These healthy waffles are crispy on the outside and light fluffy on the inside. They are a regular weekend breakfast or brunch at our house.
We love topping them with fresh berries, honey and coconut yoghurt. I also top my healthy waffles with for extra nutrients to support hormone health.
To make these healthy waffles you will need a few staple ingredients like eggs, milk, flour and a waffle maker.
I have used a few tricks to make the waffles fluffy including beating the egg whites and cornstarch to give them the extra crisp. I love using spelt flour as it is an ancient grain which is lower in gluten and rapadura sugar rather than refined white sugar. You could make these waffles completely gluten free by using buckwheat flour.
My favorite way to serve waffles is with fresh fruit and honey or maple syrup. We often also make a chocolate sauce blending dates, cacao and coconut oil.
A few other healthy topping ideas:
- cacao chips
- fried banana
- nut butter
- coconut yoghurt
- flaked almonds
I have found the best way to reheat the waffles is in the toaster, this makes them nice and crispy again!
Healthy Waffle Recipe
2 cups spelt flour
½ cup cornstarch
1 tablespoon baking powder
3 tablespoons rapadura sugar
1/2 cup butter or ghee, melted
2 cups milk of choice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat your waffle maker, coat with butter to ensure waffle batter does not stick.
In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients including flour, cornstarch, baking powder, rapadura sugar and salt.
In another bowl, add egg whites and beat with electric mixer until stiff peaks form.
Add egg yolks, melted butter, milk and vanilla extract to the bowl with the flour mix, combine well and then fold in the egg whites with a spatula.
To cook the waffles pour batter onto the hot waffle maker and cook according to manufacturer's instructions.
Serve with your favourite toppings. Enjoy!
