Coat the inside of your waffle iron with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat to medium-high.

Separate egg whites and yolks into individual medium-size bowls. With an electric mixer, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form.
Whisk together egg yolks, vegetable oil, milk, and vanilla. Pour into dry ingredients and mix well. Fold in egg whites.
Pour batter into waffle iron. Cook for 5-10 minutes, checking occasionally.
Serve with fresh berries, butter, maple syrup and/or whipped cream.
To freeze, wrap each waffle in wax or plastic wrap. Place in a resealable container or bag. Freeze for up to 6 months. Defrost and warm up in a toaster oven (2 minutes) or low setting in your oven (10 minutes).Adapted from Genius Kitchen
