    anotherjenny's Note:

    My husband loves to make these waffles on weekends. He usually makes a double batch so that we can freeze the extras and enjoy a healthier version of Eggos on busy weekday mornings. These waffles are low in fat and made from half whole wheat flour, but they taste delicious! My picky kids love them! We got this recipe years ago from Eating Well magazine.

      Here in PA chicken and waffles is a HUGE dinner option...they have them for fund raisers, church dinners, and restaurant specials. I had leftover turkey, and wanted to make a healthier version for my family. I used these waffles as the base, changing only 2 things...omiting the vanilla since I wanted them for a savory waffle, and using 2 eggs since I hate wasting anything. The 2 beaten egg whites were still enough to make the batter fluffy and light. It made 5 waffles in my huge Belgian waffle maker, so I divided that into 10 servings. I sprayed the cooker with butter flavored Pam instead of coating with canola oil. I had no problem with it sticking. It was the perfect texture of crunchy outside and cakey inside. My 3 year old HAD to have it with syrup instead of turkey and gravy. He loved it. This will be my go-to waffle for breakfast, lunch, dinner, even as dessert with a little light vanilla ice cream on top! Thanks for posting such a delicious, healthy alternative to fattening waffles!

      The kids and I loved making them and they are REALLY yummy and filling! I think next time I'll try applesauce instead of oil and perhaps see what they're like without doing the egg white fluffing. Any way you look at it, though, these really are great!

      Incredibly light and fluffy! My DH made these and added 2 tsp cinnamon to the dry ingredients ("because cinnamon belongs in everything"). He thinks the beating of the egg whites is the key to the fluffiness of this recipe. Thanks for posting!
