Waffle Pillows

This is how T described my waffles today "Mom they are like waffle pillows". I took this as a recipe success...little did he know they were whole grain and dairy free. The secret is to separate the eggs and whip the whites until fluffy, folding them back into the batter at the last minute.

Dairy Free Whole Grain Waffles
1 1/2 cup AP flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 Tbsp. ground flax seeds
2 Tbsp. sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 eggs separated
1 3/4 dairy alternative (milk can also be used)
1/3 cup vegetable oil
Preheat waffle iron. Separate eggs and whip whites in a stand mixer until fluffy. Meanwhile in a large bowl whisk together dry ingredients. In a separate bowl combine egg yolk, dairy alternative and oil, whisk until fully incorporated. Create a well in your dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredients. Stir until just smooth, there should still be small lumps. Finally fold in egg whites until batter is uniform. Pour on to hot waffle iron and cook until golden brown. Eat, smile, and be happy!
