What is the smart points value?

Per the calculator, 5 SP

I have hated college cheese since I was a very young Brownie. Our group took a tour of the local dairy: we walked by the machine that made cottage cheese. The horrible stench that came from that machine, and the look of turning milk into lumpy white something, made my weak stomach do the worst thing it could do in a dairy. I never lived it down and I never ate cottage cheese again.

This recipe seems to remove all evidence of cottage cheese-ism and may finally convert me after all these years. I know that it is often recommended wherever healthy eating is discussed. I can't wait to try this. Thanks.

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! :)

This recipe worked out great this morning especially for my carb lovin' 3 yr old.
