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.

Fueling and Mix-In Guide:
  • 2 Tbsp water + Fueling = 1 waffle/pancake 
    • Brownie 
    • Biscuits
    • Chocolate Chip Cookie 
    • Cream Cheese Swirl Cake 
  • 3 Tbsp water + Fueling = 1 waffle/pancake
    • Sweet Potatoes
  • 3 Tbsp water + Fueling = 2 waffle/pancake
    • Pancake
    • Shakes
    • Smoothies
  • 4 Tbsp water + Fueling = 2 waffles/pancakes
    • Smashed Potatoes
    • Oatmeal
  • Prepare/cook as directed on packet with slightly less water = 1 waffle/pancake
    • Mac and Cheese (make sure it's thicker than normal)

What other Fuelings have you made in the Dash? Let us know how you prepared it! 


  1. I'd like to know how you mix for bundt cakes please

    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!

  2. OMG I love the idea specially for the shakes since I'm not a fan of them.
    Thank you so much for the info

  3. Need help with the Optavia oatmeal fuelings. Any suggestions?

    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.

    2. Add a tsp of pumpkin pie spice.

  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!

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

  6. I got a baby Yoda waffle maker! Was just for my pancakes! Just tried some of the other ideas! I love it. Great for the on the go life-style
