Simple Spelt Waffles (and EXCITING News!)
Sometimes I like to make really naughty dishes like The Quintessential Chocolate Cake or Apple Cider Cinna-Knots. Other times I like to make naughty dishes even NAUGHTIER by dipping them in chocolate or covering them with cream…
Then I straighten my halo and take a recipe the other direction. And when I’m really on my A-game, no one even notices!
These healthy spelt waffles are divine! They are light, airy and crisp. The perfect platform for pure maple syrup. Plus the spelt offers a wondrously nutty essence, that you just don’t get with plain old flour. The beauty is, these are my families favorite waffles. They do nott miss the white-processed flour. They do not miss the handful of white sugar; and they do not miss the additional 1/4 cup of oil that I took out!
So you can eat your crispy waffles on Saturday morning, without a single ounce of guilt, and still have dessert Saturday night!
