These high protein oat waffles are made with cottage cheese, oat flour and eggs. So good you’ll never make them any other way!
I’m obsessed with these healthy oat waffles I’ve been eating practically every morning! To up the protein, I top mine with nut butter plus banana and strawberries but you can top them with anything you wish! You can’t taste the cottage cheese at all, they are so good and good for you too! If you want a waffle recipe using regular flour and yogurt, see my recipe for Yogurt Waffles. For more recipes with cottage cheese try my Savory Cottage Cheese Bowls, Cottage Cheese Egg Frittata and High Protein Bread recipe.
Three secret high protein weapons, oats, cottage cheese and egg whites are what make these crisp, light and fluffy waffles keepers—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 fuss-free process that is lightening quick.
Cottage cheese, which is made by culturing milk takes the place that buttermilk or milk usually used in waffle-making and offers higher protein to boot. For this recipe full-fat cottage is used since there isn’t any of the added melted butter or oil that you usually find in waffle recipes. For the lightest, fluffiest waffles, egg whites, whipped to soft peaks are folded into the batter. If you prefer to skip that step, they won’t be as fluffy but they will still work out fine!
I got a small Dash Waffle Maker (affil link) for Christmas, they are only $10! They are so cute and come in so many colors and patterns which is what I used to make these waffles. Although I do have a larger one, I find myself using this one more. If your waffle maker is bigger, adjust batter as needed.
No, not at all!
Place oats in the blender and process until it resembles fine flour.
Meal Prep: The batter will last in the refrigerator 3 to 4 days if you want to make it ahead. You can also make the waffles and refrigerate, then pop them in the toaster.

Heat a waffle iron on its medium setting.
Place cottage cheese, egg yolks, vanilla, and sugar, if using in the blender. Add 6 tablespoons water, oat flour, baking powder and salt and blend until mixture is smooth batter. Transfer to a medium bowl using a spatula to get all the batter out.
Beat the egg white to soft peaks then fold into the batter.
Spray pre-heated waffle iron with oil spray. Pour batter into iron (about 1/4 cup) and cook until golden brown and steam is no longer being released.
Note, you can omit the sugar or use your favorite sweetener.
