White Chocolate Macadamia Waffles

It's time to unveil my rotating waffle maker and to make it more dramatic, I should make the first waffles for my benefactor and the flavor of his choice. Actually, R who gifted me with the gadget told me he wants white chocolate macadamia and even as I haven't done that before, I'm up for the challenge. It's not like it's difficult to make waffles he he. My note to self is to stick to my recipe with minor changes here and there.
I figured this will be nutty because of the macadamia nuts and I need to adjust the sugar because I will be folding white chocolate chips into the batter. And I don't really like white chocs coz' it's just sugar. I would prefer dark chocolate but then that's what fairy godfather wants so I have to acquiesce.

So this is how my recipe came up

White Chocolate Macadamia Waffles

2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup Macadamia nuts, ground
4 eggs, separated
2 tsp vanilla
1 ¾ cup 2% fat milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
white chocolate chunks or chips (sprinkled with 2 tbsp flour)

In a medium bowl, stir flour, sugar, baking powder and baking soda. Mix well.
Preheat waffle iron.
In a separate large bowl, whisk egg yolks, vanilla, and milk.
Add the dry ingredients mixture and whisk until the batter is smooth. Set aside
Pulse the macadamia nuts in a blender and fold into the waffle batter
In another clean bowl, beat egg whites until stiff
Fold egg whites into waffle batter.
Spray waffle maker with baking spray
Pour batter into the waffle iron - one cup fits all four cavities in my waffle maker
Plop some white chocolate chips into each cavity
Cook for four minutes or until waffle maker light turns green/beeps
Rotate the waffle maker to the right, open the lid and use a spatula to loosen the waffle

Transfer to a plate and serve with unsalted butter, extra macadamia nuts and maple syrup if desired
It was delicious- crispy outside and soft inside. I think I'll just rough chop the nuts next time instead of pulsing because they were kind of lost in the batter. The waffles didn't need maple syrup because the white sugar err... chocs are already sweet he he he.
