spelt-cocoa-chia seed waffles

happy labor day! as you may know, i recently purchased a tiny waffle maker. so, i had to make waffles to celebrate the long labor day weekend:

i found a couple of recipes online, and ultimately adapted the recipe from this recipe for vegan spelt cocoa waffles, using the ingredients i had on hand.

this is the recipe for the ones i made (makes 5 small waffles):

spelt-cocoa-chia seed waffles


  • 1 cup spelt flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder, sifted
  • pinch of salt
  • β…› tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ripe banana or Β½ cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1/4 cup nut milk
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup (or any liquid sweetener)Β 


  1. Mix dry ingredients in a medium bowl: spelt flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, and salt.
  2. In another bowl, mix together wet ingredients: vanilla extract, banana or applesauce, nut milk, chia seeds, coconut oil, and maple syrup. let this sit for a few minutes.
  3. Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix well. Cover with plastic wrap and transfer to the fridge for about 5-10 minutes so the waffle batter has time to thicken.
  4. cook waffles according to waffle iron’s directions or until crispy!

char and i both thought they turned out great! do you have a favorite waffle recipe? share it with me! are you making anything fun for labor day?!
