1. Combine all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl; whisk until well blended. Add the milk, eggs, syrup and vanilla. Whisk until smooth. Stir in the oils and yogurt and whisk again until combined. Fold in the nuts, if using. Let batter rest 5 minutes before using.
2. Preheat the Cuisinart® Waffle Maker to desired setting (a tone will sound when preheated).
3. Pour 1 heaping cup of batter onto the center of the lower grid of the preheated waffle maker; spread batter evenly using a heatproof spatula. Close lid of waffle maker. When tone sounds, waffle is ready. Open lid and carefully remove baked waffle. Repeat with remaining batter. For best results, serve immediately.
