Crumble the brown sugar into a large mixing bowl to remove any lumps. Add the flours, wheat germ, baking powder and salt. Whisk to blend. Add the milk, eggs, oil, and vanilla; whisk until smooth. Stir in the apple and walnuts. Let batter rest 5 minutes before using. Preheat the Cuisinart® Waffle Maker to desired setting (a tone will sound when preheated). Pour 2 cups 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, waffles are ready. Open lid and carefully remove baked waffles. Repeat with remaining batter. For best results, serve immediately.
