Feel free to make this your own by adding a little extract or some spices. My favorite version was apple cinnamon.


  • 48 g (approx. 2 scoops) Perfect Keto vanilla whey protein powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp sour cream
  • 1 large egg
  • Coconut or avocado oil spray to grease the waffle iron
  • (optional) 1/4-1/2 tsp each your favorite extract (apple is nice this time of year) and cinnamon or similar spices, if desired


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the protein powder and baking powder.
  2. Add the sour cream and egg to the bowl (and any other flavorings you’d like) and whisk until it comes together into a smooth batter. It takes a good minute or so of whisking before it smooths out so don’t be concerned if it looks iffy when you start.
  3. In a pre-heated waffle iron (Dash or similar), lightly spray a little oil on the top and bottom of the iron then add approx. 2 tbsp batter and close the lid. Let it cook until it’s mostly stopped steaming and it looks golden and crisp when you lift the lid.
  4. Gently remove the cooked waffle and repeat, lightly spraying the waffle iron in between every 1-2 waffles to prevent sticking. You should get 6 small, round waffles per recipe.
  5. Serve as desired and enjoy!
