Place both flours, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a mixing bowl and stir to combine. Stir eggs and vanilla together and then stir into dry ingredients. Stir butter, yogurt, and milk into mixture successively until it is a smooth batter. Finally stir in chopped pecans. Let batter rest 5 minutes before using. Preheat your Cuisinart® Waffle Iron on setting #3. When preheated, green indicator light will illuminate. Pour 2 cups of batter onto the center of the lower grid. Allow batter to spread toward edges for 5 seconds. Close lid of waffle iron – green indicator light will turn off. When green indicator light turns on again, waffles are ready. Open lid and carefully remove baked waffles. Repeat with remaining batter. For best results, serve immediately.
