Protein Waffles

Serves 2

1/2 cup cottage cheese
2 eggs
1/2 cup water
2 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/3 cup oatmeal, instant or regular
1 teaspoon baking powder


Put oatmeal and baking powder in food processor or blender and process until powdered.

In a food processor, blend cottage cheese, eggs, water, vanilla, and olive oil until smooth.

Mix the dry and wet ingredients to form a batter.

As the mixture stands it will thicken, and it may be necessary to add more water (a tablespoon at a time), to a get smooth, not lumpy, consistency.

Cook in a waffle iron according to the iron’s specifications. My waffles take about 4 minutes each.

You can also drizzle with honey or sugar free maple syrup. I top mine with 2 tbsp of coconut whipped cream, which adds an additional 60 cal, 5.2g fat, .8 carbs, and .8 protein

  1. I know you said every day…but…really? Even while I’m carb cycling? Wow! Can’t wait to try them tomorrow morning!

  2. Am definitely going to try this as my family loves eating waffles in the morning and I just hate that they are often just loaded with carbs and little else. Thanks!

  3. These look good! I love this because I am always looking for new recipes to break up the boredom of eating the same foods over and over.

  4. I LOVE the food blogs with healthy recipes in it! As a mom of two I am looking for healthy ways to make meals that our kids will love! I just started working out again trying to make sure I am healthy and around for our kids for a long time so I NEED healthy recipes that are delicious!:)

  5. I make these at home, but I substitute coconut oil for olive oil and fat free, high protein Greek yogurt for the cottage cheese. I also add 1/2 tsp all spice for some added flavor.
    Super yummy!
