High Protein Waffles

High Protein - and Waffles???  Oh yeah baby!  I do have to say, you can almost feel virtuous eating this breakfast classic.  Just read the ingredients - and think - "what could be bad about oats and cottage cheese?"  Yes, I said cottage cheese...

3 cups old fashioned rolled oats (if  you buy these bulk  you can even feel like Ma Ingalls!)
1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose four
1/4 cup (heaping 1/4 cup) granulated sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1 teaspoon salt
4 large eggs (lightly beaten)
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup cottage cheese
2 cups milk

combine the oats, flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, cloves, and salt in a large mixing bowl.  Stir to combine dry ingredients.  Add the lightly beaten eggs, oil, cottage cheese and milk one at a time until the mixture is combined and smooth.

After you are done making the waffle mix, plug in your waffle iron and let your batter rest (for about 5 minutes). Bake according to your waffle iron directions.

Fresh fruit on these (and a storm of powdered sugar) will make you want to dance and sing.  High protein, fresh fruit?  Your grandmother would be so proud!
