  1. Preheat a waffle iron, and coat with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the whole wheat flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and baking soda. Make a well in the center, and stir in the buttermilk just until smooth. In a separate bowl, whip egg whites with an electric mixer until thick enough to hold a soft peak. Carefully fold the egg whites into the batter.
  3. Spoon batter onto the hot waffle iron in an amount appropriate for your iron. Close, and cook until the iron stops steaming, and the waffles are golden brown.

This recipe isn't missing some sort of fat it's missing a teaspoon of salt, that's all...Anyways, I absolutely love this recipe and when ever I make them I make double so I can keep some in the ...

It was a very good recipe with healthy ingredients. I used fat free milk instead of buttermilk and added a bit more sugar. It is not expected out of cornmeal and whole wheat flour to make a tend...

I agree with others who mention having to constantly grease the waffle maker (even non-stick), and that they can be a teeny bit dry - these are minor trade-offs for a super-healthy waffle. I re...

I really wanted to like this recipe. Unfortunately, I can't. On paper, it has everything that I think I want from a waffle: low fat content, novelty, whole grains, etc. Perhaps this healthy c...

I halved the recipe; the only change I made was to use 1 whole egg rather than one white. These were nice waffles - no, they are not especially light and fluffy, but that's cause they're whole g...

I actually liked this recipe, but I modified it because as it was written it wouldn't have met my tastes. I used one whole egg (I halved the recipe)because I only had the one, added a tablespoon...

Might have been good had I been able to use it for waffles...alas I had to use it for thin pancakes that were edible, to say the least. The fact that it contained no fat at all allowed my waffl...
