  • 1 1/2 cups fairlife whole ultra-filtered milk
  • 1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 ½ teaspoons sugar, divided
  • 2 teaspoons instant yeast
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, separated
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup blueberries (about 3 ounces), plus more for serving
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • Pure maple syrup, for serving


  • Step 1

    In a large bowl, whisk together all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, yeast, salt and 1 tablespoon sugar.

  • Step 2

    Heat fairlife ultra-filtered milk to lukewarm (95ºF to 105ºF). Stir warm milk, butter and vanilla into dry ingredients, just until combined.

  • Step 3

    Tightly cover bowl with plastic wrap and let batter stand at room temperature, at least 1 hour or overnight.

  • Step 4

    Heat waffle iron until very hot. Meanwhile, whisk egg yolks, baking soda, cinnamon and remaining 1 ½ teaspoons sugar into batter.

  • Step 5

    Beat egg whites to medium peaks, then fold into batter. Then gently fold in blueberries.

  • Step 6

    Coat waffle iron with nonstick spray and pour batter into waffle iron (amount of batter needed will vary according to machine). Cook waffles until golden and cooked through.

  • Step 7

    Serve immediately, or keep warm in a 200ºF oven while you cook remaining waffles. Pass around extra blueberries and maple syrup at the table.

    Freezer Instructions: Individually wrap finished waffles in plastic wrap or store between sheets of parchment paper in an airtight container. Freeze for 1-2 weeks. Re-heat in a toaster oven or low-heat oven.
