I have made this puff with vanilla whey powder, and with chocolate whey powder so far. It is delicious and quick… and so easy, which is a nice bonus.
And once you have the basics down, you can start to get very creative with it. You can change the spices in the basic recipe… for instance… use cloves and nutmeg and put stewed apples or applesauce on top. Or make a chocolate puff with almond butter smeared over it… or how about a vanilla puff topped with with chocolate chips and a spoonful of peanut butter? I have also had one with just a drizzle of sugar free syrup… and honey would be lovely, too. You get it…

Of course the N.I. for your puff will depend on the protein powder you used, and your choice of toppings.
UPDATE. I have recalculated this recipe to give you the nutritional information for the Weight Watchers SMART POINTS program as follows:

Again, I stipulate that you should do your own calculation for the protein powder you use and the toppings you choose to add after.
Rising nicely, and ready to flip. If the battter is still runny, it will not flip easily. Leave it to cook a bit longer.
The second side only takes a couple of minutes and you don’t need to cover the pan.

A bit of Greek yogurt and some blueberries…
What do you think? Easy, right?
