3 large eggs
3/4 cup buttermilk, warmed
3/4 cup milk, warmed
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 medium Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored and grated
1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour (or all-purpose flour is fine too)
1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1. Preheat waffle iron. In large bowl, whisk together eggs, buttermilk, milk and butter. Stir in apple. In another bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, spice, baking soda and salt. Add flour mixture to egg mixture; whisk until smooth (some small lumps are okay).
2. Sprinkle 2 Tablespoons pecans (if using) onto waffle iron. Pour about 2/3 cup batter onto surface. Cook waffles until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Keep warm in 200°F. oven while cooking the remaining waffles.
3. Serve with warmed maple syrup and a sprinkle of powdered sugar.

Notes: I made this with a lousy waffle machine I bought from a garage sale. Waffles take more than 15mins to be crispy. Also be sure to oil the waffle iron before putting on the batter.
