Guilt-free Waffles

 These light and fluffy waffles are made with eggs and ricotta cheese. Eggs are an excellent source of protein and it is a wise choice to have 2 per day. Ricotta is a soft cheese, usually made from cow’s milk. Like most cheeses, ricotta cheese is a good source of protein and this serving of ricotta provides almost 15 percent of the daily protein required by a 150-lb. woman. Ricotta cheese is also an good source of calcium.

2 large eggs
¼ c. Ricotta cheese
¼ tsp cinnamon

½ tsp. baking powder
1-2 packages Stevia

    Looking forward to trying this recipe after my next shopping day!  It says 2 waffles are good, but I was wondering if the recipe makes 2 waffles because I’ll be cooking for three of us.  Thanks!
