In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder and salt together. In another bowl, beat the egg yolks with a fork, mixing in the milk and vegetable oil and add to the flour mixture all at once. Stir until blended all together. In another bowl, beat the egg whites till they form a soft peak and gently fold them into the flour mixture. (Don't over-mix - you want to have them fluffy and light, over mixing will make them tough.) If batter looks too thick, you can add a few extra drops of milk. (The batter should look thicker than pancake batter.) Spray the waffle iron well with non-stick cooking spray before pouring batter in iron. Be certain to spray after each waffle, so they do not stick. Serve with syrup or fruit.
Our grandsons love waffles and especially love chocolate chip waffles. We just got a new waffle maker that makes the larger Belgian style waffles. We found that mixing chocolate chips in the batter makes a mess on the waffle iron when they melt.
We solved the problem by baking the waffles plain first, then when they come out of the waffle maker nice and hot, we sprinkle the chocolate chips in the squares. The boys love it this way now and we just cut the strips of waffles so they can just pick up a strip and enjoy their "chocolate chip waffle". The chips melt in the squares and no mess on the waffle iron.
