Calories - 183.4,   Total Fat - 7.4g,   Carb. - 23.8g,   Protein - 5.9g,   Fiber - 0.6g

1 1/3 cup all purpose flour
4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp fresh ground nutmeg
2 eggs, separated
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
2 TBS honey
1 1/2 cups skim milk
1/2 cup low fat buttermilk

1.  Heat waffle iron while preparing batter.  Heat iron according to manufacturers directions.
2.  In large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder and nutmeg.  
3.  In med mixing bowl, add egg whites and beat with electric mixer until stiff peaks form.  Set aside. 
4.  In small bowl, or 4 cup glass measure, combine skim milk, buttermilk, honey, unsalted butter and egg yolks.  Pour this mixture into the flour mixture and mix well with whisk.  
5.  Gently fold in the whipped egg whites until mostly combined.  Batter will become light and fluffy as you add the egg whites in.  
6.  Cook waffles in waffle iron following manufactures directions. Use the amount of batter your waffle iron suggests per waffle.  Use the above nutrition information as a guide.    I use ample amounts of cooking spray between each waffle to help with release.  (My waffle iron takes about 1 cup of batter per waffle, so a serving size for me is 1/2 waffle.)  To keep waffles warm and crispy while making them, I keep ones that are done in a warm oven, right on the oven rack, while I finish using all the batter.
