A Winter Favorite

These nourishing gingerbread waffles are delicious on Christmas morning or any winter day!  One bite of these perfectly spiced and fluffy waffles and you will be happy. In addition, it’s hard to beat the aroma that will infuse your home as these waffles cook.

Nourishing and Wholesome

Made with whole-grain sprouted Spelt flour, they provide a nice balance of fiber, protein, and fat. When I searched the web for existing gingerbread waffle recipes, they all had a lot of added sugar. This recipe has just 3 tablespoons of added sugar in the form of molasses and maple syrup. The molasses even provides some iron. (You could use all molasses but I prefer them with 1 tablespoon of molasses and 2 tablespoons of maple syrup. Experiment with what you prefer!)

Waffle Maker Note

You can use any kind of waffle maker for this recipe. I used to make them in my Belgian waffle maker, but since that broke I only have my nordic heart-shaped waffle maker. Fortunately, they come out great in either form!
