Whole Wheat Waffles

Makes 10 waffles (4×4-inch squares)


  • 3 cups whole wheat white flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • salt to taste (optional)
  • 4 large egg whites, lightly beaten
  • 3 cups low-fat butter milk (you can use low-fat or skim milk too)
  • 1/2 cup  canola oil


  1. Preheat your waffle iron while you make the batter.
  2. In a large bowl, add the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, sugar and salt if using. Stir  until everything is mixed together.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients: egg whites, milk and melted butter or oil.
  4. Mix together the wet and dry ingredients, stirring just until combined.  The batter will look lumpy but that is fine.  Over mixing will result in flat, chewy waffles.
  5. Since all waffle irons cook differently, cook the waffles according to the directions that came with your waffle iron.
