5 egg whites
1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup low-fat soy milk
1 cup canned 100% pure pumpkin puree (not pie filling)
4 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Coat a nonstick waffle iron with cooking spray. Preheat according to the manufacturer's directions.
2. Place the egg whites in a mixing bowl and beat on high until stiff peaks form.
3. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk in the soy milk, pumpkin, honey, oil, and vanilla just until blended. Gently fold in the egg whites until just combined.
4. Spoon 1/2 cup of batter on the bottom grids, covering two-thirds of the grids. Close the iron and bake according to the manufacturer's directions.
5. Using a rubber spatula, carefully remove the waffle from the iron. Repeat with the remaining batter.
