Weekend Waffles

Weekend waffles are kind of a thing at our house…and I’m totally ok with that.  Our kids love them and we all love having a family breakfast together on the weekends.  This is a new recipe (can be found here) we tried and it’s really a keeper.  We don’t usually try too many new pancake/waffle recipes, because we pretty much love our “usual”.  Oh, and I have always heard that the way to make the crispiest, lightest waffle is to beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form, but I have never been that patient to add the extra step.  Well, today I tried it and there’s no going back.  The best part is that it really did not take any extra time.  I basically just put 2 egg whites into my KitchenAid, turned it on, and then gathered all my ingredients.  By the time, I came back to check on them they were perfect.  Fold them in at the very end and it creates a very light, soft, but crisp on the outside kind of waffle.  My husband went crazy over them!

Ingredients
  1. 1 1/2 cups oat flour
  2. 1/2 cup organic whole wheat flour
  3. 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  4. 1 Tbsp baking powder
  5. 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  6. 1/4 tsp salt
  7. 1 1/2 cups low fat milk
  8. 1/4 cup melted butter or melted coconut oil
  9. 2 egg yolks
  10. 2 egg whites
  11. 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Beat the egg whites on high speed until stiff peaks form (about 2-3 minutes) and set aside.
  2. Mix the flours, cinnamon, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the milk, butter, egg yolks, and vanilla.
  4. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until combined.
  5. Fold the egg whites into the batter and gently stir just until combined. Batter may look a little lumpy from the egg whites, but that's ok.
  6. Cook on a preheated waffle iron.
  7. Garnish with fresh fruit and warm maple syrup.
