Pecan Waffles Recipe

I've tried for years to duplicate a delicious waffle I ate at a restaurant chain here in the South. This is the closest I've come, and they're crisp and nutty. Butter and maple syrup are my family's favorite toppings. Why not serve them for your holiday brunch? -Susan Jansen, Smyrna, Georgia

"Loved these waffles. I used white whole wheat flour and coconut oil instead of canola. I mixed the pecans into the batter before folding in the egg whites. The texture of these waffles was perfect."

"Very good. I mixed the pecans in the batter like a previous reviewer suggested. I did leave 1/2 the batter plain for those in the house who do not like pecan and waffles were equally delicious."
