Whole wheat waffles recipe that are crazy fast to make in the blender and incredibly high in protein. Get the day started off right for an easy weekday breakfast or weekend brunch.
Waffles are where a happy life begins… too dramatic? Ok, lets dial it down then.
Waffles are better than pancakes. That’s right I said it. They have the perfect little vessels to hold syrup, are crunchy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside. Now that we realized we can make these in the blender… I think my first original sentence stands.
Waffles are where a happy life and fantastic morning begins. 😉
Whole Wheat Waffles and Why
We want to start the morning off right. We love that these whole wheat waffles are packed with whole grains and lots of protein from the cottage cheese and eggs.
Although whole wheat flour is pretty dense, these waffles are still light and fluffy.
Add some ground cinnamon and we are in business. I love the aroma and taste of cinnamon, and besides, baking with cinnamon is a must. We especially can’t resist now that fall is around the corner!
I think it’s a law or something. If it’s not, it definitely should be.
I serve the whole wheat waffles with some warm maple syrup, or you can make your own pancake syrup if you want to make these quickly but are out of the syrup! Been there and exact reason we found a way to make our own syrup once upon a time. It’s easier than you would think!
The waffles themselves contains no added sugar which means you can make these extremely healthy by adding some yogurt and some fresh fruit, peanut butter and grab n’ go!
Can you freeze homemade waffles?
Yesssss you can. We are all about meal-prepping here and these waffles fit the bill. Make an extra batch and you can freeze then in an airtight container. Be sure to allow them to fully cool before popping in the freezer. When you want them you can quickly reheat them by popping into the toaster OR microwave for 1 minute.
We personally prefer the toaster method ourselves, it crisps up the waffles nicely all over again and makes them feel like they were fresh from the iron.
How to Make Whole Wheat Waffles Batter in a Blender:
You’ll want to dump everything into the blender and blend! Really it is THAT simple.
Kitchen Tools You’ll Need (and love!):
- High Powered Blender – this is our favorite one we use! It is fantastic. A food processor can also work nicely with this recipe.
- Waffle Iron – truly one of my favorite kitchen appliances.. you can tell by our Candied Bacon Buttermilk Waffles or our Savory Ham and Cheese Waffles
What if I don’t own a blender?
No worries! You have a few options.
- You can use a food processor instead if thats what you’ve got, the results will be the same.
- Immersion Blender will work as well.
- Manually mix it together – now I will have to preface this with you will want to make sure it is completely mix together and the cottage cheese is broken down and smooth. Manually mixing it together will be an arm workout and will take time but it is possible!
Now I want to make these every Sunday until I die. How’s that for a raving review?
