Beat the egg whites until stiff, not dry. Stir while pouring buttermilk mixture into dry mixture. Mix just to combine. Do not over mix. Stir enough to remove lumps. Fold in egg whites. If batter is to thick, thin it with buttermilk. Heat a waffle iron, brush with butter or oil. Pour batter on the iron and spread to form an even layer, thick enough to cover cooking area.
