Sometimes I can’t resist a naughty breakfast like brownie belgiam waffles, or caramel apple cinnamon rolls.

Then I straighten my halo and take a recipe the other direction. When I’m really on my A-game, no one even notices!

These golden spelt waffles are a healthy recipe my family adores.

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.

Surprisingly, these are my families favorite waffles. They do not 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 spelt waffles on Saturday morning, without a single ounce of guilt, and still have dessert Saturday night!

Sounds like a winner to me.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is spelt flour?

Spelt flour is a whole grain flour that has more nutritional value than regular all-purpose flour. It is easy to digest and great to use in baking!

Can I substitute whole wheat flour or all-purpose flour for the spelt flour?

Definitely! If you don’t have spelt flour on hand, you can use a simple whole wheat flour or all-purpose flour in this easy waffles recipe.

How should I serve spelt waffles?

Serve your spelt flour waffles with anything you would serve with regular waffles! Butter, maple syrup and whipped cream is a great place to start. For some added nutrition, throw on some berries or a sliced banana!

Can I freeze waffles?

If you have leftover waffles that you would like to freeze, place them in a freezer safe container and store in the freezer for up to 3 months. If you don’t want the waffles to stick together, you can place a piece of parchment paper in between each one, or freeze them on a baking sheet for 2-3 hours before transferring to a bag or container. To reheat, pop them in the toaster or warm them up in the oven until heated through!

  1. They work out deliciously every time!

  2. These turned out amazing. I used olive oil instead of almond oil. Also I added 1 Tbsp of chia seeds with an extra Tbsp of milk and 1 Tbsp of molasses. :)

  3. Great recipe! My family loved these. I didnt have almond oil so used sunflower and also had to use egg replacer but they still turned out really well. I was told they were the best ever! Thanks so much for the recipe, I never would have thought of using soda water.

  4. Perfect waffles. Thank you! 

  5. My kids loved them! So happy for a healthy breakfast that doesn’t seem like it LOL

  6. Made these this morning with half spelt flour and half oat flour, which is my default baking mix. Excellent recipe.

  9. Loving these waffles! Congrats on your new opportunity Sommer!!

  10. Sommer – thank you for this amazing and healthy waffle recipe! It’s becoming a Sunday morning standard in our home. One thing we tried this morning is whipping the egg whites and folding them in right before we cook the waffles – it makes them even lighter and crispier. Thanks again :)

  11. I’m standing here making these as I type this and realized I forgot the water, so mine are super thick and I only managed to get 6 out of the batch, so I will have to try this again maybe in the evening instead of this early in the morning lol. Nothing syrup won’t fix though.

  12. Awesome Waffles! Absolutely perfect! Crispy on the outside, soft & light on the inside. We loved ’em. I’ve been searching for a great spelt recipe like this for a long time. Happy to have found your website. Can’t wait to see what I will find next. Thanks!

  13. So, we just ate these for dinner with eggs and so forth, and let me say, they are amazing!!! I love the full spelt flour flavor and the texture was soft and delicious. I pretty much know that if I cook off your site, I will not be disappointed! ( :

  14. Congrats! you will be great with the cooking classes- waffles look amazing :)

  38. I’ve wanted to cook with spelt for some time now. I’m glad you shared your successful recipe…sounds delish! Congrats on your online cooking classes. Sounds wonderful!

  39. Yum, Sommer! I love whole grain spelt flour. I think a lot of people are starting to take to it too, since the gluten in it is more easily digested. Plus, who wouldn’t want to eat some waffles that look this good?! Oh, and your photos look really wonderful lately…love that!

  40. Delicious! I love the spelt flour.

  44. The waffles are indeed very fluffy and the news for the video are very exciting. Congratulations. If the time allows it I will try to connect.

  45. I’m so happy to hear that you are going to be teaching a class on the Motherhood! How exciting. And I just love this recipe you shared with me today. I am craving waffles badly now! Thank you for sharing, my friend!

  46. Those waffles looks so wholesome. Love it! Congrats on your new venture – sounds like a blast!

  47. I’ve never used spelt flour, but I’m definitely up for making guilty foods less guilty, and yet taste awesome! These look like the perfect brunch :)

  48. Congrats on the cooking class online!! These waffles look pretty darn good for being so (ahem)healthy;) Maybe a little Nutella drizzle to make them a little less healthy?;)

  49. Congrats!

  50. Congratulations!! Such a great idea to use spelt flour, looks perfect!

  51. Congratulations!! I bet these waffles are good, though at first glance I always pick the naughtier recipe :) But if you say they’re delish, then I’m sure they’re delish! Besides, there’s always maple syrup!!

  52. Oh la la! I bet the seltzer makes these so airy and amazing!

  53. Congrats!!
    Those waffles look wonderful.

  54. The online class is such a cool news! Date bookmarked :) and recipe too. I have never baked with spelt flour and it’s about time I try it out. Thanks for the recipe

  55. What a thick, lovely waffle. Congrats on the class – looks awesome!

  56. The spelt Waffles look crisp and delicious! Healthy & good idea to use spelt instead of refined flour.

  57. Exciting news about your teaching gig, congratulations! Isn’t it nice to fool people into believing you’re all behaving and being nice with your food? Such a great idea to use spelt, I like using the alternative flours since they have so much extra flavour.

    By the way, the stock was sensational because my husband made it and he has the golden touch with stock. He reduced it down to a fifth of its original state and the flavour was perfectly rich without being oversalty and the fat content was perfect!

  58. congratulations on your teaching lessons, Sommer.
    the waffles look so good, love the nutty flavor of the spelt flour.
    thanks for sharing, hope you’ll have a wonderful Monday

  59. I’ve never baked with spelt flour before. These look so light and crispy, I’m guessing the seltzer water is one of the secrets. Can’t wait for the cooking class!

  60. I love spelt bread – but have not tried to make anything with spelt flour… looking forward to trying this!!

  61. lovely waffles and congrats so excited for you
