Whole Wheat Waffles

My aunt has always made delicious healthy food so it was really no surprise that her waffles are my go-to breakfast choice. They are golden and fluffy and freeze so well. If you are in a hurry, whisk in the eggs whole. If you have the time, beat the egg whites separately. It does make a difference in the texture.

Whole Wheat Waffles
My Aunts Recipe
2c. whole wheat flour
1/3c. wheat germ - I added this, optional
1/3c. brown sugar
1 1/2t. baking powder
1t. baking soda
1/2t. cinnamon
2c. buttermilk
1/3c. butter, melted
1t. vanilla
4 eggs, separated

Beat the egg whites on high speed until fluffy.
Mix the dry ingredients in large bowl and set aside.
Combine the wet ingredients and pour into the dry ingredients. Stir. Fold in the eggwhites carefully.
Spoon 1/4c. batter onto each square of the wafflemaker and bake 3 minutes.
Serve hot or cool completely and freeze for up to one month.
