Yield: 4 waffles

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes


  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp fine ground sea salt
  • 1 pear, cored and shredded (about 1 cup)
  • 2 tbsp chopped raw walnuts
  • 1 cup milk (any variety)
  • 1 large egg white
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract

Optional toppings: chopped pear, chopped walnuts, pure maple syrup


  1. In a large bowl, stir together the flours, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Add the pear and walnuts and toss to coat them with the dry ingredients.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the milk, egg white, and vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir just until combined. The batter will be thick.
  3. Spray a waffle iron well with nonstick cooking spray and preheat. Add ½ cup of the batter to the waffle iron and use a spoon or spatula to spread it across the surface. Close waffle iron and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, until the waffle is browned and cooked through. Repeat with the remaining waffles. Serve warm with your favorite toppings.
