Patriotic Waffle

Patriotic Waffle

Happy Fourth of July to you…some people might be grilling; some lifeguards might be working…there is probably some fourth of July road race in your area (or maybe Patriotic aerobics…)

As for me, I’m doing a road race and traveling.

Living the dream.

I always thought it would be cool to make a Fourth of July Patriotic Waffle.  I’ve made other interesting waffles…I didn’t have any criteria for it, just that the Patriotic Waffle should be red, white and blue.   I even brainstormed of various red, white and blue foods I could use.  White ended up being hardest, but yogurt made that easy.


Patriotic Waffle Ingredients (i.e., Blueberry Pomegranate Waffle): 

2/3 cup flour (all-purpose flour, wheat flour…)

¾ cup pomegranate juice (other red ideas included: cranberry, strawberry, and cherry)

1 tablespoon oil

1 tsp baking powder

1 cup blueberries

Patriotic Waffle Recipe:

  1. Preheat and heat up your waffle maker
  2. Mix all dry ingredients  in a large mixing bowl
  3. Add wet ingredients (including pomegranate juice) together and mix in a separate mixing medium bowl.
  4. Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.
  5. Pour waffle batter into your hot waffle iron and cook until golden red.
  6. After cooked, put on a plate and add a layer of melted butter, maple syrup, and greek yogurt.

So yes, if you wanted to impress your friends with a patriotic waffle (or pancakes) then you should go this route.  Impress your friends with a 4th of July, American Flag waffles, Patriotic Waffle!

If you want to go a slightly more fun route for your Patriotic Waffles add whipped cream.


Question for you: 

Have you ever made a Patriotic waffle? How was your Fourth of July? 


  1. Is there anything more patriotic than a red, white, and blue waffle? Probably not. You should run for president, or at the least, congress ;). I hear American waffles make for a great platform.

    Hope your race goes well!

  2. We’re keeping it pretty low key today and it’s just a day where everyone is off from work and most likely grilling will occur later. I got patriotic and made a red, white, and blue trifle! Look at me go! Have a great race today and a happy July 4th!

  3. Just ran a Firecracker 5000 with my Mom and kids. Was a great time, and a fun race. Now to the beach for a swim and some delicious steak and ribs for dinner. Happy Independence Day!

  4. Just a regular day for us Canadians, so I’m… uh… working 🙂 And another idea for patriotic waffles… I wonder if you could split the batter in half, add red to one and blue to the other, and then make one waffle that’s half red and half blue.

  5. Happy 4th! I read up on the history of the Star-Spangled Banner this morning and wrote a post, what better way to start the holiday than with some American history on the day!

    I’m spending the day barbecuing with family. I’ve also been in a funk running wise – I’m going to go on a run on my favorite trail (which I haven’t done in a while) and just enjoy running for what it is. I’m not going to pay attention to pace or time it takes me – I definitely could use one of those days!

  6. “Ultimate blogger technique”–love it! And I will totally be dropping that phrase in the near future. Have a great holiday! I did a local yokel 5-K this morning, and my grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins are coming over in a bit to BBQ and watch fireworks. And make s’mores, obviously. 🙂

  7. OK I love that you used juice for the red instead of just food coloring! this is awesome and if I don’t say one of your most creative to date! Happy birthday America and yay for you getting to see Tim today!!!

  8. This is pretty cool! I love your creation and it definitely looks patriotic. I also hope your road race went well. I ran a 20-miler (The Pointless 12 Hour Ultra race in town… I just ran 20 and stopped, no ultra). Have fun seeing Tim!

  9. Thankfully I’ve switched from the days of lifeguarding to the days of sitting poolside. YAY! Love the addition of pomegranate juice, and I am sad I can’t see you this weekend 🙁 Enjoy Chambersburg!

  10. I did my first open water swim, figuring I should at least have one before my upcoming triathlon. That is so much more tiring than running…
