Breakfast in bed doesn’t have to be a guilty pleasure. These buttermilk waffles are hearty and wholesome for a filling start to your morning.

This recipe is part of our Recipes from the Heart recipe collection.

Recipe Ingredients

2 cups white whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
3 tbsp sugar
2 large eggs, separated
2 large egg whites
1/4 cup Smart Balance® Original Buttery Spread, melted
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup plus 2 tbsp buttermilk
2 tbsp orange juice

Recipe Steps

Preheat your waffle iron according to the manufacturer's instructions.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the whole wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and sugar.

In a separate bowl, use a hand mixer to beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks.

In a small bowl or large measuring cup, combine the egg yolks, melted Smart Balance Butter, vanilla extract, buttermilk and orange juice.

Add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mixer, and mix until combined. The batter will be thick. Use a rubber spatula to gently fold in the egg whites. Let the batter rest for 5 minutes.

Scoop out 1/2 cup portions of waffle batter onto the waffle iron, and cook according to the manufacturer's instructions, until the waffle is golden brown on both sides. Repeat until all the batter has been used.

Waffles should be served immediately, or they can be kept warm in a 200° F oven until ready to serve.
