¾ Cup Whole Wheat Flour
¾ Cup AP Flour
½ Cup Wheat Bran
2 tsp Baking Powder
¼ tsp Baking Soda
½ tsp Salt
1 Cup Buttermilk
¾ Cup Pumpkin Puree
¼ Cup Canola Oil
2 Eggs
2 tsp Vanilla

Soak the bran and the buttermilk in a nonreactive container for ten minutes before preparing the recipe

In a large bowl, stir together the flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the buttermilk bran mixture, pumpkin puree, oil, maple syrup, eggs and vanilla and whisk until well blended.

Preheat your waffle iron and spray it with nonstick spray or brush it with oil. Add enough waffle batter to the hot iron to cover but not overflowing. Cook the waffle for two to three minutes or until crispy. Keep warm in a 200F oven while the rest are being made.
