Fluffy, crispy, SO delicious vegan protein waffles made with gluten-free oats and just 6 other simple ingredients – perfect for meal prep!


  • 1 1/2 cups (120g) rolled or quick oats
  • 1/3 cup (35g) unflavored protein powder*
  • 1 cup (240g) coconut milk (or nondairy milk of choice)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • Optional: 1 tsp cinnamon + 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Blend the oats to a fine flour.
  2. Transfer to a bowl and add the baking powder, salt, and protein powder. Whisk to combine.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and whisk again to form a thick batter.
  4. Preheat your waffle iron and spray with non-stick spray.
  5. Pour 1/4 cup of batter per waffle into the iron, and cook on low heat until golden brown.
  6. Repeat until all the batter is gone (I got 6 eggo-sized waffles).
  7. Top with berries, syrup, etc., and enjoy.


*You can play with the protein powder to flour ratio to make them higher in protein, at this ratio the protein powder flavor is completely undetectable which I personally prefer!
