Protein Packed Oatmeal Waffles

Updated: Jun 21

Waffles are a favorite in our house. Anything you can put syrup on always goes well here! If you make a big batch, and you're lucky enough to have leftovers (which never happens in our house!), you can toast them for a quick breakfast or keep them in the freezer for another day. Over the years, I have found, over the years that I can put just about anything in waffles or pancakes and my kids still devour them.

I have fine-tuned this recipe to include whole grains and a ton of protein. Oats, whole wheat flour, eggs, buttermilk and Greek yogurt make these hearty waffles super satisfying. Enjoy them with fresh fruit, and/or my fieldberry sauce, or with savory toppings like cheese and ham.

They make a great brunch, but they are also a perfect quick weeknight dinner. Who doesn't love breakfast for dinner? If you have a waffle maker, you'll want to try these Power Packed Oatmeal Waffles! And if you do not have a waffle maker, that is okay, because you can use this same recipe to make pancakes! Give it a try today. I'm sure your kids will love them too.
