Want to lean into that brunch vibe while also keeping things healthy? Us too! These high protein and high fiber matcha waffles are the perfect addition to your morning. They have about 10 grams of protein and about 5 grams of fiber per serving. No matter what your weekend plans are, these will be the perfect start.
Not only will these waffles keep you full and satisfied, the addition of matcha will delight your taste buds and give you a slight energy boost to power through your weekend. These waffles are fluffy and SO delicious. You won’t even realize that they’re healthy!
We loved these with maple syrup and blueberries, but strawberries, whipped cream and any other topping would be a great addition. You can even add some additional protein with an extra dollop of Greek yogurt on top. Don’t be afraid to get creative with your toppings!
How To Store
In our house, we like to make a big batch of waffles and then freeze them. We pull them out on busy mornings and pop them in the toaster for an easy, quick, and healthy breakfast.
These waffles can be stored in your refrigerator for up to 5 days.
You can also place any extra waffles in an air tight container in the freezer for up to 6 months. When you’re ready to eat them, simply place directly in the toaster (preferred) or heat them in the microwave.
What you'll need:
Whole wheat flour- Using whole wheat flour provides a few extra grams of fiber. Which is exactly what we want! Spoon flour into a measuring cup and use the back of a knife to gently wipe away any extra. This ensure you aren’t getting too much flour in your waffles, which can make them dense.
Oats- For this recipe, you need quick cooking oats so that they soften up instantly in the batter. Regular old-fashioned oats will leave you with a bit of a chewier texture.
Eggs & egg whites- Adding in two extra egg whites boosts the protein.
Greek yogurt- We always recommend using whole fat Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt is an excellent source of protein.
Milk- Opt for organic whole milk if you can.
Avocado oil- Avocado oil is a wonderful neutral tasting oil and is great for baking. It’s also a high quality and healthy fat.
Brown sugar- Brown sugar gives the waffles a sweet flavor with almost caramel undertones. Which matches the flavor of the matcha perfectly!
Baking Powder- This makes the waffles light and fluffy.
Matcha- Culinary grade matcha works best here. Be sure to sift your matcha before adding it to the batter in order to avoid clumps.
Vanilla- It’s 100% worth investing in real vanilla extract. Remember, the quality of ingredients that go in, dictate the quality of the product you end up with.
Salt- Best to use regular salt here. Flaky salt won’t mix in quite as well.
