2 cups buttermilk

1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter, melted

Special equipment:

  1. Preheat a waffle iron. Combine the flour, whole wheat flour, light brown sugar, wheat germ, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, melted butter and eggs. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Add the pecans and stir just to combine.
