Place the milk, pumpkin, oil, and eggs in a bowl. Stir to blend; reserve. Place the flour in a large bowl. Crumble the brown sugar to remove the lumps; add to the flour along with the baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Stir to blend. Add the liquid ingredients and whisk until smooth. Let batter rest 5 minutes before using. Preheat the Cuisinart® Heart Waffle Maker on setting #3 (green indicator light will be illuminated when preheated). Stir walnuts into batter. Pour ⅓ cup batter onto the center of the lower grid. Allow batter to spread towards edges for 5 seconds. Close lid of waffle maker - indicator light will turn red. When light turns green 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 on a rack placed on a baking sheet in a warm (200°F) oven.
