Macro Friendly Buttermilk Waffles

I love a good waffle so with this recipe, I tried to add in a few extra ingredients to increase the protein without drying them out completely or them turning too soggy or crispy. This recipe makes five Belgium Waffles that are pretty large, so feel free to only eat half a waffle.
