Pomegranate Blueberry Waffles

Thursday, September 2, 2010

A while back, I received a case of POM Wonderful Pomegranate juice in the mail.  Within a couple days, I made Pomegranate & Rhubarb Sauce.  It was delicious and, I was a bit surprised that the tart flavors blended so well.  And that inspired me to try pomegranate and blueberry.  I started with my favorite fluffy pancake recipe and used most of the rest of my juice playing and testing.  The result was mildly pomegranate, very berry and wonderful warm color.

Pomegranate & Blueberry Waffles

Pomegranate & Blueberry Waffles
Wet Ingredients:
1 cup pomegranate juice
2/3 cups soy milk (vanilla is good too)
2 Tbs cider vinegar
2 Tbs agave syrup
3 Tbs vegetable oil
2 Tbs ground flaxseed
1 tsp vanilla extract
Dry Ingredients:
1 1/3 cup flour
3 Tbs chickpea flour
1 Tbs baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

1 cup frozen blackberries

Start heating the waffle iron.  Pour together the wet ingredients, stirring to combine the flax seed.  Set aside for a couple of minutes.  In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients (except the blueberries).  Just before you are ready to start cooking, pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir, just enough to combine.  Take the blueberries out of the freezer and fold into the batter.  If the batter is too thin, or if it thins over time (which will happen as the blueberries thaw, stir in a little more flour.

For 8 inch waffles, pour about half a cup of batter into the iron, enough to generously cover 2/3 of the iron.  Cook according to you waffle iron's directions.  Makes about 5 8" waffles.
