1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 teaspoons packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 eggs, separated
1 cup milk
1/4 cup melted butter, plus extra for waffle iron
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 sweet apple, such as Fuji or Gala, cored, and grated


Preheat waffle iron.

In a bowl, whisk together flours, baking powder, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Set aside.

In another bowl, whisk together egg yolks, milk, butter, and vanilla. Stir egg yolk mixture into dry mixture until combined (some lumps are fine). Gently fold in egg whites, then fold in apple.

Brush melted butter over hot waffle iron. Spoon batter into waffle iron and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until nicely browned.
