Then add oil.
Using a whisk or electric mixer, beat the egg whites until they form peaks,
Then turn the whites into the batter. Do this gently, you do not want to overmix this.
Spray the waffle griddle with vegetable oil or non-stick cooking spray. Pour about ¾ cup of batter onto the griddle, spread it around a bit.
Close the griddle and sit tight. after 3-4 minutes, gently lift the lid and check the bottom for done-ness, if its nicely browned, flip the waffle griddle to cook the other side. Cook for a few minutes more until nicely browned.
Serve with Maple Syrup and butter, you can also dust with confectioners sugar.
