Hawaiian Waffles

If you read "Breakfast - Food for Thought", I suggested to stay away from sugery breakfast items but this is such a good treat!!! I'd be lying if I told you I stayed completely away from foods that were not the best thing for me!

1 can (20 oz) crushed pineapple, undrained 1/2 c sugar
1/2 c flaked coconut 1/2 c light corn syrup
1/4 c pineapple juice

2 c all-purpose flour 4 tsp baking powder
1 Tbsp sugar 1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs, separated 1 c milk
1/4 c butter or margarine, melted 1/4 c flaked coconut
1 can (8oz) crushed pineapple, drained 1/4 c chopped macadamia nuts
Add'l chopped macadamia nuts, toasted - optional

In a saucepan, combine the first 5 ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered for 12-15 minutes or until sauce begins to thicken then set aside.

In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar & salt. In a separate bowl, combine egg yolks, milk & butter; stir into dry ingredients just until combined. Stir in pineapple, coconut & nuts. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; fold into batter (batter will be thick). Preheat waffle iron. Fill & bake according to manufacturer's directions. Top with pineapple sauce & additional nuts, if desired.
