Dash Mini Waffle Maker/Griddle + OPTAVIA Fuelings Guide

General directions to prepare Fuelings in the Dash Mini Waffle Maker or Dash Mini Griddle:
  • Mix Fueling and mix-ins well
  • Plug in Dash Mini Waffle Maker (to make a waffle) or Dash Mini Griddle (to make a "pancake") and wait for light to go off
  • Spray both sides of Dash with nonstick spray BEFORE MAKING EACH WAFFLE/PANCAKE
  • When the Dash stops steaming, or the steam significantly slows down, open to check for done-ness
  • If you're pre-making Fuelings, you can store them in the freezer and then reheat in toaster oven or microwave
  • Note: Some people use egg whites instead of water. I do not do that because I don't like to alter the Fuelings and have to track what I add to deduct from my daily Lean and Green
  • I generally try to add just enough water to make the Fueling like a batter or thin dough. Too watery, and it will overrun.

    1. Hi! I mix just as directed on the packet! You can add a tiny bit (like 1/8 tsp of baking powder) if you wish too! Or an egg white!

    1. I usually make them as directed but allow it to sit for a little longer before eating.

      For the DASH, as it says above, 4T of water is perfect. If you find it's sticking or breaking apart, use a little less water. Does that help? You can message me if you need additional info - my contact info is on the sidebar if you view in desktop mode.

  4. I find that the pancakes look ok(fluffy) when first lift the lid, but deflate. Why?

    1. You can add a pinch of baking powder and/or an egg white if you want it fluffier!
