  1. Preheat a waffle maker according to manufacturer's directions.
  2. Whisk whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, oat flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl. Whisk egg yolks, milk, canola oil, and vanilla extract in a separate bowl. Beat egg whites in a third bowl (not plastic) with an electric mixer until soft peaks form when you lift the beaters straight out of the beaten eggs, 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour the milk mixture into the well; mix batter until smooth. Gently fold the egg whites into the batter, retaining as much volume as possible. Let batter stand until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.
  4. Pour 1/2 cup of batter, or amount recommended by the manufacturer, onto the waffle maker; close lid and bake waffle until browned and crisp, 2 to 4 minutes.

I did not have oat flour, what I did was use equal amounts oats that I "ground" down in my blender to a fine consistancy (think whole wheat flour). Other than that, I kept to the recipe exact. This waffle turned out soft and fluffy with a crisp exterior--a wonderful waffle! NOTE: Keep in mind when you use whole wheat flour or oats in any form that after you mix the batter up, you will have to let the batter sit for 5-10 minutes to get the whole wheat flour/oats soak up some of the liquid. This way, the batter won't be thin and run all over the outside of your waffle iron.

Makes good crispy waffles. A little on the sweet side for our taste, so I will play around with the sugar. Whipping the egg whites really produces a nice batter consistency.

This recipe was amazing! If you like sweet things, these will definitely please you! I added some cinnamon and flax seeds to the batter as well (neither addition was noticeable in terms of taste, but it's nice to have the extra flax nutrients and the blood sugar balance effect from the cinnamon added in!). The egg white makes them so fluffy and slightly crisp- it's like a funnel cake without being fried. I could easily put vanilla ice cream on one and eat it for dessert :P. I would definitely make these again!

It was a real treat for my family, I mean I could just eat the waffle with out our syrup, it's really that good.

this is my go to waffle recipe! the tiny but if extra time to best the egg whites is absolutely worth the crisp lighter tasting waffle that still has that earthy whole wheat flavor. I, like many others, just put oats in a food processor for oat flour.

I made these this morning because my 5 year old daughter asked if we could have waffles for breakfast. I used 1 cup white whole wheat flour & 1/2 cup oat flour (just because I didn't feel like making more oat flour & that's what I had on hand). Absolutely delicious! Hopefully, they freeze well bc I plan on freezing a few for a quick breakfast on school mornings...I can just pop them in the toaster oven! Thanks for sharing!

These were delicious! I substituted almond milk for the milk and added 1/2 tsp cinnamon and a grated, peeled apple. Very tasty! A definite favorite that will be enjoyed again!
