These gluten free Protein Packed Oatmeal Waffles are packed with protein and good for you oats but still taste amazing.
I am currently obsessed with my waffle maker. It is so ridiculously fun to use and versatile—I can’t help but want to use it for much more than just traditional breakfast waffles. If you haven’t tried my Waffle Iron Banana Bread or my Waffle Iron Grilled Apples, you really should! Somehow, everything just tastes better in waffle form.
Today, however, we are talking about a hearty and healthy, protein-packed breakfast waffle. I call it a breakfast waffle, but around here we’ve been known to enjoy these waffles for dinner too. Breakfast time can be a little chaotic around these parts, so sometimes we enjoy our breakfast favorites at dinnertime and the kids love it!
My favorite thing about these tasty waffles is how easy they are to prepare. Just a few ingredients go into the blender, then, with the click of a button, your batter is smooth and ready to go in just a few seconds. You can pour the batter into the waffle maker directly from the blender, making for fewer dishes and an easy cleanup. I’m all about keeping things simple and efficient.
Give the waffle maker just a few minutes to do its magic and you will have a piping hot, crispy, chewy, healthy breakfast to enjoy. From there you can top with your favorite waffle toppings. We love using berries or a low-calorie whipped cream, or, if you prefer a savory waffle, you can add cheese and scallions. Savory or sweet, there’s no better way to start your day than with waffles!
