Dried Cranberry Pecan Lime Waffles

Dried Cranberry Pecan Lime Waffles

Dried Cranberry Pecan Lime Waffles were created on February 20th which was the 10th day of my current 12 day #wafflestreak.  Yes, #wafflestreak is a hashtag I use that was created by FatFluential and one that I take great pride in.  Not all the waffles in the streak are breakfast or brunch.  They aren’t always sweet, but can sometimes be savory or made from vegetables.  The waffles may also be come in the form of polenta as seen here and here.

Yesterday I posted my Chocolate Pistachio recipe and when I woke up this morning I had a request on Instagramfor the Dried Cranbarry Pecan Lime Waffles.  Of course, I cannot just post the recipe for the pecan lime waffles without giving you some background on how the recipe came to be.  If you look at the name of these waffles you may have noticed a tie to Thanksgiving and that is essentially where the inspiration came from.

I was sitting at my laptop and thinking of how I had created waffles from desserts, such as these Gingerbread waffles or from the combination of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.  One of my favorite desserts has always been pecan pie but it is just nothing but sugar and a crust.  The day that pecan pie shows up in my house is on Thanksgiving which has always been my favorite holiday and the idea of dried cranberry pecan lime waffles was created.

No more verbiage from me, so here is the recipe for the pecan lime waffles (typing dried cranberry……was too much!)

Dried Cranberry Pecan Lime Waffles Recipe

Ingredients: 1/2c Garbanzo Bean Flour, 1 egg, 1/2c Coconut Milk, Juice of small lime, zest of 1 lime, 1 Tbsp dried cranberries, 1 oz pecans (chopped)

Servings: 1

Nutritional Information: 532 calories, 46g Carbohydrates, 3og Fat, 21g Protein

Directions:

  1. Chop pecans or place in a food storage bag cover with a towel and mash with a rolling pin, can or meat tenderizer.  Set aside.
  2. Zest the lime into a bowl then cut in half to prepare for extracting the lime juice.
  3. In same bowl combine flour, egg, lime juice and coconut milk.  Whisk until well combined.
  4. Add pecans, lime zest and cranberries to batter and mix well to combine.
  5. Pre-heat your waffle iron per manufacturer’s directions.
  6. Spoon batter onto iron and once all the steam is released then open up the waffle iron and serve with fruit.

Notes:

  • The texture of the batter I create will make the waffles crunchy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside.
  • Serve with maple syrup to truly provide the pecan pie taste.
  • If you are not a fan of lime you can leave it out but it adds a terrific refreshing citrus taste.
