  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup polenta
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 eggs (at room temperature, separated)
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk (at room temperature)
  • 3/4 cup low-fat milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil

  1. Heat the waffle iron. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, polenta, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. In a separate bowl whisk or beat the egg whites until soft peaks form.
