I have made this waffle recipe so many times in the past few months and they have been a game changer! Absolutely love them and they are my favorite breakfast. I have learned that this mix expands a lot though, I've had my mix overflow several times. Put in much less than you would a typical waffle recipe. I also have been having problems with the waffles sticking to my waffle iron, which does not happen with other basic waffles. Any thoughts on that?

Glad you love the recipe, Emily! I definitely agree about putting in a bit less than you would think - I actually have a full video coming out with my tips on this soon. Regarding the mix sticking - we haven't had a problem with this (and we use a pretty standard waffle iron). We use avocado oil spray which likely really helps prevent the sticking. I hope this helps!


Hi Autumn! How many pancakes does 1 of your servings make? Do you eat 1 or 2 servings yourself to get the 35-50 grams of protein in? Thank you!!

Replying to

Hi! It depends on how big you make your pancakes. Usually I get about 3 pancakes from one serving. I eat one serving of pancakes typically and add some skyr yogurt as a topping to get about 35 grams of protein.


Hello autumn hope you are all doing well! I'm gonna confess I was very hesitant to try this recipe but everytime i watch your videos and you show this waffles it makes me drool. It has been om the back of my mind for a while and I finally decided to give it go today and omg am I pleasantly surprised! It's bomb! I even used greek yogurt and the stewed blueberries as topping and I love it! Thank you so much!

aw yay!! so glad you love it!


Will the Vanilla Bean Protein Waffle recipe work without the banana or the pumpkin puree?

Replying to

I haven't tested it without a base, but it might not come out very fluffy without the banana or pumpkin puree. If you try it, let me know how it turns out!
