Great whole grain flavor. I substituted all whole wheat flour and egg whites and omitted the brown sugar. They turned out perfect-light and fluffy! For the topping, I sauteed fresh strawberries with about 2 teaspoons agave nectar-yum!
Traditional waffles are a butter-laden, high-carb indulgence, but they make the transition to good fats and smart carbs beautifully, yielding crisp, nutty-tasting waffles with all the sweet pleasure of the original. The batter can also be used for pancakes.

Excellent waffles! These are very tasty. My 4 yr. old and my 2 yr. old both asked for seconds! My husband and I both liked them very much as well. Definitely a recipe for the recipe box.
Absolutely delicious! The oats and corn meal lend a great density to the waffles. Husband, toddler, and I thoroughly enjoyed them and plan to make them our Sunday breakfast waffle. (They also freeze and reheat very well).
I was looking for a waffle recipe that was similar in calories to the Eggo Nutri-Grain waffles and found this one. The initial investment was more than a box of waffles, but I'll get more waffles out of the ingredients in the long run. I didn't get 16 waffles out of this recipe. I used 2/3 cup per the recipe, but I still didn't get 16 waffles out of the recipe. I tried twice, too. I have a 4x8 waffle maker that makes 2 4" waffles. I put 1/3 cup of the batter in each half. My waffle maker took about 9 minutes to cook the waffles. I tasted one while I was making them. They're really good. I like the multi grain taste of them. I made the second batch with ground ginger instead of the cinnamon. My spice grinder broke and I had some ginger already ground. I haven't tasted those yet, but the ones with cinnamon are pretty good. I am hoping they will fill me up and I won't be starving by 10am. I'll just have to see tomorrow morning.

Wonderful recipe! Great waffles. I used the wheat germ, and used only egg whites in place of the entire egg. Also beat the egg whites to stiff peaks before adding them.
