Makeover Waffles

These waffles taste just as terrific as the original recipe—with only half the fat. In other words, dust off that waffle iron because these breakfast sensations are a wonderful way to start your day! —Carol Burger, Phillips, Wisconsin

    Light fluffy and perfect every time. I mix the dry ingredients together and put into baggies, assembly line style, so I always have it on hand to whip up on the weekends.

    I also added the whole egg at once and subbed 1/2 cup of Dannon Light and Fit Vanilla Yogurt for the 1/4 cup oil and 1/4 cup applesauce. They turned out wonderful.

    Fantastic waffle recipe! They turned light and fluffy. The taste was also very good. This is my new favorite regular waffle recipe.

    Very good. I added the whole egg when mixing the wet ingredients (didn't bother to beat the white separately), and it turned out fine.
