Highly recommended! These don't have a strong flavor, but the texture is great and the lack of a strong flavor means they don't have to be buried in toppings to taste the toppings. In fact, they are excellent with REAL maple syrup, which, to me, has a lighter flavor than the corn stuff (Mrs. Butterworth, Aunt Jemima, Log Cabin, etc)--these carry that light flavor well. They also work well with berry sauces and they are excellent with fresh ground peanut butter (again, they carry the more subtle flavor very well).
Using the applesauce and sugar variations described below, I prepared these on a 7-inch Belgian waffle maker (slightly under-filled--I don't like the risk of mess it takes to make them perfect) and weighed all ingredients to calculate calories. Each 7-inch waffle was between 195 and 220 calories. Not too bad for a 7-inch carb disk My variations: Canola Oil:
From here on, I will replace the oil with applesauce. I have used olive oil to replace the canola and I have simply replaced the oil with applesauce (1/4 C to fully replace the oil). I didn't notice a difference. Sugar: I have used sugar and I have replaced the sugar with 1/2 TBS Splenda Brown Sugar Blend and 1/2 TBS Stevia. Again... I haven't noticed a difference either way. (Next time, I'm just going to avoid a sweetener because I don't even pick it up).
