Gluten-Free and Vegan Chocolate Banana Waffles

These Chocolate protein oat banana waffles are loaded with the goodness of protein powder, banana, and oats. They are vegan and gluten-free. 

Naturally sweet Oat Waffles

These waffles are also a good way to use your overripe bananas. I am not adding any additional sugar to these waffles. The sweetness comes from bananas and if your protein powder has sugar in it. Mine is sugar-free, and hence they are not overly sweet.

Recipes with overripe Bananas

If you are looking for recipes with overripe bananas, then try these Whole Wheat Mangalore Buns, Whole Wheat Banana Bread, Gluten-Free & Vegan Ragi Banana Cake (Processed Sugar-Free, Dairy-Free), Eggless Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes, Whole Wheat Chocolate Avocado Banana Muffins, Eggless Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes, and many more.

I love making pancakes and waffles and trying to be on a gluten-free diet I am trying to add it in different and interesting ways to my diet. Yes, diet need not be boring. Though a lot of Indian food is naturally vegan and gluten-free, still If you know me and the way I cook, I love to experiment and come up with new ideas.

I do make oat pancakes quite a lot with bananas. This time when Wendy Klik asked us to make chocolate breads for Valentine’s Day, I decided to make chocolate waffles, but again with a healthy twist. 

Yes,  you must be wondering, even for a Valentine’s Day celebration, she is making something healthy. But a few really cannot eat some food even on special occasions and I believe everyone should have an option. So I thought of coming up with a healthy pancake, if it helps someone, I would be thrilled.

So instead of simple chocolate or cocoa powder,  I added Chocolate Whey protein powder. A vegetarian needs his daily dose of protein and it is difficult to get at times. Many of us have protein powder daily in smoothies or oatmeal. So I used this interestingly. 

Sometimes it is difficult to consume the protein powder in smoothies or just as is, so I make this No-Bake Oats Protein Bar. They keep for long and one can enjoy when required.

Recipe process of Gluten-Free Chocolate Banana Waffles

Today’s recipe is of Chocolate Protein Oat Banana waffles is quite simple. All you do is add bananas, oats, chocolate protein powder, some baking powder, and milk or water. Mix everything and cook them in a waffle maker.

One can make pancakes using the same batter, I prefer to make waffles at times, as I need not babysit them. Just add the batter to the machine, let it cook and you are sorted.

Ingredients used in Chocolate Protein Oat Banana waffles

These choco-banana waffles do not have any added sugar apart from the one you have in your protein powder. I am using a protein powder with very little sugar in it or you can say it is sugar-free. One can replace it with cocoa powder.  

The sweetness in the waffles comes from bananas. So it is one of the best ways to use those overripe bananas. One can however add any sweetener like brown or white sugar, jaggery, maple syrup, or honey.

Dietary Suggestions

My protein powder is Vegan and Gluten-free. Check out your protein powder to see if it is. Oats are naturally gluten-free but they are handled in a gluten-free environment at times. So make sure you use 100 percent gluten-free oats.

My sister's doctor has recommended that she up her protein intake so I'm happy to have this recipe, Renu. I'll make her a batch and she can rewarm them in the toaster as needed. Lovely waffles!
