6 servings

2 cups all-purpose flour

½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

¼ cup brown sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt

3 large eggs, separated

2 cups buttermilk

½ cup olive oil or canola oil

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

6 oz. bittersweet chocolate (at least 70% cacao), finely chopped

Chocolate sauce for serving (recipe below)

Berries for serving

Lightly sweetened whipped cream for serving

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. 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. Serve immediately or keep warm in the oven. Serve with chocolate sauce, berries, and whipped cream.

7 oz. bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
