Try these doused in real maple syrup for a delicious Saturday morning treat!

1/2 cup buckwheat flour

1 tsp.baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. sea salt
4 eggs, separated
1/4 cup ghee (room temperature)
2 cups milk (you can also use buttermilk for a richer batter)

ghee for greasing the grid of your iron

Preheat the waffle iron as per the manufacturer's instructions.
In a large bowl combine the flours, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
In another bowl, using a whisk or an electric mixture beat the egg yolks, ghee and milk until foamy.
In a small bowl beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form.
Pour the milk mixture into the dry ingredients, stirring until just combined.
Using a spatula, fold the egg whites in gently until no white streaks can be seen.

Brush the waffle iron with ghee and pour about a cup of batter for each waffle.
Close the iron and bake according to instructions.
Remove, drench in maple syrup that has been warmed with a dollop of ghee and ENJOY!
