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 resembles 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 ½ cup of batter onto the center of the lower grid. Allow batter to spread towards edges for 5 seconds. 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 on a rack placed on a baking sheet in a warm (200°F) oven.
