Cottage Cheese Waffles
April 19, 2020

Start your day with these freezer-friendly waffles made right in a blender!

Best of all, these waffles are packed with whole food protein and fibre-filled carbs. The eggs and cottage cheese provide all of the protein without the addition of protein powder

 I opted for dury curd cottage cheese but you can use regular cottage cheese. The main difference is that the dry curd is higher protein, lower in carb (specifically the natural dairy sugar, lactose), and low in sodium. Both work great! If you opt for the dry curd, then add a dash of salt to the recipe and the almond milk  (or any milk!) to loosen up the batter. The regular cottage cheese is "liquid-y" and salty enough that you won't need to add extra liquid and salt.

You can easily double, triple or quadruple the recipe! You can freeze them and toast them up if you need a quick breakfast, tasty snack, or post-workout pick-me-up. These waffles are also practically effortless with the use of a blender. From there, simply pour the batter into the waffle maker!

Let’s make some waffles! And don’t forget to tag me on Instagram (@vitalitynutrition_ ) if you make 'em. I would love to see your creations.
