  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 2 large eggs separated
  • cup buttermilk
  • 4 tbsp melted butter cooled
  • ½ tsp vanilla


  • Heat waffle iron.
  • Whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon together in a large mixing bowl, until well combined.
  • Whisk together the egg yolk, buttermilk, cooled melted butter, and vanilla in a small bowl, until well combined..
  • In a separate bowl, beat or whisk the egg whites until it just holds a 2-inch peak.
  • Slowly add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients in a thin, steady stream while mixing gently with a rubber spatula.
  • Side Note: Do not add liquid faster than you can incorporate it into the batter.
  • Toward the end of mixing, use a folding motion to incorporate the ingredients.
  • Gently ford the egg white into the batter. Set aside for a few minutes.
  • Spray the hot waffle iron well with coconut oil cooking spray.
  • Spread an appropriate amount of batter onto the waffle iron.
  • Following your waffle iron's instructions, cook the waffle until golden brown, 2-5 minutes.
  • Serve immediately with butter, syrup, and jam, if desired. Enjoy.
