Powell likes to top this with fresh berries, and if he's feeling extra indulgent, some agave syrup. He serves it with a nice cold glass of vanilla almond milk (unsweetened) and hot coffee!


  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/3 cup oatmeal
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Cooking Directions

    Put oatmeal and baking powder in food processor or blender and process until powdered.

    In a food processor blend cottage cheese, eggs, water, vanilla, and olive oil until smooth.

    Mix the dry and the wet ingredients to form a batter.

    As the mixture stands it will thicken and it may be necessary to add more water, (a tablespoon at a time), to a get smooth, not lumpy, consistency.

    Cook in a waffle iron according to the iron's specifications. Powell's waffles take about 4 minutes each.
