Vegan Spelt Waffles

By Monday, August 10, 2015 , , ,


You can safely say I have become a spelt addict. I'm using it now in place of gluten free flours and I'm loving how much more elastic it is and how much less crumbly it is! It makes life a lot easier for sure.

This is essentially a regular vegan waffle recipe but using spelt instead of wheat flour, plus of course mashed banana and vanilla extract added, in true superfoodsiobhan style. They're good for both breakfast or dessert, they're so simple and so easy to jazz up also with melted chocolate and caramelised banana.

Waffles don't have to be unhealthy, there really isn't anything bad about these. Just flour, almond milk and some banana, it's simple and nutritious and leaves you a blank canvas to decorate to your heart's content.

I use this waffle maker from Cusinart which I like as it's sturdy, has a clear light indicating when it's ready to use and also the plates are removable to make it easy to clean.

Makes 2 waffles

You will need:

1/2 cup spelt flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 ripe banana
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup almond milk

Cut the banana in half, then mash one half and set the other aside. Combine the mashed banana with all the other ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well until smooth.

Heat the waffle maker and spread a little coconut oil on the plates to prevent the waffles from sticking. When the heat indicator light comes on, pour the batter into the waffle maker, close and allow to cook. When the heat indicator light comes back on to say it has reached the right temperature, the waffles are ready,

Serve topped with lots of fresh fruit and your choice of soy yoghurt, coconut yoghurt, nut butters etc.

  2. Having similar issues as you used to have I am trying to find out if eating gluten free will help for me the upcoming time. However, I saw you use a lot of spelt flour and when I research it online it is stated that it does have gluten. Do you use a special brand or do you not have any problems when using spelt flour?
