Make-it-Yourself Monday: Whole Wheat Waffles

This has been my favorite waffle recipe since I started regularly making waffles a couple years ago. They're completely whole wheat, but amazingly light and fluffy.

Whole Wheat Waffles

2 C. whole wheat flour
2 1/2 t. baking powder
3/4 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
2 T. honey
4 eggs, separated
1 C. plain low-fat yogurt
1 1/3 C. milk
1/3 C. oil or melted better

In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff, but not dry.

In a separate bowl, blend together the honey, egg yolks, yogurt, milk and oil. Add the dry mixture to the wet, blending thoroughly. Fold beaten egg whites into the batter.

Bake according to directions on your waffle maker.
