Directions

Step 1

Heat the honey, lemon juice and lemon zest over medium heat in a small saucepan, stirring occasionally, until warm, about 4 minutes.

Step 2

Preheat the waffle maker. Lightly spray the waffle grills with vegetable oil cooking spray.

Step 3

Beat the egg whites using a whisk or an electric hand mixer in a medium bowl, until they are thick and hold soft peaks, about 2 minutes.

Step 4

Combine the egg yolks, milk, sugar, vanilla extract, almond extract and lemon zest in a large bowl. Beat until smooth. Add the all-purpose flour, almond flour, baking powder and salt. Mix until smooth. Fold the egg whites, butter and chocolate chips (if using) into the batter.

Step 5

Using the amount recommended by the waffle iron manufacturer’s instructions, about 1/3 cup of batter for each waffle, pour the batter into the preheated waffle iron. Cook the waffles until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Drizzle with lemon honey and serve.
