Topping: In skillet, melt butter over medium heat; stir in sugar. Add apples; cook, stirring, for 10 minutes. Add apple juice and cranberries; bring to boil. Dissolve cornstarch in 1 tbsp (15 mL) water; add to pan and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until thickened. Set aside; keep warm.

Meanwhile, in bowl, whisk together all-purpose and whole wheat flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. In separate bowl, whisk together eggs, buttermilk and butter; pour over flour mixture and stir just until combined.

Heat waffle iron; brush lightly with some of the oil. Pour in 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the batter for each waffle, spreading to edges; close lid and cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until steam stops and waffle is crisp and golden. Serve warm with topping.

Tips: Wrap any leftover waffles individually in plastic wrap and freeze for up to 3 months; reheat in toaster.

To make pancakes instead: Heat skillet over medium heat; brush with oil. Pour in 1/4 cup (50 mL) batter for each pancake; cook for 3 minutes or until bubbles break on top but do not fill in. Turn and cook for 1 minute longer.
