Greek yogurt is a great substitution for oil in a lot of baked goods and provides a lot of benefits! Not only does it make the waffles incredibly moist, but it also adds more protein making the recipe more satiating and macro-friendly!

An important note to keep in mind is that you will need some type of waffle maker for this recipe, however, the type is not entirely important. If all you have is a mini waffle maker this recipe will make great mini waffles. I use my Dash waffle maker which is perfect for this recipe because it makes 4 waffles. This recipe makes 1 serving, so you get all 4 waffles in one sitting! Yum.

Can I add protein powder to my waffles?

Adding protein powder to your waffles is a great way to get in more protein to start your day, however, it takes away from the classic buttermilk flavor we love about waffles. Adding greek yogurt to your waffles adds protein to them without the chalky flavor of protein powder leaving only the classic waffle flavor that we all love so much! 

Are protein waffles good for you? 

Protein waffles are great for you because it is providing a well-balanced meal of carbohydrates, protein, and fats. Versus just plain waffles that are typically just carbohydrates and fats and do not provide the satiety that comes with higher protein meals.

Why do you add greek yogurt to protein waffles?

There are many reasons why you would want to add greek yogurt to your waffles;

  • Adding greek yogurt replaces oil in waffles making them lower in calories
  • Adding greek yogurt also adds a lot of moisture to the recipe
  • Greek yogurt also adds more protein to the waffles which creates a perfectly balanced breakfast to start your day

Can you add flavored greek yogurt to these waffles?

Adding flavored greek yogurt to this recipe would taste amazing! I love using plain fat-free greek yogurt, but vanilla, blueberry, or really any flavor yogurt would be a great addition to this recipe!

How do I keep my waffles from getting soggy?

Greek yogurt is great for making waffles because of the benefits listed above, but since it adds moisture to the recipe, you want to make sure the waffles are still crispy and tender and not soggy as you go to eat them. In order to make sure these waffles are not extremely soggy is to make sure after cooking them you allow them to cool on a cooling rack and not on a plate. Placing the waffles immediately on a plate after cooking allows the moisture to build up underneath the waffles with nowhere to escape creating a soggy bottom! (GBBS reference there if you know you know.)

Should you let your waffle batter sit?

Yes, you should, letting the batter sit for at least 10 minutes allows the batter to expand allowing for larger waffles that rise better resulting in a more tender waffle when cooked.

Should my waffle batter be thin or thick?

When poured it should move slowly and not be extremely runny. You want it to be thicker than a cake batter, but not as thick as cookie dough. It should be very much the same as a pancake batter if you are familiar with that consistency.

What is the best waffle maker to use?

As I noted above, any waffle maker you have will work great it may just make a different number of waffles depending on the size. My favorite to use is this Dash waffle maker because it is a perfect size and makes 4 waffles.

What other toppings can you add to the greek yogurt protein waffles?

There are endless ideas when it comes to toppings for these waffles, here are some of my favorites;

  • Blueberries 
  • Mini chocolate chips
