I created this recipe as part of a paid partnership with Fiber One™ Original Cereal but all content and ideas are my own.
Why just “take” you fiber when you can flaunt it? It’s Fiber Month so I partnered with Fiber OneTM Original cereal to create some high fiber recipes to get the new year off to a good start. Maintaining a high fiber diet is a practical solution to maintaining digestive health. Choosing a high fiber cereal is a simple way to meet your daily fiber goals.
In addition to enjoying a bowl of cereal with milk, try these Fiber OneTM Cereal Waffles. Since I love breakfast and enjoy a good sandwich, I dreamt up these waffles to use in place of bread to make a slider.
Keeping it Moving
Growing older presents a couple of challenges: Energy balance, and, ahem, “regularity”. Fiber helps fill you up, so you can eat just enough and be satisfied. It’s also a key factor in maintaining a healthy gut and healthy bowel movements. If you’re someone who’s not a fan of fiber supplements, or have had trouble being compliant with them, these homemade waffles are a delicious solution to your fiber needs.
- Use these Fiber OneTM Waffles as a delicious high fiber substitute for your favorite bread. Each serving provides 19 grams of fiber. Add peanut butter and it brings it up to 21 grams – that’s 75% of the Daily Value (DV) for fiber!
- They’re simple to make. Continuing my “DASH Diet for Two” theme, this recipe makes enough for 2 small waffle sandwiches. You can make a double batch of the waffles and freeze them in zippered freezer bags. They’ll stay fresh for 3 months, and you’ll have high fiber waffles to create sandwiches anytime you’d like. I recommend lightly toasting them to defrost from the freezer.
- The sandwich-filler options are endless really, but I love a good ole PBJ when I’m short on time. I also tried a hot chicken Fiber OneTM Waffle sandwich and it was delicious (I used sliced rotisserie chicken, hot sauce, lettuce and mayo – yum).
In addition to sandwiches, you can enjoy these Fiber One™ Cereal Waffles for breakfast with fruit or yogurt, or just have one as a high fiber snack. Drop me a comment to let me know how you like them, or if you have other ways to use Fiber One™ Original. Enjoy!

Fiber One™ Cereal Waffle PBJ Sliders
- 2/3 cup Fiber One™ Original Cereal
- 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 large egg
- 1/3 cup low fat milk
- 2 tbsp Peanut Butter
- 2 tsp Mixed berry Jam
- Using a food processor, grind Fiber One™ cereal. Pulse your food processor for 10-second intervals until cereal is a course powder.
- Transfer the ground cereal into a bowl. Add the flour and baking powder. Stir until dry ingredients are well blended.
- Add the egg and milk. Stir until smooth.
- Heat waffle iron (I used a 4-waffle iron to make 4 small 3-inch waffles. Or you can make 2 regular waffles). When it’s hot, spoon a dollop of batter equally onto each waffle grid. Press and cook according to your iron’s directions.
- Remove waffles from iron and allow to cool.
- Spread the peanut butter onto two small waffles and spread the jam on the other two halves.
- Place waffles together to create two small sandwiches.
- Serve with fruit and a glass of milk.
