Performance Healthy Waffles

Performance Healthy Waffles

By: Lisa Holmen

These waffles are full of healthy wholemeal goodness and they are refined sugar-free. To further increase your protein intake, add a scoop or two of your favourite protein powder to the mix. Rolled oats can be used in the recipe, but if they aren’t blitzed in a blender, the mixture can be quite thick. If using whole rolled oats, reduce the cooking time of the waffles a little to prevent them from burning.



Prep time

Cook time



  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk or plant-based milk
  • 2 bananas, mashed
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 cup rolled oats, blitzed in blender (or oat flour)
  • 1 cup wholemeal flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch salt
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp protein powder (optional)


  • Preheat the waffle iron. In a bowl, whisk the eggs and add the milk, bananas, vanilla essence and maple syrup. Mix well to combine.
  • Add the dry ingredients in a large bowl and whisk. Add the wet mixture and mix until well combined.
  • Brush melted butter or spray oil over the waffle iron until well coated. This will prevent the waffles from sticking.
  • Pour approx. half a cup of batter into the waffle iron and close the lid.
  • Cook the waffles for approximately 2–3 mins until golden brown. Repeat until all the batter is used up. Cooking time will vary depending on the type of waffle iron you are using.
  • Serve with raspberry jam and fresh cream or coconut yoghurt.
