Wholesome Spelt Waffles

"These spelt waffles are divine! 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. The beauty is, these are my families favorite waffles. They don’t miss the white-processed flour. They don’t miss the handful of white sugar; and they don’t miss the additional 1/4 cup of oil that I took out! So you can eat your waffles on Saturday morning, without an ounce of guilt, and still have dessert Saturday night!"

    These were delicious. I used almond milk with success.

    These were excellent! I love how the seltzer water made them light and crisp! I got 8 waffles using a belgian waffle maker.

    We have enjoyed these since the first time my wife made them. FANTASTIC. We, and I mean, me, are all about trying something new, and with seltzer water as an ingredient....well, that's definitely not what I grew up with. The added fluffy-ness and crispy outside, light as air waffle are an excellent hit with this family.<br/><br/>We folded them like tacos and stuffed with whipped cream and sprinkled cinnamon over the top.

    Thanks for posting! These are great - very light. I did add a couple tablespoons of sugar and a teaspoon or two of vanilla, just my personal preferences. In my parents old 4-square waffle iron I actually got 20 4-in square waffles, but that's great since I was making them to freeze as toaster waffles for my toddler, who considers waffles with honey quite a delicacy. :)

    These were great! Need to add a bit more salt. I added rice milk instead of cows milk. The seltzer made the waffles airy and fluffy.
