Yesterday I shared the recipe for Pomegranate Breakfast in a Jar and I promised to share the details of what I did the with the rest of the Pomegranate seeds from the 2 Pomegranates I bought. Well, I used the bulk of the Pomegranate Seeds for these yummy Pomegranate Muffins and the rest I just enjoyed mixed through a bowl of yoghurt after being inspired by how yummy the Breakfast in a Jar was.
As I mentioned yesterday, I've never cooked with Pomegranates before and found the tutorial I found on Pinterest to be of great help. So, having not cooked with them, also meant the boys had never eaten Pomegranate before. I was a tiny bit worried because Mr 3 is fussy so I didn't know how he'd react to the new food and I wasn't sure how Mr (almost) 2 would handle the tiny seeds.
I shouldn't have worried - Mr 3 LOVED these muffins and enjoyed the taste and texture of the seeds and since the seeds were cooked in the muffins, they were soft enough for Mr (almost) 2 to handle.
The Pomegranate Muffins are really easy to prepare, you simply mix the wet ingredients together, and in a separate bowl mix the dry ingredients. Then you just mix the two together and fold through the pomegranate seeds. I love the contrasting colors of the bright pomegranate seeds sitting on the muffin batter.
1 and 1/2 Cups Unbleached Plain Flour
1 Cup Rolled Oats
1/3 Cup Brown Sugar (Or Rapadura/Sucanat)
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
pinch of salt
1/3 Cup Apple Sauce
1/2 Cup Milk
1/2 Cup Pomegranate Seeds
1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F and line a 12 hole muffin tin with Muffin Liners.
2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, bicarb and salt until well combined.
3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, applesauce and milk.
4. Pour the egg mixture over the flour mixture and stir until just combined. Briefly fold through the pomegranate seeds.
5. Divide the mixture between the prepared muffin tin and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until firm and golden.

Having enjoyed both this recipe and the yummy Breakfast in a Jar has inspired me to pick up some more Pomegranates next time I see them.
I'd love you to share how you enjoy this nutritious fruit, to give me (and the other yummy readers) some more Pomegranate Recipe Ideas!
