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.

These simple spelt waffles are light, airy and crisp. The perfect platform for pure maple syrup. Plus the spelt offers a wondrously nutty essence.


  • 2 1/4 cups spelt flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk (any variety)
  • 3/4 cup seltzer water
  • 1/4 cup almond oil


  1. Preheat your waffle iron until it’s scorching hot. Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Then whisk in all the wet ingredients until smooth.
  2. Scoop the batter onto the waffle iron. Fill until close to the edges, but not all the way to the edges. Close and cook for 2-5 minutes, then repeat. *Try adding chopped almonds or pecans to the batter.

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

    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 :)

    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.
