High Protein Waffles (and Accidently Gluten-free too!)


This is my newest waffle recipe that I’ve created. My mom gave me a bag of quinoa flour for Christmas, so here is a high-protein waffle that uses a mix of the quinoa flour and brown rice flour making it gluten-free as well.  The waffle pictured above has a schmear of Chocolate Peanut Butter Hummus, sliced bananas, and a sprinkle of organic cinnamon. Drizzle with a touch of honey or pure maple syrup if you would like. 🙂

  • 1 cup quinoa flour

  • 1 cup brown rice flour

  • 1-2 ripe bananas, mashed

  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • 1 cup almond milk

  • 1 cup water

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/4 cup extra light virgin olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted

  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • dash of salt

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional but delicious!)

  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed (also optional but very healthy and nutty!)

Mix flours, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, and flax  together in a large bowl. Mash the bananas in another bowl and then add in the wet (which are the remaining) ingredients. Stir until well-mixed. Add the wet mixture into the flour mixture and stir until combined. Cook according to your waffle maker’s directions.
My waffle maker usually produces 4-5 large waffles with this whole recipe.
