These fluffy, protein-packed waffles are healthy, delicious, and perfect for meal prepping. If you don’t have a waffle iron, make them into pancakes instead!
1 cup old fashioned oats
1 cup cottage cheese
3 egg whites
1 teaspoon honey
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 splash pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 pinch ground cinnamon
1 pinch ground nutmeg
Blend oats until they’re ground into a powder-like consistency. Remove from blender and set aside.
Blend cottage cheese, eggs, egg whites, honey, baking soda, baking powder, vanilla extract, salt, ground cinnamon, and ground nutmeg until creamy. Add the oats back in and blend for an additional 10-15 seconds.
Ladle batter into preheated waffle iron and cook the waffles until golden and crisp, anywhere from 4- 5 minutes depending on the iron. Repeat until entire batch of batter is used.
Top with real maple syrup, berries, and/or bananas, and enjoy!
If you don’t have a waffle iron, you can also turn these into pancakes and cook them on a griddle instead.
You can add in a scoop of vanilla whey protein powder and substitute 2% greek yogurt for cottage cheese for extra protein.
