Cinnamon Pecan Waffles

We got an awesome new waffle maker (thanks Mike and Jess!) that we LOVE. It's not belgian, just regular. And it makes six, count them SIX waffles at once. We like the shallow squares of the regular waffle maker and the fact that it makes six at once just makes Scott really happy for some reason. came with an instruction manual that had recipes in it (which in any other instruction manual I have not even thought about saving) but I thought I'd try some.
Yesterday morning I made these and they were delicious! Just a little extra flavor and different texture. Delectable.
(The recipe said it would make 30, so I halved it)

Cinnamon Pecan Waffles
Makes 15 waffles (on a 6-waffle pan, so 90)
3 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
2 1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoons baking soda
3/4 teaspoons salt
2 3/4 cups milk
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
         {or applesauce to keep it healthy}
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Crumble the brown sugar to remove all lumps and place in a medium mixing bowl with the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Combine the milk, oil and eggs; stir until blended and smooth. Add to the dry ingredients and stir until smooth. Stir in the chopped pecans. Let batter rest 5 minutes before using.
We loved homemade maple syrup on it.
P.S. The picture doesn't do it justice.
