I used egg beaters and it was fine. Maybe could decrease sugar in them if desired. I have similar recipes that say 1 tab honey or 2 tabs sugar. These turned out very well and I would make again. I think the calorie count is per waffle however not for a serving of 2 waffles.
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.

LOVE this recipe. It's the only one I'll make from now on. It's so healthy and delicious that when I'm in the mood for waffles, I have no problem letting myself over-indulge.
These were so yummy. My waffle iron caught fire half way through so I have to finish these as pancakes and it worked great! I think the batter could be made the night before and used in the morning as well. This is my new go to recipe!
I followed the recipe as is and they came out great! They look liquidy but don't worry, they'll turn out fine. I can't believe how fewer calories are in this recipe compared to other high-fat sugary waffles. This will be my new go-to recipe.
The first Wholemeal waffles I made were on 100daysofrealfood.com, the website being a favorite of mine, I assumed they would be awesome. They were not. Far too dense and flavorless.
I found these, and while they are a lot of ingredients, they took very little hands-on time. I topped mine with a slight drizzle of raw honey and blueberries. Yum! And sooo much more natural and healthful than traditional store-bought waffles.
Next time some changes I intend to try include:
Subbing light coconut milk for buttermilk
Reducing brown sugar, and not replacing it with another artificial sweetener (read up on the risks of "Splenda," AKA sucrose!)
Using white Wholemeal flour in place of white flour (in case you have never used it, you should. It yields to lighter taste of white flour, but still has the fiber of its healthier counterpart)
Thank you so much for this recipe!
