Waffle Wednesday: Oatmeal Protein Waffles Three Ways

No, this is not a smoothie you are looking at.

I’m not a smoothie fan. Too cold. Too liquidy. No chew. And worst of all, most of the time it has no caffeine. What’s the point of a specialty beverage if it does not contain caffeine!?

Nonono, today we are blending up Oatmeal Protein Waffles. A big ole’ batch meant to serve four. Or give me four days worth of quick breakfasts before I stumble out the door.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups oatmeal (rolled or quick)
  • 1/2 cup unflavoured soy protein powder (you can use 1/2 cup cottage cheese or Greek yogurt here too – I’ve had much success with them!)
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • milk until desired consistency (it think I used over 1 cup?)

Directions:

Throw it all in a blender and blendbabyblend!

The great thing about a plain waffle recipe like this is that you can dress them up differently each time you have them! Dipped in a peanut butter/syrup sauce such as the above is my all-time favourite way.

If you want something that will stick to your ribs, fried eggs on top are the way to go.

Runny yolks are like a golden syrup…mmm…

Yogurt of course is a traditional topping, but cottage cheese or ricotta cheese is just as good! I like to mash it up with almond butter, syrup and cinnamon to complete the topping.

However, if you want to change up the flavour of the waffle, you should probably check out these recipes:

Carrot Cake Waffles

Dark Chocolate Coconut

Citrus Poppyseed Waffles

Cardamom Sour Cream Waffles

Whole Wheat Pumpkin Waffles

Cornbread Waffles

Sweet Potato Maple Waffles

Soooo have I convinced you to buy a waffle iron yet?
