"Made these again today for breakfast - made a full batch this time. Was able to omit all the butter in the ingredient list and cut down the amt of eggs from 7 to 5 and it still tasted great. I used 1/2 cup of oat flour and 1/2 cup of cornmeal instead of 1 full cup of cornmeal to give it another grain since each grain has different properties/nutritional values. I have some (15) ready to go in the freezer now for easy breakfasts over the next 2 weeks. Thanks again for the great recipe!"

"halved the recipe and it was perfect for the three of us to have seconds and some for the freezer for a couple busy mornings. Thanks for the great recipe. The only thing I changed was using all whole eggs and not some plus egg whites. I also added oat flour to the mix by cutting back on the white flour."

"This was a hit from my 15 year-old to 5 year-old. I feel they got some nutrients while they just wanted a good-tasting waffle. It was a little time consuming at first, but next time I will prepare the dry ingredients first and have them set aside to try to make an early morning breakfast. Thanks!"
