
- White Whole Wheat Flour or All Purpose Flour
- Oat Flour (You can easily make your own by blending up oats)
- Vital Wheat Gluten
- Buttermilk Powder
- Baking Powder
- Vanilla Protein Powder (Tested with both whey protein powder and a whey/casein blend)
That mix is designed to be “just add milk” so you will not need to add any vanilla extract, coconut oil, etc. However, just note that each recipe will require its own additional ingredients!
You can check out most of the staple ingredients in my Amazon Storefront, and there are alternative options inside the e-book.
Specific recipes will call for some ingredients such as peanut butter, whipped cream, cocoa powder, maple syrup, etc, but with 100 different recipes, you’ll be able to work around any ingredients you do not have.
Can I make these waffles as part of my meal prep?
Sure! The standard recipe assumes you’ll be making Belgian protein waffles, but they’ll all work if you make smaller waffles too (or mini waffles). If you make smaller waffles, you can freeze them to have frozen waffles ready to go at any moment- just pop them into the toasted and be ready to go.
I’ve also included instructions on how to prep your mix in bulk, so you can simply scoop out a serving and make a protein waffle quickly.
Are these recipes difficult to make?
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 adding milk to the protein waffle mix to make a waffle batter. I use almond milk, but truly any type of milk will work great.
I wanted these recipes to be very easy, so you won’t need to mess with cottage cheese, egg whites, Greek yogurt, etc.
Let’s cut to the chase- cleaning a waffle maker is the worst.
Not a question, but I hear you.
Cleaning a waffle maker is actually very simple. I’ve included instructions on how to clean your waffle maker based on how dirty it has become. In most cases, all you need to do is wipe away any excess cooking spray or oil, but if it’s really dirty, I’ve included simple directions to get it looking good as new.
Whenever I try to make my own protein waffles from scratch, they don’t turn out. What happens if I’m still struggling?
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 matt [at] cheatdaydesign.com and we can troubleshoot together.
Do you offer a refund?
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!
