What’s a brookie? I’m so glad you asked.

A brookie is the smashing together of a cookie and a brownie! Hence: brookie.

I wanted to create my own version in waffle form, but I didn’t want to simply stack a brownie waffle on top of a chocolate chip cookie waffle. Sure, that would have worked fine, but I wanted to come up with a single waffle to rule them all.

And my friends, I’ve got that for you!

Protein Brookie Waffles

We’re going to create 2 separate protein waffle batters, but combine them into one big Belgian waffle.

The result is a decadent, chocolately waffle that will not dissappoint your taste buds.

Plus, with 375 calories and 32g of protein, why wouldn’t you want to whip this up for breakfast?

Get the full recipe below! And if a savory breakfast is more your style, be sure to check out my Buttery Breakfast Sandwich recipe.

 

Note: the ingredients list might look long, but don’t panic! These 2 batters are essentially the same ingredients, with a couple of differences to transform one into a chocolate brownie batter.

Protein Brookie Waffles

Yield: 1 Belgian Waffle
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes

The best of both worlds: a brownie & a chocolate chip cookie, together in one delicious, protein-packed waffle!

Ingredients

Brownie Waffle Batter

  • 10g Vanilla Protein (I use PEScience which is a whey/casein blend)
  • 10g Oat Flour
  • 10g Cocoa Powder
  • 5g Granular Sugar Substitute
  • 1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Egg
  • 60g Canned Pumpkin / Pumpkin Puree
  • 1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 7g Chocolate Chips
  • Pinch Salt

Cookie Waffle Batter

  • 10g Vanilla Protein (I use PEScience which is a whey/casein blend)
  • 10g Oat Flour
  • 10g Powdered Peanut Butter
  • 5g Granular Sugar Substitute
  • 1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Egg
  • 60g Canned Pumpkin / Pumpkin Puree
  • 1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 7g Chocolate Chips
  • Pinch Salt

Instructions

  1. Plug your waffle maker in to let it start preheating
  2. In two separate bowls, mix up all of the dry ingredients for your waffle batter.
  3. Whisk up one egg in a bowl. Pour roughly half into each bowl, then mix in all of the other liquid ingredients with a silicone spatula until you have 2 thick waffle batters. Then, fold in the chocolate chips.
  4. When the waffle maker is fully heated up, spray generously with nonstick spray. Add your brownie waffle batter to the center, and then the cookie waffle batter directly on top. Don't worry about it not going to the edges- it's going to spread! Close the waffle maker and let the magic happen.
  5. Top with syrup or some more melted chocolate and dive in!

Notes

  • While I used a whey/casein protein powder, you can use a regular whey protein powder for a great result. I do not think a vegan protein powder will work as well, though.
