Great texture on these waffles. Just the right crispness on the outside while being moist inside.

YUM! I hate making waffles from scratch because they never taste as good as a box- sad right - until i found these! they were just great and since low sugar, healthy alternative for a diabetic

I just made these this morning. I used coconut oil, and replaced a 1/2 cup of flour for almond meal (almond flour)... they were delicious!!!! Crisp, light, and coconut oil is healthier and tastes amazing. I did add a couple extra tablespoons of regular flour too. 5 stars!!

Finally: a quick, crispy waffle recipe!

I added vanilla and more flour; other than that, it was fantastic!

Just added a little cornmeal, whole wheat flour, and oats in place of some of the white flour... used the chopped pecans in the bottom of the waffle iron as suggested, and these were the best waffles I've ever had :o)

Most waffle recipes are either really difficult or not any good. This recipe is easy and it made great (read 'light') waffles! The only reason I came back to rate was so that others might benefit from the recipe as I did...

I only hard Smart Balance oil and I can still taste the oil. I suppose my mom used peanut oil. Otherwise, they reminded me of my youth. I added 1 T of powdered sugar to the egg white and added "orange flower" flavor and it was just like being in France. Delicieux.

Waffles turned out awesome!! I'm going around looking for that crispy outside - fluffy inside - and flavorable waffle recipe. This one is a keeper!!!

After 20 years, just lost the recipe book that came with our waffle maker. Thank Heaven that you have almost the identical recipe for these fabulous waffles. They're the only ones I make now. Thank you, thank you.
