We are getting ready for back to school, and these Spelt Toaster Waffles are the perfect thing to stock your freezer with for those busy mornings!
Mornings with or without kids can be a little bit chaotic, and breakfast is one of those meals that so easily gets skipped. For days when you’ve only got a few minutes, these toaster waffles are a must! They’re healthier than store bought ones and in my opinion, much more delicious. We doctored up our waffles with some fresh berries, Greek yogurt, and a touch of maple syrup! If berries aren’t quite in season you can make a simple syrup by using frozen berries and microwaving them with a little bit of maple syrup. It makes for such a quick and easy sauce that the kids will love.
These waffles were first created for the Fraîche at Home Meal Plan but were taken out in favour of a savoury recipe and we thought it was about time to share them with you! What makes a toaster waffle so great is that they get the perfect amount of crisp in the toaster. Making them great to sit down and eat or take on the go. This makes a big batch so turn on the music and get to waffle-ing!
What is Spelt Flour?
Spelt flour is an ancient grain that’s less refined, and thus healthier, than an all-purpose flour! Since it’s in a less refined state, it’s higher in fibre than your typical white flour. It’s a great ingredient here as the fibre helps lower blood-sugar spikes making it a great ingredient for breakfast!
