Maple Walnut Spelt Waffles

There is one challenge for me, though, and it’s kind of a mighty one. The kitchen, while adorable with its repurposed icebox as a cupboard and it’s exposed brick pillar, is all on one fuse, which means Kettle+Microwave= No Power At All for Anyone Sorry, Stop Trying to Make Coffee and Oatmeal at the Same Time, Ain’t Gonna Happen. The other, and this is the biggie, is that there is no stove, no oven. What there is, is a hotplate and a convection microwave.

The convection microwave, I’ll admit, is a bit amazing. It’s too small to fit a cookie sheet, but it’s amazing for baking cakes because it heats so evenly (I baked this puppy in it). So now that I spend my days slaving over a hotplate and micro, I have crowned myself Queen of the Small Appliances – I’m leaning into it.Well, this has been a lot of preamble to say, dust off your waffle iron. Become your own small appliance master. It feels good.

This recipe for Maple Walnut Spelt Waffles is about as easy as it gets (chopping the walnuts is the most tedious bit, and you could easily and cheaply buy them pre-chopped). The walnuts toast themselves in the waffle iron like magic, and the ground flax doesn’t even need to be presoaked in water to do it’s job, like many flax eggs do. It also has a bunch of my favourite ingredients: spelt flour, maple syrup, almond flour, and grapeseed oil. All amazing whole foods, all good things to put in your body on a Sunday morning to get ready for a day of winter house puttering.

  • Using some extra grapeseed oil, grease your waffle iron and pre-heat.

  • In another large bowl, whisk wet ingredients. Add in dry ingredients and mix just until there is no dry flour remaining.
