Greek Yogurt Waffles

Jun 15, 2022

Our Greek yogurt waffles are extra high protein thanks to the combination of Greek yogurt, egg whites, and protein powder. Enjoy them post-workout or anytime you need a meal that keeps you energized and fuelled for hours!

As Registered Dietitians, we are often recommending that clients give their protein a boost at breakfast time. A breakfast with 30g or more of protein is a great way to stay full until lunch and reduce cravings through the day thanks to the hunger satisfying effect of protein-rich foods. If you choose to eat the entire batch (like we do!) the total protein in these waffles comes to 45g. However, if you'd like a lighter meal you could always eat a ½ serving!

I will say that these waffles are slightly dry because the protein powder soaks up a lot of the liquid. Fresh fruit, thawed frozen berries, chia seed jam, or a drizzle of maple syrup is an essential addition to add some moisture back to these waffles!

  • ⅓ cup (30g) oats
  • ⅓ cup (75g) plain Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup (65g) egg whites
  • 1 scoop (30g) protein powder
  • ⅛ teaspoon baking powder
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt


  1. Make oat flour by blending ⅓ cup of old-fashioned rolled oats in a small hand blender.
  2. Combine the oats with the Greek yogurt, egg whites, protein powder, baking powder, and salt
  3. Pour the batter into a prepared waffle iron. You can make two large waffles or four mini waffles (as shown).
  4. Garnish with desired toppings. We used fresh strawberries for volume and shredded coconut for fat! 


We recommend adding healthy fats for toppings (eg. coconut flakes, seeds, or nut butter) to give the waffles more staying power and volume (eg. fresh or thawed berries) for antioxidants and color! Furthermore, the toppings spruce up the waffles making them extra flavourful! We did a fresh combo of strawberries and coconut but you can get creative with endless combos like peanut butter and banana, almond butter and blueberries, or chia jam!
