Most waffle recipes call for melted butter, added sugar, and leavening ingredients like baking powder and baking soda. This revamped waffle recipe focuses on high protein ingredients like eggs, low-fat cottage cheese, and ground flaxseeds that get blended up with rolled oats and a splash of vanilla extract to create a seriously good and good-for-you waffle.
More research is showing that spreading our intake of protein throughout the day can help enhance muscle growth and synthesis. Many people eat too little protein for breakfast, a fair amount of protein for lunch, and too much protein for dinner.
By more evenly distributing our protein intake to approximately 30 grams of protein each at breakfast, lunch, and dinner, we may be able to preserve lean body mass and thus reduce the excess fat in our bodies which may lead to chronic disease down the line.
- 4 large eggs
- 2 cups cottage cheese (low-fat)
- 2 tablespoons flaxseed (ground)
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla (or almond extract)
- Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until evenly mixed and smooth.
- Heat a waffle iron.
- Lightly coat with oil or spray with non-stick spray. Place a heaping 1/2 cup full of batter onto the waffle iron and cook 4-5 minutes until golden brown and crisp.
- Repeat with remaining batter. You should have 4 waffles at the end.
Ingredient Variations and Substitutions
Stir a cup of blueberries into the waffle batter for a juicy antioxidant and fiber boost.
Or, slice a banana and stir it to the batter for a creamy, potassium-rich addition.
Waffles deserve more than just maple syrup as a topping. Try adding a dollop of yogurt, extra chopped fresh fruit, sliced or chopped toasted nuts or nut butter, or even a sprinkle of raw cacao nibs. Decorating your breakfast plate not only makes it more fun to eat, but can also add nutritional benefits, too, especially if using the aforementioned healthy toppings.
Cooking and Serving Tips
Want to ensure you eat a healthy breakfast all week long? Make a batch of waffles on the weekend and cook them all. Let cool and store the leftovers in an airtight container. In the morning, simply pop a waffle into the toaster and top with your favorite toppings. Store-bought freezer waffles are "so old news" now.
