Spelt Flour Recipes

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 family’s 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.

Spelt Flour Waffles Tips & Tricks

  • Keep your waffles warm while making them by heating the oven to 200 F and placing the cooked waffles on a baking sheet lined with a wire rack. That way they will all stay warm until you are ready to serve them!
  • Serve these healthy spelt waffles with your favorite waffle toppings like whipped cream, maple syrup, fruit or nut butters! Or go crazy and make a homemade chicken and waffles!
  • Make sure to preheat the waffle iron and spray with nonstick spray!

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!
