I love breakfast! It is the most important meal of the day, after all. I am however, particular about what I eat. I absolutely have to have some kind of protein with my breakfast or, after about 30 minutes, I get hangry (hungry + angry = hangry…it’s a thing, go with it).
Because of my deep desire for protein, I started experimenting with high protein baked goods such as muffins and waffles. I still haven’t found a good muffin recipe but am about to share with you this high protein waffle recipe that is awesome!
Here are the players:
- ½ cup old fashioned oats
- ½ cup cottage cheese
- 2 eggs
- ½ tsp vanilla
- 2 Tbsp milk
- ½ tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- Dash of salt (optional)
Throw everything in a blender (I used my Magic Bullet) and blend until smooth.
This recipe yields 3 Belgian sized waffles. You will use about half a cup per waffle.
I topped mine with butter, peanut butter (because I have no shame and it is delicious), bananas, and real maple syrup.
This is a pretty flexible recipe, you could throw in some Greek yogurt, chia seeds, ground flax seeds, maybe even some protein powder. Just make sure the consistency is a thick but pourable liquid. You can also keep the batter in the fridge for 1-3 days in an airtight container. These waffles freeze wonderfully. Enjoy!
