Quarantine Eats: Cinnamon Toast Crunch Waffles

For the waffles:
2 cups Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal divided
2 cups plus 2 tablespoons milk
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs separated
1/4 cup canola oil
Butter or non-stick spray for waffle maker

For the cereal milk glaze:
2 tablespoons cereal milk
2/3 cup powdered sugar
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

1 - Steep 1 cup Cinnamon Toast Crunch in milk for 10-15 minutes. Strain out cereal and discard. Reserve 2 tablespoons cereal milk for glaze.

2 - In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, combine the egg yolks, cereal milk, and oil, and stir into dry ingredients just until combined.

3 - In a small bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; fold into batter. Fold the remaining cup of Cinnamon Toast Crunch into the batter.

4 - Grease a preheated waffle maker with butter or non-stick spray before cooking each waffle. Ladle about 1/2 cup waffle batter into waffle maker and bake until crisp and golden, about 5-6 minutes.

5 - To make the glaze, combine 2 tablespoons of reserved cereal milk, powdered sugar, and cinnamon in a small bowl and whisk until smooth. Drizzle waffles with the glaze, and top with plain Cinnamon Toast Crunch
