DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 fahrenheit. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with papers.
  • Combine the ground flax and water in a measuring cup, and whisk vigorously for about 2 minutes. Let this stand while you assemble the other ingredients. It will have become quite thick and gooey, and this is probably the very best egg substitute I know for vegan baked goods.
  • Sift together the flours, sugar, baking power and soda in a large bowl. Add the wet ingredients (all but pom seeds), and mix till just moistened; as usual, over-mixing will lead to heavy muffins. Finally, fold in the pomegranate seeds, reserving a few for the muffin tops.
  • Divide the batter equally in the prepared cups. Sprinkle five or six seeds on the top of each muffin, and pop 'em in the oven. 20-25 minutes should do it.
  • Remove, toothpick-test, let cool on a rack, and enjoy warm with tea!
