Comments on this Recipe

Soy & canola oil are genetically modified. Why not use ingredients that are healthier substitutes?

These were so good! I used almond milk, whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose, and applesauce instead of oil! YUM, YUM, YUM!!!

Yum! Looks delish...I've also got similar ideas on my blog :)

Not all canola oil is GMO. You can find GMO free and organic canola at Whole Foods. These look amazing :)

Could almond milk be substituted?

Healthy! Waffles!!!

I say skip the canola oil all together. Horrible stuff. A lot of people can't tolerate it, much like msg. I don't know why everyone insists on adding it to their recipes. It's simply the latest 'fad' and I wish it would make an exit.

Sorry Beth but canola oil is an industrial oil made "edible" through a chemical process. There is no rapeseed which produces oil naturally that humans should consume. If you use canola you are taking in trans fats, whether or not the marketing says it's GMO free or organic.. Tree bark and dirt are also organic, but quite simply put they have no nutritional value and will cause problems the more you take in.

Regardless, this recipe is getting saved because it's not like it can't be altered. Coconut oil is your healthiest bet for any dough or batter based recipes though (must be melted and mixed with warm ingredients or it will re-solidify.)

Super delish! I used vanilla rice milk bc I can't have soy. I used canola oil bc I like to live dangerously. Also I don't tolerate coconut well. BTW tree bark and dirt contain trace elements and minerals that are beneficial... ;)

can I use cow milk instead? :)

A lot of scare-mongering, fact-less woo in the comments. Just ignore them. It's a great-looking recipe and I can't wait to try it! Thanks!
