Grain free waffles made with Life’s Abundance Vanilla Plant Protein are a great way to start the day with more protein and vanilla flavor. Original post on the Life's Abundance blog.
They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. While hearty dinner lovers might disagree, one thing’s for sure: with this grain free waffle recipe, your mornings will feel more important while you savor these crave-worthy waffles.
This 4-step recipe uses our newer, smoother Vanilla Plant Protein to make fluffy, protein-packed waffles (each one weighs in around 23 grams of protein per waffle!). And there’s a bonus: they come together fast in a blender and freeze well, too. So you can toss ‘em in the toaster for a quick, hot breakfast that’s healthy and satisfying, without the grains.
Inspired by Dr. Mark Hyman’s grain free waffle recipe, you know these waffles are clean, lean and made to complement a wholesome lifestyle.
Top them off with your favorite nut or seed butter and fresh berries. Or make them a little fancy with a dollop of whipped coconut cream and a sprinkle of cacao powder. Are you hungry yet?
Note: this recipe makes two large Belgian-style waffles.

*Coconut flour gives these waffles more texture and structure, but the recipe works without it if you don’t have it on hand.
Our plant-based, vegan protein powder is a nutrient-rich blend of clean, high-quality proteins including pea, chia, pumpkin, hemp and quinoa. Now with an even smoother, creamier texture, our Vanilla Plant Protein adds a big protein punch to your favorite baked goods. Try it in oatmeal, cakes, or muffins to make any recipe more nutrient dense and wherever you want to add more vanilla flavor.
Enjoy your day!
