Pre-heat waffle iron.
In a 2-cup measuring cup, mix together club soda, egg, vanilla and butter. In a medium bowl whisk together the Baking Mix, salt, and brown sugar. Slowly add the liquid to the dry mix. It will be a little lumpy. Mix chocolate chips and nuts (if using) into batter and bake right away in hot waffle iron.
Bake about 2 minutes per side with stove top waffle iron, until golden brown; or on medium-high setting with electric waffle iron, according to directions.
Serve immediately or keep warm in a 200° oven on a wire rack on a sheet pan. The waffles will stay warm and crisp. Waffles can be re-warmed in the oven on a rack.
Chef’s Note: May be topped for a dessert, but they are delicious just plain, and can be held in the hand! Great for a lunch box treat.
