He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart;
he gently leads those that have young

{Blueberry Waffles with Lemon Icing}

I found this recipe at Vegan Yum Yum. Blueberry and Lemon just may be my favorite combination. With a couple of minor adjustments {for personal prefrence} it's rather yummy. Hubs worried they'd be "no bueno" when he heard the word "vegan" but after assuring him that I made some adjustments, he tried and liked them a lot.
It's a touch of sweet and sour for breakfast. My favorite!

What You'll Need:
2 Cups All Purpose Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
3 Tbs Sugar
2 cups kefir {can be subbed with 2/3 c plain yogurt and 1 1/3 c milk}
5 Tbs Water
1/3 Cup Oil
1 Cup Fresh Blueberries (*see note about using frozen)
Spray Oil for the waffle iron

What To Do:
Preheat your waffle iron.
Mix all the dry ingredients together well with a whisk. In another bowl, whisk the wet ingredients together. Combine wet and dry, then gently fold in berries.
Spray your waffle iron with a little bit of oil and make a test waffle. In my waffle maker, 1/2 cup of batter is perfect for a single waffle, and they cook for 10 minutes. Follow the instructions or your preferred directions for your waffle maker. This recipe makes 10 waffles if each waffle uses 1/2 cup of batter.

*If using frozen blueberries, keep them in the freezer until the last second. Reserve 1-2 Tbs of your dry mixture. When you’re ready to add the blueberries, take them out of the freezer, measure them and mix them with the reserved dry mixture. Then fold them into your mixed batter in NO MORE than three (3!!) folds. This will prevent your batter from turning a gray-purple color.

Lemon Icing
What You'll Need:
1 c powdered sugar
1 t lemon juice
zest of 1/2 lemon
2-4 T milk

What To Do:
Mix in a blender until smooth. You can do it without a blender if you feel like sifting your powdered sugar to make sure there are no lumps.
