Crumble the brown sugar into a medium bowl to remove all lumps. Add the flours, wheat germ, baking powder and salt. Stir to blend. In another bowl, combine the milk, eggs, oil, and vanilla; stir with a whisk. Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and stir until smooth. Stir in the apple and walnuts. Let batter rest 5 minutes before using. Preheat your Cuisinart ® Waffle Iron on setting #3. When preheated, green indicator light will illuminate. Pour ⅓ cup batter onto the center of the lower grid; spread batter using a heatproof spatula to within ½ inch of the edge of the grid. Close lid of waffle iron – green indicator light will turn off. When green indicator light turns on again, waffle is ready. Open lid and carefully remove baked waffle. Repeat with remaining batter. For best results, serve immediately. You may keep waffles warm until ready to serve in a 200° F oven.
