Delicious Bran and Whole Wheat Waffles


I love this recipe and so does my two year old! These waffles are so healthy and have so much flavor!

3 Lg. eggs, separated (use only 1 yolk)
1 C unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 C Bran (Wheat or Oat, I use wheat)
1/4 C Whole Wheat Flour
1 Tsp baking soda
1/2 Tsp baking powder
1/4 Tsp salt
1 1/2 C buttermilk (I always make my own with 1C milk to 1Tbsp Vinegar ratio, let sit for 5 minutes)
2 Tbsp Butter, melted

Combine flours, bran, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl. Stir until well combined. Whisk together buttermilk, egg yolk, and butter.

Beat egg whites separately until stiff but not dry. 
 Preheat waffle iron. 
Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture and stir briefly until blended.
Add beaten egg whites to batter and mix just until combined. 

Bake on a hot waffle iron
