Whole Wheat Ricotta Waffles with Blueberry Sauce

Waffles

  • 2 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 4 egg, separated
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 0.5 tsp cinnamon
  • 0.25 tsp nutmeg
  • 0.5 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  1. Beat the egg whites with a mixer until they hold soft peaks. 
  2. Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. 
  3. In a large bowl, whisk ricota, buttermilk, butter, vanilla extract, and egg yolks.  Stir in the flour mixture. Gently fold in the egg whites.  
  4. Pour batter into preheated waffle iron and cook until waffles are crisp and golden.  I like keeping the oven hot at 350 and giving the waffles an extra round of crisping for a few minutes. 
  5. Pour sauce on top of waffles and serve.

  2. Let it cook together for about 5 minutes, and remove the cinnamon stick.
