Spelt Waffles Made With Fresh Milled Flour – Super Easy!

We made these Super Easy Spelt Waffles Made With Fresh Milled Flour for Christmas Morning! I was gifted a Waffle maker this year, and it sure was fun for the whole family. So, we experimented with different Fresh Milled Flours, and we noticed some pretty big differences! But, I fell in love with waffles all over again! Just look how fresh and delicious these look!

The Best Waffle Maker!

This is the BEST Waffle Maker I have ever used! I am thrilled this is the one I received as a gift. It makes 4 smaller round waffles at a time, which allows more people to eat at a time, instead of making waffles one at a time! And you all know that I don’t have room in my RV for multiple waffle makers! So, this particular waffle model also has two spots to make a long pancake which was fun for Kodie, my teen son! To sum up, we had great family fun making these waffles together, experimenting with different fruits, flavors, and grains!

What Fresh Milled Flour Is Best For Waffles?

The general consensus is that Spelt Flour made the BEST tasting waffles. Spelt brings a nutty flavor, and just rounds the whole waffle flavor, plain or with add-ins. However, if you like a really soft waffles, soft white wheat was a runner up in our family. The flavor was still delicious, and it was a favorite with Hayli, my teen daughter.

Here is one of each! The waffle(closest) had a softer texture. Beautiful fresh milled Soft White Wheat with Fresh Blueberries inside.

The waffle(further away), is the waffle made with Spelt with fresh strawberries inside. You can see a slight difference in color and texture.

What Is Spelt, And Is It Good For You?

Firstly, spelt is considered an ancient grain, and is a member of the wheat family. It has a softer texture when milled into flour, creating a lighter airier flour. And, spelt has a sweet, nutty flavor. Secondly, Yes! Spelt is very good for you! Especially fresh milled or whole spelt. Spelt can be ground into flour, or rolled like Oats, either way, when you are eating the whole Spelt berry/kernel you are getting all the nutrients! Lastly, Spelt packs a nice energy boost, making a great start to any day!

  2. Preheat Waffle Maker
  3. Add Flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in one bowl.

  5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix just until incorporated.
  6. Next, spray waffle maker with oil, and pour about 1/4 cup of batter into each waffle well (my waffle maker is a mini waffle maker that makes 4 -3.5 inch waffles at a time – So, you may need to adjust this amount for your waffle maker)
  7. Close the lid, and cook for about 5-7 minutes. They should look golden brown once cooked. (cook times may also vary with different waffle makers- refer to your waffle maker instructions.)

Notes

This recipe can be doubled for more waffles, and if you have extras – they freeze really well! 
This recipe makes amazing pancakes as well! I like to use soft white wheat for pancakes.
You can sub Kamut, Einkorn, soft wheat, or a mix of hard wheat with any of them in this recipe! 
You can make this recipe with commercial white flour, but you may need to change the flour ratio (1 cup white all-purpose flour should work well for this recipe.)

    I finally got a big bag of (good) spelt berries after having a bad experience with some that tasted of mold (100 lb worth that I couldn’t even use). So I was very excited to use these ones for something. This was an easy recipe to make and tasted great! I love finding recipes that are 100% spelt because I really want to start using more of it while cooking for my family.

    1. Oh no, I am sorry to hear that your first batch was bad. I am happy to hear you enjoyed this recipe! We love these waffles too! Thanks so much!

    These were fantastic! I used some homemade kefir instead of milk and allowed them to sit for 7-8ish hours (hopefully helped with the physic acid). Great turn out! Looking forward to enjoying them again for breakfast tomorrow 🙂
