You need to be careful because many brands of cottage cheese are high in sodium. I notice that the serving size in this recipe is only a half of a waffle and it contains 200mg of sodium. Who can eat just 1/2 of a waffle and feel, satisfied?

Thanks, Joanna! 5 SP is correct and I will change the post to include it. Sorry about that.
@Vivian - this cottage cheese is salt free so the sodium here is mostly due to the baking soda - which adds a lot of sodium. This is a very large waffle but I wouldn't expect you would eat only 182 calories and be satisfied for breakfast.

Thanks for your comments!!

I wonder if this would work as a pancake? I don't have a waffle maker.

Boy, I'm doing a V8 head-slap! I've been cooking for almost 60 years and never gave baking soda or baking powder any thought regarding sodium. Sure, I make it a point to get aluminum-free but salt content never occurred to me. I've always had low BP so it hasn't been a personal concern but I do want to cook healthier for my family and guests. I found Ener-G baking powder and soda on the web, both have 0 sodium and aluminum. I'll be making the switch and sharing this with friends. Thank you so much Lisa! :)
