Original recipe yields 12 waffles



  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 freezer for a quick delicious breakfast.

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 tender and fluffy texture but it is healthy and has a special taste to it. My dear husband and I had it with jam, syrup and peanut butter. It was so filling. I will definetly make it again in the future. Thanks for a good recipe.

These were just ok. I think it's lacking some kind of fat (or something, even applesauce) to tenderize and moisturize it a little. I used lowfat buttermilk, added one egg yolk and a teaspoon of oil and they were still too dry and hard. I had to spray the top AND the bottom of my iron every time with cooking spray and they still stuck to it (and I have a nice non-stick iron that works great). I like to use blue cornmeal so I used that. I don't think I'd make this recipe again.
