With my marathon behind me, and still on a high about beating a BQ by almost 20 minutes, it’s time to buckle down for the next event- Bodybuilding show on SATURDAY!!

Yeah, call me crazy. But for those people who think you can’t be a distance runner AND a bodybuilder, I think you can.

Clearly, if you are an elite athlete you’d have to choose. But, if you are a recreational competitor and only competing against yourself each year (which is me), than I say GO FOR IT!! So that’s what I decided to do.

So, this is officially peak week and I’m trying to squeak those last few muscle gains outs. Which requires me to make some

Waffles are a great way to start your day. And the best thing I like to do with waffles is add protein and chocolate!

While these waffles might not win any cooking contests, you can bet I feel like I’m eating a treat every time I make them.

How to make classic protein waffles into chocolate

So, for these waffles, I took my classic protein waffle recipe with a few substitutions.

  • I first subbed vanilla protein powder for chocolate protein powder. While I like Optimum Nutrition, for chocolate I used Clean Simple Eats chocolate.
  • I added a stevia packet because I didn’t feel like the chocolate was sweet enough to taste like dessert. And I really like sweet things. You can leave this out, but I like it a little sweeter.
  • And finally, I used vanilla extract. On my classic protein waffles, I like the almond extract!

If you like the classic waffles or chocolate waffles, you’ve got to try the Birthday Cake protein waffles next!

    Looks good when it comes out, but I used two eggs instead of egg whites, and the texture is really dry and tastes a bit off. Will have to play around with this recipe a little more…thanks for providing a reference point though.

    1. You could replace the egg whites with 2 eggs.If you want to make waffles with JUST protein powder and water, I’ve done that too, but it turns out pretty rubbery.Definitely experiment and see if you can get it to have the right texture.

    It was very rubbery and tasted so much like egg. The chocolate flavour was near non-existent. If you do try this recipe, I recommend adding cocoa powder and maybe substituting a 1/4 cup of egg whites for Greek yogurt since the flavour of egg was so strong

    1. Hi Hailey!
      I’ve definitely been trying to find the right protein powders for baking. They are all quite different. Can you share the brand you used? Some brands I’ve tried are rubbery, while others give me a crisper waffle. I’d love to keep track of these.

  3. 5 stars
    Regarding the macros… doesn’t this depend on the size of the waffle iron, and waffle itself?
    What is the macros for the whole mix batch, please?

    1. Hi Steve, the calories and macros are per serving if you use 1/2 cup of batter. The batter is 2 cups, so 1/4 of it (1/2 cup) would be one serving, no matter what size your waffle iron is. Does that make sense?
