These high-protein oat waffles are made from cottage cheese, oatmeal, and eggs. So good that you’ll never do it any other way!
High protein oat wafers
I’m obsessed with those healthy oat cakes that I ate practically every morning! To increase the protein, I fill mine with nut butters plus banana and strawberries, but you can top them with anything you want! You can’t try the cottage cheese at all, they are so good and good for you too! If you want a plain flour and yogurt waffle recipe, check out my yogurt waffle recipe.

Three secret high-protein weapons, oats, cottage cheese and egg whites make up these crispy, light and fluffy waffle holders – and the blender is the vehicle for success. The blender does all the work here. It’s used to puree the cottage cheese along with the rest of the ingredients for a hassle-free process that flashes quickly.
Cottage cheese, which is made by cultivating milk, replaces buttermilk or milk normally used in waffle making, and offers even more protein. Full fat cottage is used for this recipe as it doesn’t have any of the added melted butter or oil that you normally find in waffle recipes. For the lightest, fluffiest waffles, egg whites are beaten into soft tips and folded into the batter. If you’d rather skip this step, they’re not that fluffy, but they still work just fine!
I got a little Dash Waffle Maker (Affil Link) for Christmas, they only cost $ 10! They are so cute and come in as many colors and patterns as I made these waffles. Although I have a bigger one, I still use this one more. If your waffle iron is bigger, adjust the batter as needed.
- Peanut butter or nut butter (I melt it in the microwave for 30 seconds so it drizzles lightly)
- Bananas, berries or seasonal fruits
- Pure maple syrup
- Whipped cream
Can you try the cottage cheese?
No not at all!
How to make oatmeal
Put the oats in the blender and process until they resemble fine flour.
- Gluten free – If you want a gluten-free waffle, make sure the oats you buy are labeled as such. Some producers process and store their oats in the same places as wheat and other grains.
- Reduced cottage cheese – Since this doesn’t contain any oil or butter, I went for full-fat cottage cheese. If you’re using less fat, you might want to add some oil.
Food preparation: The dough will keep in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days if you want to prepare it. You can also prepare and store the waffles in the refrigerator and then put them in the toaster.
