1/4 cup toasted walnuts


  1. Beat together egg, egg whites, sugar, milk, oil, pumpkin and vanilla.  Mix dry ingredients.  Add to egg mixture.  Do not over mix.  Fold in apple and nuts.  Make waffles with 3/4 cup of batter per waffle.  Try topping with vanilla flavored nonfat yogurt or spiced apples.  Also try making with half whole wheat flour for a heartier flavor and added fiber.
