Special equipment: a waffle iron

Preheat a waffle iron. Combine the flour, whole wheat flour, light brown sugar, wheat germ, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, melted butter and eggs. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
