  1. Preheat waffle iron. Preheat oven to 200°F.
  2. Toast poppy seeds in a small dry skillet over medium heat until fragrant, 30 to 60 seconds. Transfer to a mixing bowl and whisk in flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. Whisk egg whites, egg, yogurt, sugar, oil, vanilla and lemon zest in a medium bowl. Whisk into dry ingredients until just moistened.
  4. Lightly coat waffle iron with cooking spray. Spoon in batter and cook until waffle is crisp and golden. Transfer to oven to keep warm. Repeat with remaining batter, lightly coating iron with nonstick spray each time, if necessary. Dust the waffles with confectioners' sugar before serving, if desired.

Fluffy yumminess! I just made pancakes using this recipe and obtained the most gorgeous fluffiest pancakes! My Husband said, at first bite, Throw out all your other pancake recipes! The only changes I made; 1) left out the poppy seeds 2) added 2 tsp of pure vanilla extract (instead of 3) 3) added 1 tsp of fresh squeezed lemon juice along with the zest. They cooked quickly, oh and before serving I popped them in the microwave for 30 secs as I noticed a little raw batter. Served 2 each with maple syrup and macerated strawberries. Freezing the other 5 1/2. ... So tempted to have another one! : p Pros: Straightforward recipe

Delicious! This recipe is fantastic! I plan to make them as muffins next time and add the lemon curd for icing! I used crisco instead of cooking spray and it may just be my waffle iron but these stuck to them and the inside was a bit doughy I guess from using yogurt. I just made them as pancakes instead. Very delicious. Pros: easy to make Cons: Stick to the waffle iron
