Yogurt Waffles

DSC_4552
My husband declared these waffles the best waffles I've ever made. Coming from a guy who doesn't especially enjoy breakfast and hardly ever would choose waffles, this is a big deal. And I must agree with him, these waffles are really darn good. They are light and springy but very filling at the same time. I used greek yogurt and topped them with blackberries and raspberries. A lovely way to start the day!

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon ground flax meal
1 1/2 cups plain yogurt (I used Greek yogurt)
3/4 cup milk

 In a large bowl combine the yogurt, milk, egg yolks, oil, and vanilla. 
Use a wire whisk or electric hand mixer to beat the egg whites to soft peaks.

With a spatula gently fold the dry ingredients into the yogurt mixture until just combined. Batter should be a little lumpy. Fold in the egged whites until just incorporated.

Grease waffle iron. Cook the batter in batches until crisp and golden. Do not stack until ready to serve. Serve as desired.
