Vegan Spelt Waffles (With Chocolate Chip)

Want to make the best vegan waffles ever? I’ve got you covered.

These babies are nice and crispy on the outside, but soft and fluffy on the inside. Plus, they’re super easy to whip up with stuff you probably already have in your pantry.

I’m not kidding when I say these are the best vegan waffles I’ve ever had. They’ve got that perfect waffle texture – crispy exterior, fluffy interior. And the best part? You only need one main bowl, and they’re a cinch to make.

Don’t worry if you don’t have all the exact ingredients. I’ve left plenty of room for substitutions. Make ’em fresh for Sunday brunch, or freeze a batch to pop in the toaster for a quick breakfast.

You can enjoy them as is, top them with fresh fruit, or drizzle them with maple syrup for a more indulgent treat.

They’re also great for meal prep – make a big batch on the weekend and reheat them throughout the week for a quick breakfast.

Don’t let the “vegan” label fool you. These waffles are so tasty that even non-vegans will love them.

Why you will love this Vegan Spelt Waffles (With Chocolate Chip) recipe

You’ll love these waffles for their unique flavor and texture. The spelt flour gives them a nutty taste that pairs perfectly with the chocolate chips.

They’re a healthier alternative to traditional waffles. Spelt flour is more nutritious than regular wheat flour, and the recipe is completely plant-based.

These waffles are easy to make. You can whip up the batter in just a few minutes, making them perfect for busy mornings or lazy weekend brunches.


Don’t overmix the batter. Stir until just combined to ensure light and fluffy waffles.

Preheat your waffle iron well before cooking. This helps create that perfect crispy exterior.

If you’re not serving the waffles immediately, keep them warm in a low oven. This prevents them from getting soggy.

The Ingredients

Spelt Flour

Spelt flour is the base of these waffles. It has a slightly nutty flavor and is more nutritious than regular wheat flour. It’s also easier to digest for some people.

Plant-based Milk

Any non-dairy milk works here. It adds moisture to the batter and helps create a light texture. I prefer almond or oat milk for their neutral flavors.

Vegan Chocolate Chips

These add bursts of sweetness throughout the waffles. Make sure to use dairy-free chocolate chips to keep the recipe vegan.

Maple Syrup

This natural sweetener adds flavor and helps the waffles brown nicely. It also keeps the recipe refined sugar-free.
