Another week, another waffle (sorry not sorry). I just can't help myself, you guys! So believe it or not, this week I didn't spend multiple days dreaming about waffles. I actually didn't think about them until Tuesday night when I was like oh crap tomorrow's Wednesday! I thought about remaking one of my favorites, but first I started going through was I had in the fridge. Nothing stood out until I thought about cottage cheese. It's kind of like a middle ground between milk and cheese, and I've used both in waffles before. Toss in some fruit to offset the saltiness, and we have ourselves a waffle!
After I made these my mom actually told me that she used to have cottage cheese pancakes as a kid. I didn't even know that was a thing, but after making these waffles I can definitely see why!
Here's What You'll Need:
-1/2 cup quinoa flour
-One 5.3 oz container of cottage cheese
-Pinch of sea salt
-1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
-1/2 tsp vanilla
-1/2 cup blueberries
Makes 2 waffles
1) Mix all of the ingredients except the blueberries together in a bowl.
2) Add in the blueberries and continue to mix.
3) Pour half of the batter into the waffle maker and cook according to waffle maker instructions.
4) Repeat with the second half of the batter.
5) Top with desired toppings, and enjoy!
Just a fair warning, this mixture is less thick that typical waffle recipes, at least ones that I've made. So when you're pouring it into the waffle maker, don't worry! It's just a totally different, lighter consistency because of the cottage cheese, but trust me that it will turn out delicious!
I topped mine with a few additional blueberries and some of my favorite granola. There wasn't even a need for syrup or honey between the flavors of the waffle itself and the toppings!
