These Ube Mochi Waffles are sweet and chewy inside, and perfectly crispy on the outside! Plus, each waffle has 6 grams of protein!
Three things I love: Ube, Mochi, and Waffles.
I just combined all three and OMG it is so magical. Introducing…
✨Ube Mochi Waffles✨
If you’ve never had mochi, you MUST! It’s chewy and smooth and when you bake with it, it’s slightly crispy on the outside. And don’t worry, it’s not difficult to make!
This is the brand of flour I used, but you can use any glutinous rice flour you like! It’s made with short grain glutinous rice that is steamed and then dehydrated and milled into flour. When we add liquid and cook with it, it creates a paste-like texture, similar to traditional mochi made with fresh glutinous rice.
This is what creates the deliciously chewy mochi texture! The mochi layer is thinner in this waffle recipe than it is in mochi cakes or bars.
Add some protein
My Ube Soft Serve Sculpt + Debloat Protein originally inspired this recipe! Was I able to create the ultimate Ube Mochi Waffle using an ube-flavored protein powder?!
Yes. And it’s even better than I imagined!
Each waffle has 6 grams of protein – stack these up with some fresh fruit for a yummy, filling breakfast!

- Combine all the ingredients into a large bowl. Whisk together until just combined. The batter should be thick, but still easy to pour. If needed, add more milk 1-2 tablespoons at a time.
- If your waffle iron has temperature control, heat it to ‘high.’ Coat the waffle iron with cooking spray and use about ⅔ cup of batter per waffle.
- Cook for about 3 minutes per waffle, or until cooked through.
- Top with syrup, bananas or non-dairy yogurt.
Make mochi waffles with matcha instead!
For matcha-flavored mochi waffles, just swap Matcha Shake Sculpt + Debloat instead of Ube Soft Serve, and then replace the ube extract with about 1 tsp matcha powder (optional, but gives a lovely green color!).
