"Finding a homemade waffle recipe that's low in calories is difficult," relates Jessica Beare Edmunds of Kingsland, Georgia. "So I modified a recipe I had, substituting fat-free plain yogurt for the oil or margarine. For a little variety, I sometimes use a flavored yogurt instead of plain."

"I loved this recipe. It called for all simple ingredients that I already had around the house and was super easy to make. The waffles had a sweet taste, and you can't beat the calories."

"I've made this recipe several times - it's so healthy and light. Sometimes I use light vanilla yogurt instead of plain - gives it a wonderful flavour!"

"Very light and tasty. These freeze really well and are not mushy when you pop them in the toaster oven. I always make extras now and throw the rest in the freezer."
