2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1 stick butter, melted
2 tablespoons honey
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole-wheat flour
3 tablespoons firmly packed light brown sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 to 2 granny smith apples; peeled and minced
Cinnamon Sugar Mixture: 1/2 cup sugar with 1 teaspoon cinnamon.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, butter, and honey.
In a large bowl, mix the all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, pour in the egg mixture, whisk until mostly smooth, with just a few lumps. Ladle the batter into the waffle maker, using 1/2 – 3/4 cup batter per batch. Spread the batter so that it almost reaches the edges of the waffle maker. Add apples into the batter. Cook until the waffles are crisp and browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Using a fork, remove the waffles from the waffle maker and sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar mixture. (You can make the waffles to this point up to 4 hours ahead. Cool completely, then wrap tightly and refrigerate).
