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.

Healthy Spelt Waffles |

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.

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

    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!

    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

    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!

    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!!

    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?;)

  15. Victoria @ Mission: Foodposted January 31, 2011 at 9:04 am Reply

    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 :)

  23. Stellaposted January 31, 2011 at 1:55 pm Reply

    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!

  24. Trishposted January 31, 2011 at 3:07 pm Reply

    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!

    First off, congrats on your gig :) These waffles sound delicious.. I love healthy things in the morning. It’s a good thing I’m getting married this year because a waffle iron has been on the list for a looong time!

    I’m looking forward to watching the video class! We always make our waffles out of whole wheat flour, but have never tried spelt flour. Bookmarking and trying this!

    I love spelt – it does make the best waffles and pancakes! My husband will only eat pancakes when they’re made out of spelt, and I think he would love these waffles – they look delicious!

    Cool new teaching thing, Sommer! It’s amazing what technology is doing for everyday folks! As for your spelt waffles, these look wonderful! I love the idea of dipping the waffle bites instead of smothering them under all the butter and maple syrup … and I love the side tidbits of healthy nuts! Kudos all around!~

    Those waffles look gorgeous! I’ve been wanting to make some for a while now, but I had never heard of using spelt flour. What a great idea! Any excuse to pour even more maple syrup on my waffles is good with me! :D

    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.

  52. marthaposted January 13, 2013 at 11:43 am Reply

    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 :)

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