1.  Combine the flours, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon 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® 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 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.
