Whole Wheat Waffles

We wanted to have waffles the other day and were out of all-purpose flour but had some whole wheat pastry flour. After some searching, I put together this recipe, which is a mash-up of a couple different recipes. We liked the waffles – they were surprisingly fluffy and light for a whole wheat waffle!
