Whole Wheat Pecan Waffles

Recipe by Canadian Living.

These waffles are rich and delicious. A nice change to your ordinary waffles.  The only thing I was missing was a nice dollop of whip cream on top, then they would have been perfect.

What you'll need
1 cup All-purpose flour
3/4 cup Whole wheat flour
1 cup Pecans, chopped
2 tbsp Sugar
2 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Baking soda
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Salt
Pinch Nutmeg
1 1/4 cup Buttermilk
2 Eggs, separated
1/4 cup Unsalted butter, melted
1/3 cup Vegetable oil
1/2 tsp Vanilla

How to
1.  In bowl, whisk together flours, 3/4 cup of the pecans, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg.

2.  In another bowl, whisk together buttermilk, egg yolks, butter, 1/4 cup of the oil, and vanilla; pour over dry ingredients and stir just until combined. Let stand for 10 minutes.

3.  In separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; fold into batter.

4.  Heat waffle iron; brush with remaining oil. Using about 1/2 cup batter per waffle, pour onto waffle iron. Close lid and cook until crisp (I like mine soft), golden and steam stops, about 4 minutes. Serve sprinkled with remaining pecans. Makes 8 large waffles.
