Every element of this Southern classic is better for you. Whole wheat waffles, oven-baked chicken and a drizzle of spicy honey. Oh, and did we mention it's to die for?


Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup fine cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar

Instructions

  • PREHEAT waffle maker according to manufacturer’s instructions.
  • WHISK flours with cornmeal, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Stir in buttermilk and oil, being careful not to over-mix.
  • BEAT egg whites in a medium bowl with an electric mixer until soft peaks form when beaters are lifted, about 1 min. Sprinkle in sugar and continue beating until glossy peaks form, about 1 more min. Fold egg white mixture into batter until just combined.
