Oh how I love thee, Cranberry Pomegranate Waffles, let me count the ways!

This amazing creation came together from a few different sources. I first had the idea to combine the two fall fruits into mini pies, then I got hungry for breakfast and my pies almost became pancakes, then I saw my belgium waffle maker sitting in the corner of a cabinet collecting dust, and that’s how my pancakes became waffles!

And here it is, in all it’s glory, the waffle maker I purchased while living in the dorms at San Diego State.  Yes, I owned a waffle maker in the dorms.  Yes,  I was the only person in the dorms with a waffle iron. Yes, I used to make chocolate chip waffles in the dorms and you could smell them all the way at the other end of the floor.  I had college kids coming out of the woodwork to get in on those chocolate chip waffles!

Pretty sure I was breaking all kinds of rules by having a waffle maker in my dorm room, but those chocolate chip waffles were so worth it! What can I say?  I like living on the edge 😉

These would be perfect to make on Thanksgiving or Christmas morning. You can make as much batter as you need for 4 or 20 and let people make their own waffles as they arrive (or awake!)

The fruit in these waffles is very tart, so I dusted them with cinnamon and powdered sugar to add some sweetness!

I threw some extra cranberries on top for color, totally optional, but looks very pretty 🙂
