Protein Waffles: Banana Chocolate Chip (only 5 Ingredients!)

banana chocolate chip protein waffles

Banana chocolate chip has to be one of the best flavour combos out there. It is one of the most popular types of muffin and is also famous as a quick bread. Used in protein waffles, it makes for a delicious and nutritious start to your day.
Making waffles using a mashed banana adds all that banana flavour while simultaneously adding moisture and creaminess. The banana in this recipe replaces butter or oil (so you can add it to the top instead 😉), giving these waffles a healthier profile.

Oat flour is a high fiber, nutritious alternative to wheat. It works especially well for anyone on a gluten-free diet. Just check your brand to be sure. I grind up my own oat flour by adding quick oats to a food processor and processing until I have a fine powder. You can also buy oat flour already ground!

Feel free to sub the some or all of egg whites for whole eggs. I keep cartons of liquid egg whites in my fridge and tend to grab those when I’m making protein waffles or pancakes, or for making French Toast or egg-white oatmeal.

Check out this delicious recipe for Caramelized Banana Protein French Toast with Cinnamon & Ginger. It has a super yummy cream cheese glaze!

Or this recipe for High Protein Oatmeal made with egg whites and topped with anything your hear desires! (like strawberries and Nutella!) 

Protein Waffles How-To

Protein waffles are fairly straightforward to make, especially if you have a non-stick waffle iron with an indicator light that lets you know when your waffle is cooked through.

I like this extremely well-priced one from Oster.

If your banana isn’t quite ripe enough to easily mash with a fork, a trick I like to use is to microwave it for 30 + seconds (depending on your microwave). I microwave it right in it’s peel. Just be careful when you retrieve it because it will be hot!

Whisk all of the ingredients except the chocolate chips together until well blended. 

Pour the mixture into the pre-heated iron. Even though my iron never has issues with batter sticking to it, I still like to grease it with a bit of oil just in case. Sometimes with protein waffles, there is more likelihood for sticking since they are oil-free.

Pour batter onto the iron and leave it open for a few seconds to set. This will prevent any batter from running over the iron and making a mess.

Next, add the chocolate chips to the top and close the iron. I love to use semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips in this recipe for extra chocolatey flavour!

Now, simply wait until the indicator light let’s you know the waffle is done, or check for yourself to see if it is crispy and golden brown. Make sure not to have your iron too high or let it sit for too long so that the chocolate chips do not burn.

Top with your favourite toppings such as maple syrup, peanut butter (mmmm), sliced banana, whipped cream…. and enjoy!
