1.  Using a whisk, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add the eggs and oil and whisk until blended. Stir in the yogurt and then the buttermilk, and whisk until mixture is smooth. Stir in banana and walnuts until incorporated. Let batter rest 5 minutes before using.

2.  Preheat the Cuisinart® Breakfast Central to desired setting (a tone will sound when preheated).

3.  Pour 1½ heaping cups of batter onto the center of the lower grid of the preheated waffle maker; spread evenly using a heatproof spatula. Close cover of waffle maker. When tone sounds, waffles are ready. Open cover and carefully remove baked waffles. Repeat with remaining batter. For best results, serve immediately.
