Big Ass Waffle

February 14, 2017

If you are on Weight Watcher Connect or Instagram, and you love pancakes/waffles, you should be following mudhustler_official for some tasty and low point recipe ideas. He has had great success on Weight Watchers and shares some awesome recipes on his Instagram page. He makes a variety of delicious foods, but the pancake/waffle batter is my favorite right now.

I like his humor and attitude.

“If you’re wicked smart you can eat like a fat kid and still lose weight”

Mud Hustler

He makes a “Big Ass Waffle” (yep, that’s what he calls it!) and everyone is loving it! If you don’t have a waffle iron, you can make yourself some delicious pancakes with this recipe! He doesn’t have his own website or a cookbook, but the dude needs one! Super clever in the kitchen.

I asked him if I could share his recipe and call my post, Big Ass Waffle, and he said “Sure!”!

These two items are a must! I bought the Kodiak Cakes at Target and I ordered the Quest Protein Powder on Amazon (I think you can also buy that at GNC?). There are several other Quest flavors that I have seen Mud Hustler use in different pancake/waffle recipes and even some donut and cake recipes! This is the suggested flavor for the Big Ass Waffle.

Big Ass Waffle
Serves 1
Write a review
  1. 1 Scoop Quest Vanilla Milkshake Protein Powder
  2. 1/4 C Kodiak Cakes Buttermilk Flapjack and Waffle Mix
  3. 1 Egg White (or 3 T. Liquid Egg Whites)
  4. 1 tsp Cinnamon
  5. 2/3 C Cold Water
  1. Mix all ingredients.
  2. Make one Big Ass Waffle in your waffle iron.
  3. No Waffle Iron? No Problem. This makes 6-8 pancakes.
  1. One Serving = 3 SmartPoints
  2. If you have a smaller Waffle Iron, you can reduce the amount of water in the recipe to 1/2 C so your waffle doesn't spill all over. I'm speaking from experience here.

I love how many different toppings and combinations there are for Waffles and Pancakes. Fruit, Nut Butters, Honey, Syrup, Jams and Jellies, Whipped Toppings, Ice Cream, Nuts, Eggs, Bacon……Now I’m really hungry.

On Instagram? Go follow Mud for some motivation and inspiration!

Here are a few of the Waffle and Pancake plates that I’ve made over the last several days.

I topped this Waffle with fresh Strawberries, Banana Slices and 2 tsp of Honey.

I added 1 T. of Unsweetened Cocoa Powder and 1/2 C of frozen (rinsed) Wild Blueberries to the Big Ass Waffle recipe for a nice big stack of Pancakes. I topped this stack with Banana slices and 1/2 T. of Pure Maple Syrup.

  1. Good morning from your neighbor to the west (LeesMo). I was going to leave you a note here saying I’m not loving my first Big Ass Waffle experience, but I see I made the recipe wrong! I used Quest chocolate protein powder (the only flavor I had), but I added 1/2 cup of the Kodiak mix — not 1/4. No WONDER it was so cakey and required me to chug water, coffee AND Coke Zero to wash it down! So I guess I’ll give it another go. If all else fails, read the frickin’ directions, right?!? Ha!

    I’ve only made these with the Protein Powder listed, so I’m not sure. I wish I could help. Let me know how it works out though if you decide to try it!

  3. Can you use protein shake instead of protein powder and water?

  4. March 15, 2017 at 9:06 pm

    Yes, one waffle or 6-8 pancakes.

  5. is this recipe for one waffle?

  6. I’ve made this multiple times and have never had a problem with it. If it’s too runny try adding less water. I add a bit more cinnamon as we love it.

    Oh dang Bonnie. I’m not sure why it would be runny? After you cooked the batter it was still runny? I see that you have tried to make this more than one time. Has it turned out correct either of the times? Let me know. I want you to be able to enjoy this yummy waffle!

    1 Scoop Quest Protein Powder
    1/4 C Kodiak Mix
    1/2-2/3 C Cold Water
    1 Egg White
    1 tsp Cinnamon

    Let me know!

  8. Hi there maybe could someone tell me what I’m doing wrong.
    Made my waffle followed the directions to the letter and it came out runny!
    Threw it out and started again adding only 1/2 of water. But wasn’t the same texture as last week. What am I doing wrong?

    Hmmmm. I’m not sure. I’ve never made that recipe without the protein powder, so I would imagine that would make a difference in the texture. If you omit the protein powder, then I would follow the directions on the Kodiak box. They should still taste great that way too!

  10. My waffle came out gummy and not crisp and fluffy…any ideas what I did wrong. I omitted the protein powder.

    I’m glad you found a mix that was yummy! Do you have a GNC store by you? I think they also sell Quest Protein Powder.

    Have a great day!

  12. I looked at two grocery stores, Walmart and finally found a protein mix you could cook and bake with its called Peaceful Planet Rice protein. 10 mg sodium, 0 fat, 27 potassium, 16g protein. I couldn’t find Quest anywhere. Oh this had no flavor.
    I noticed after mixing everything together it appeared really thin so I added another 1/8 C. Quite yummy!

    That’s right! 6 SmartPoints for the whole thing! I’m hooked!

  14. February 19, 2017 at 1:38 pm

    Yes. That recipe is for one HUGE waffle. Isn’t that awesome!

  15. I’m still baffled. His whole recipe is for 1 serving?

  16. Ok, the picture above of the blueberry pancakes with the bananas on top, ALL of that stack is only 6 points?

  17. February 15, 2017 at 4:40 pm

    I am having fun playing around with toppings, that’s for sure!

    The Quest Protein Powder is 150 mg of sodium per serving.
    The Kodiak Cakes is 380 mg of sodium per serving.

    I’m glad you asked that. I hadn’t thought to look at the sodium. I’ve been eating very few processed/packaged foods and sodium is something that I like to keep my eye on. I swell up super easy! I really need to limit these to once or twice a week anyhow, but I was ready to switch things up with my breakfast and I was happy to find something low in points that was easy to make and tasted good.

    Thanks for having me look at that!

    Have a great day!

    Right??? So yummy!

  19. I love your creativity everyone of these so good I could eat for dinner. One question do the mixes have a lot of sodium in them?

  20. After all this talk–I want a waffle–lol.
