Sweet Whole Wheat Waffles

  • Prep Time : 15m
  • Cook Time : 5m
  • Ready In : 20m


  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • ¾ cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 ¾ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 ½ cups milk, preferably whole or 2%
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature, yolks and whites separated
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted, plus more for brushing the iron
  • 1 large egg white, at room temperature
  • ¼ cup honey


Step 1

Preheat a waffle iron to medium-high. In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg.

Step 2

In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, egg yolks, vanilla, and melted butter.

Step 3

Whisk the milk mixture into the flour mixture, and mix until just combined making sure not to over mix the batter.

Step 4

In medium bowl, with a hand-held electric mixer or by hand with a whisk, whip the 3 egg whites until they just begin to hold a loose peak. Pour the honey over the whites and continue beating until they hold a soft peak.

Step 5

Using a rubber spatula gently fold the egg whites into the batter adding about a third of the egg whites at a time until they are completely incorporated.

Step 6

Spray the inside surface of the iron with oil or cooking spray. Pour in enough batter into the iron to lightly cover the surface of the iron, about 1/3 to 3/4 cup, depending upon the size of the iron. Cover and cook until golden brown and slightly crisp, about 5 minutes. Repeat with the remaining batter or save the rest for tomorrow morning!
