My kids love waffles-- I will bake up a ton and freeze them so we have them on hand all of the time. I usually make half a batch of regular waffles and half a batch of chocolate chip waffles. The chocolate chip ones are perfect for grab-and-go breakfasts on school mornings since there is no syrup required. A little blast of chocolate in each bite! Who doesn't like to start their mornings off with chocolate?
1 3/4 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp sugar
3 eggs, separated
7 tbsp oil (which is 1 tbsp less than 1/2 cup)
1 1/2 cups of milk
A handful or two of chocolate chips
Sift all of the dry ingredients, except the chocolate chips, in a large bowl.
Beat egg whites stiff in their own bowl.
Add yolks, oil and milk to dry ingredients.
Beat until there are no lumps in batter.
Fold in the egg whites.
Using a measuring cup, pour batter on prepared waffle iron. Quickly sprinkle some chocolate chips on the batter before closing the iron lid.
Cook waffle for two minutes or until steam output slows down.
