Waffle Week Day 3: my normal eats all in one waffle. or not. fail.

14 Mar

Things I consume on an almost daily basis:
oatmeal
cottage cheese
protein powder
cinnamon
eggs
Also in the mix:
vanilla extract
So what would my favorite work-a-day foods taste like blended and cooked on a waffle iron?
I couldn’t tell you:

I am sure Janetha, writer of the lovely blog Meals and Moves from which this recipe came, could.
I was all ready to dig these Protein Waffles and I am blaming failure on the fact that when I made this I was but a fledgling waffle-woman. However!

Wise wise Janetha of the rock-hard abs said I could make it into pancakes instead.
So I did. With the remainder of the half-recipe of batter I’d made. Then I decided to get cocky and flip the first pancake. More fail.
That fail was totally my fault. So I did not take a picture.
Trying not to dwell on my shortcomings.
Finally I managed one pancake:

Pretty much equal parts oats, protein powder, cottage cheese and egg whites with flavorings added.

Perhaps too much of a good thing just overwhelmed my waffle maker.

Perhaps my waffle maker is acting up because it wants a name. It just wants to be loved too. I will have to dwell on this.

On to what we should all really care about: taste.
Seeing as I love all these ingredients, the fact that it tasted delectable makes sense.
Ah, logic.
If I continue to follow logic I wouldn’t name my iron. I’d buy a new waffle iron-I’m pretty sure the reason I’ve been having sticky issues is simply that it is really, really old.

Do tell me, o blog readers: have you named any household appliances?

    Oh man, that waffle flop photo is all too familiar! Happens to me every so often, i think it is because the recipe lacks much fat and you really have to spray the iron. Haha. http://mealsandmovesblog.com/2011/08/25/third-breakfast-is-a-charm/

      Haha! I just read your post from the link. Glad to see I’m not alone.
      I am definitely making these again cause they are so very good, but I’ll just go crazy with the nonstick spray first. Or maybe I’ll sneak an egg yolk in…
