“These healthy waffles are made from a blend of whole-wheat and regular flour plus nonfat buttermilk and canola oil. Top with fresh berries or sliced peaches and yogurt for a satisfying start to any day.”

Ingredients

    • 1 cup whole-wheat flour
    • 1 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
    • ½ teaspoon salt
    • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
    • 2 cups nonfat buttermilk, (see Tip)
    • 1 large egg, separated
    • 1 tablespoon canola oil
    • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract, (optional)
    • 2 large egg whites
    • 2 tablespoons sugar

Directions

  • 1 Stir whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda in a large bowl. Whisk buttermilk, the egg yolk, oil and vanilla (if using) in a separate bowl. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon just until moistened.
  • 2 Beat the 3 egg whites in a grease-free mixing bowl with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Add sugar and continue beating until stiff and glossy. Whisk one-quarter of the beaten egg whites into the batter. Fold in the remaining beaten egg whites with a rubber spatula.
  • 3 Preheat a waffle iron. Brush the surface lightly with oil. Fill the waffle iron two-thirds full of batter. Cook until the waffles are crisp and golden, 5 to 6 minutes. Repeat with the remaining batter, brushing the surface with oil before cooking each batch.
  • No buttermilk? You can use buttermilk powder prepared according to package directions. Or make “sour milk”: the ratio is 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar to 1 cup milk.
