  2. Place the eggwhites in a medium bowl and whisk until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the eggwhites into the flour mixture to combine.
  3. Preheat a lightly greased waffle maker according to manufacturer’s instructions. Cook ¾-cup of the waffle mixture for 3–4 minutes or until crisp. Repeat with the remaining mixture to make 6 waffles.
