INGREDIENTS
FOR SYRUP
METHOD
  1. Preheat classic waffle maker. (Note: if using a Belgian waffle maker, the waffles will be flat and not as fluffy).
  2. In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, vanilla, milk, vinegar and brown sugar.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until frothy.
  4. Gently fold egg whites into flour mixture. *This step is essential to fluffy waffles so be careful not to over mix.*
  5. Let batter sit for 2-3 minutes.
  6. Lightly grease waffle maker with cooking spray and add batter. Cook for 3-4 minutes.
  7. Meanwhile, combine berries and maple syrup in a small bowl. Microwave for 30-45 seconds until fruit softens.
  8. Transfer to a small saucepan over medium heat. Boil, stirring continuously, until liquid is reduced by half.
  9. Pour syrup over waffle, top with almonds if using, and serve warm.
