  • 2 stiff beaten egg whites
  • 4 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 beaten egg yolks
  • 1 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 Tablespoons butter divided
  • 2 cups Fisher Nuts Pecan Halves coarsely chopped
  • Additional Fisher Nuts Pecan Halves and maple syrup for topping


  • Beat egg whites until stiff. Beat in sugar and set aside.
  • Combine together flour, baking powder and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, combine egg yolks, milk, oil and maple syrup. Beat in dry ingredients. Add oil and beat until well blended.
  • Fold in the egg whites. Do not over mix, but make certain the egg whites are evenly distributed in the batter.
  • Preheat your waffle iron.
  • For each waffle, melt a small pad of butter onto the waffle iron. Add 1/4 cup pecans (or a generous handful) to the waffle iron. Close and allow pecans to toast for 2 minutes. Open the lid and add the amount of waffle batter your waffle iron recommends (typically 1/4 cup - 1/2 cup batter). Close and allow to cook until done, approximately 4 minutes. (Time may vary depending on your waffle iron.)
  • Carefully remove the cooked waffle, and place on a pan, pecan side up, to warm in the oven until all of the waffles are cooked.
  • Place leftover Fisher Nuts Pecan Halves for garnish onto the waffle iron with melted butter. Toast for 2 minutes.
  • Top cooked waffles with extra toasted pecans and maple syrup.
