Combine the oats, flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Stir to combine. Stir in the eggs, oil, cottage cheese and milk, one at a time until mixture is smooth. Let batter rest 5 minutes before using. Preheat the Cuisinart® Waffle Maker to desired setting (a tone will sound when preheated). Pour 2 cups of batter onto the center of the lower grid of the preheated waffle maker; spread batter evenly using a heat-proof spatula. Close lid of waffle maker. When tone sounds, waffles are ready. Open lid and carefully remove baked waffles. Repeat with remaining batter. For best results, serve immediately.
