Sometimes, at breakfast time, you just want waffles – and there's nothing wrong with that. But if you're after a waffle that's vegan, perfectly crisp and packed full of nutrients, you're likely to struggle to find what you're looking for in the ready-made aisle. And that's where this wholegrain spelt flour flaxseed waffles recipe from Linwoods comes in...

Ready in a snap, made with minimal ingredients, and high in Omega-3, protein and fibre, these waffles are a cut above your average breakfast items. Pile them high with berries and yoghurt, and start your day feeling extra smug.

Wholegrain spelt flour flaxseed waffles

Vegan, fibre-rich waffles with a perfect crispy crunch

Prep time5min
Cook time10min
Total time15min


  • 90g wholegrain spelt flour
  • 1 tbsp Linwoods Milled Flaxseed
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • Β½-1 tbsp honey or maple syrup
  • 125ml milk of choice (non-dairy, if preferred)


  1. Preheat your waffle iron – this is key.
  2. Whisk together all ingredients in a bowl or jug. Set to one side for 5 minutes (it will be quite a thick batter).
  3. Grease your waffle iron with spray oil and pour the batter in, spreading a little so it reaches the edges. Be sure not to overfill the waffle iron.
  4. Cook for 8-10 minutes (waffle irons vary, and timings also depend on the amount of batter you use per waffle). If you like your waffles crispy, leave them a little longer.
  5. Serve topped with berries, honey or maple syrup, and a dollop of your favourite yogurt or ice cream (if you’re feeling that way inclined).

Recipe Notes

You can make your waffles in advance in batches, then freeze and reheat them in an oven or air fryer to crisp them back up.

  • Now spelt flour ummm. The taste is awesome πŸ‘Œ apparently it's of Roman origin. If I'm in peacehaven I drop in to a small local bakery which makes spelt rolls and bread. Had to try it after the baker told me. Great with bacon πŸ‘
