Prep time 15 minutes
Total time 1 hour 15 minutes
Portion size 12 waffles
2-1/4 cups (550 mL) 12-grain flour
1 tbsp (15 mL) granulated sugar
2 tsp (10 mL) baking powder
1 tsp (5 mL) baking soda
1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt
3 eggs, separated
2-1/4 cups (550 mL) buttermilk
1/4 cup (60 mL) unsalted butter, melted
2 tbsp (30 mL) vegetable oil
In large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside.
Beat egg whites until soft peaks form; set aside.
In separate bowl, whisk together egg yolks, buttermilk and butter; pour over dry ingredients, stirring to combine. Fold in egg whites just until combined.
Heat waffle iron; brush lightly with some of the oil. Pour in about 1/3 cup batter for each waffle, spreading to edge. Close lid and cook until steam stops and waffles are crisp and golden, 4 to 6 minutes. Serve warm. (Make-ahead: Individually wrap waffles in plastic wrap; freeze for up to 3 months. Reheat in toaster.)
