Waffles without oil or sugar and my husband likes them. Original recipe from which says it is from The Healthy Kitchen - Recipes for a Better Body, Life and Spirit by Andrew Weil, MD and Rosie Daley (Knopf).


  1. Separate eggs.
  2. Beat the whites until stiff.
  3. Mix egg yolks, orange juice and vanilla until frothy.
  4. Add milk and stir a couple of times.
  5. Mix dry ingredients together and add slowly to liquids mixing until there are no lumps.
  6. Fold the egg whites.
  7. Server with fresh fruit (raspberries, blueberries, bananas, strawberries, applesauce) and vanilla yogurt.
  8. If you must use syrup remember that the orange juice provides sweetener.
  9. Can be used to make pancakes too.

These turned out very tasty, although I modified mine some. I used only 2 egg whites and substituted with half a cup of ground flaxseed and hot water then added pureed pumpkin and a dash of olive oil! I also mixed up the 2 c. of flour with rolled oats, rye, and all purpose flour. So tasty and the orange juice added a really interesting flavor

These were somewhat bland and tended to stick to my waffle iron, even after I greased it well. Don't think we'll make these again.

Turned out pretty good, but thought they were a tad bit bland. Added 1/2 cup of ground flax to the flour (and decreased white flour by 1/2 cup) just to up the nutritional value a bit. They are very light and fluffy, which is great. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
