Notes

  • Lupin flour is really high in protein compared to other flours which makes this a high protein waffles recipes.
  • If you don’t have lupin flour, you can replaced it with other flours such as chickpea flour (which is quite high in protein) or you could use regular gluten free flour.
  • You may need to add a bit more milk if your protein powder absorbs more water.
  • You can use plant based proteins or whey protein. Some protein powder can be gritty and grainy which creates drier and grainy waffles instead of soft and fluffy waffles.
  • You can use regular caster sugar if you don’t have zero calories sugar free sweetener.
  • You can omit creams and have it plain with berries. You can add more powdered sweetener or fruits instead.
  • This recipe makes about 8 waffles.
  • You can use plant based milk or dairy milk.
