Whole Wheat Waffles (not too heavy!)

Sorry, Kadyb that you can't have these or the bran muffin recipe I'll post next! I have a sister who's allergic to soy and peanut butter, which would also be very hard for me!

This is not new, but is a favorite recipe that my dad & his siblings used to make every Sunday for his family (smart grandma--no Sunday cooking!):

Whole Wheat Waffles--
Makes at least 12+ waffles.

4 c whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 T baking powder
1/2 c sugar
4 c water
6 eggs
1/2 c oil
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/3 nonfat powdered milk
1 c pecans, chopped (optional, but is MY favorite part; you can also use walnuts)

Combine flour, salt, baking powder, & powdered milk. Add 2 c water in one bowl.
Separate egg whites from yolks (put yolks in at least a 3 c bowl) and whip whites until fluffy (stiff peaks). Mix oil and 2 c water w/ the yolks.

Mix wet and dry ingredients until smooth, leaving out the stiff egg whites.
Add nuts.
Fold in stiff egg whites (this is what makes the waffles lighter even though they're whole wheat)
Cook waffles until golden brown.
