  • Whip the egg whites on medium speed until foamy. Turn the mixer to high and slowly add the sugar and beat until stiff peaks but don’t make them too dry.
  • Mix together the egg yolks, the egg, the canola oil and the milk.
  • Mix together the flour, oat bran, baking powder and salt. If using the vanilla powder add to the dry ingredients. If using vanilla extract add to the wet ingredients.
  • Make a well in the flour mixture and add the wet ingredients and mix until just blended.
  • Heat your waffle iron per its instructions.
  • Add the whipped egg whites to the batter and fold in well.
  • The batter will be thick, but light.
  • Make the waffles according to your waffle maker’s directions.
  • These freeze very well
