Preheat oven to 250°.

Whisk flour, cocoa powder, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.

Make a well in the center and add egg yolks, buttermilk, oil, and vanilla.

Blend with a fork, then gradually incorporate dry ingredients, mixing just until combined.

Using an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat egg whites in a small bowl until soft peaks form.(It took about 6 min)

Working in 2 batches, fold egg whites into batter just until combined. Fold in chocolate.

Heat a waffle iron until very hot; lightly coat with nonstick spray. Working in batches, cook waffles until cooked through. Transfer to a wire rack and keep warm in oven until ready to serve.
