    Yes, it should read whole wheat flour. Thanks. I am going to edit that.

    These are the best waffles I have ever tasted. I didn't have wheat germ on hand so I subbed soy flour for that ingredient and cinnamon for the vanilla. A little extra protein doesn't hurt a vegetarian any! Anyway, they were delicious and I've made a load up in the freezer; they re-toast beautifully. - 1/5/09

    These were very good & filling with all of the "good" stuff in them. I topped mine with homemade strawberry sauce. I have extras for another day or to freeze.
    Side note...due to the applesauce (I think) it did take a couple of extra minutes to cook after the waffle light went off. - 9/23/10

    if I don't have flax seed, what can I substitute with it? - 2/18/10

    Reply from JDLANDER (2/18/10)
    You can substitute oat bran, wheat bran, wheat germ, or if you don't have any of that just substitute it with more whole wheat flour. I have mixed and matched as needed and they still have turned out great.

    I have made these before with a very similar recipe, that includes less applesauce and 1/4 cup of canola oil. I tried this one without the oil and they were great too and less fat. MMMM - 2/27/11

    I LOVED these, but my boyfriend wasn't too happy with them for breakfast. He suggested making them for dinner with fried chicken. I think I could do that for him and I could do without the fried skin and save the extra meat for a lunch salad the following day. Thanks for the recipe. - 6/21/10

  • I've made this recipe twice now. The second time turned out great (first time were too dense). I highly recommend adding a bit more milk and whipping the egg whites first and then fold them in at the end. Makes for much lighter waffles. Also added a lot of cinnamon. - 2/16/10

  • Horray! I am so tired of whole grain, boxed frozen waffles that look good and taste "yucky". You don't specify sweetened or unsweetened applesauce; I have found unsweetened to be great. LeRoux Creek Applesauce, made in Colorado is especially great - and no I'm not related to the company. :-) - 7/22/09

    Reply from JDLANDER (9/2/09)
    I usually do use unsweetened (unless I'm in a pinch). Glad you liked them and I will have to try that brand of applesauce (I don't know if it is in the store here.)

  • These were fantastic. I did not have any wheat germ so I subbed ground almonds. I also added some cracked wheat.
    My hubby loved them. They were very filling too. - 7/20/09
