Spelt Waffles with Tropical Fruit


This very low fat, low sugar waffle recipe is about as basic as it gets! You can’t find another vegan waffle recipe that is THIS EASY. You just can’t! A combination of spelt, applesauce and oat milk makes these pretty dang healthy, which is good because this gives you need a reason to eat more coconut whipped cream.

Spelt Waffles

Makes 2 large waffles

  • 1 cup spelt flour
  • 2 tsp organic cane sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup oat or almond milk
  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce


Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a bowl. Add the milk and applesauce and stir to combine. There will be lumps! Make sure not to over mix. Pour in your heated waffle iron and serve.

Caramelized Tropical Fruit

  • 1 tbl coconut or canola oil
  • 1 banana, cut into ½” slices
  • 1 kiwi, ¼” slices
  • 1 star fruit, ¼” slices
  • 1½ tbl organic cane sugar
  • pinch of sea salt
  • ¼ cup toasted walnuts


Saute the banana, kiwi and star fruit in coconut oil for 3-4 minutes over medium heat. Sprinkle the sugar over the top and continue to saute until the fruit has caramelized, 5 minutes more. Sprinkle with sea salt and add the walnuts to combine.

Coconut Whipped Cream

  • 1 15oz can coconut milk (this will not work with light coconut milk), chilled overnight
  • 2 tbl organic powdered sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract


Once the coconut milk has chilled for at least 6 hours or overnight, gently remove the top without shaking the can. Scoop out the coconut fat that has come to the top, leaving the coconut water in the can. Combine the fat with the sugar and vanilla and whip on high speed for 3-5 minutes until you get medium peaks.
