Breakfast of the Month: Meyer Lemon Cornmeal Waffles


Made with 100% whole grains, these waffles have a tasty, nutty flavor and a more robust texture than the average waffle. In addition to the cornmeal, you can use whatever whole-grain flour you have on hand, including whole-wheat or spelt flour. The addition of almond meal and coconut oil adds a mild, sweet flavor and gives a lusciously moist texture to the batter, while beating the egg whites helps to give the waffles a bit of a lift. Serve with a drizzle of honey and a spritz of fresh lemon juice, and the waffles are bound to wake up your taste buds on any given winter morning.

The lemon-honey combo makes a nice change from maple syrup and is perfect when there are no berries or fresh fruit on hand. Meyer lemons (in season now) have a delightfully sweet flavor and unique floral aroma. Their lack of acidity makes them perfect for any recipe on the sweet spectrum and, as with most citrus, they pair brilliantly with cornmeal. These special lemons have a gorgeous, deep yellow color that gives their zest the ability to enhance the golden color of anything from pancakes to cookies.
