Sprouted wheat waffles may sound healthy and not very good but trust me these waffles are amazing. They are light and fluffy and full of flavor.
I’m trying to get healthier this year. One way I’m doing this is by trying to start eating breakfast. This is hard not because I don’t love breakfast food, it’s my favorite, but because I hate mornings. I’ve been working on my hate of mornings and while they are getting better I’ll never be a morning person.
I love cereal but it’s not usually the healthiest of breakfasts, at least not on it’s own. Oatmeal is great and I’ve been doing that some mornings but it can get boring. My favorite breakfasts are ones I can make ahead and get ready in the time it takes my cup of tea to brew.
Waffles are my favorite breakfast food. I love waffles, have since I was a kid. I’ll eat the freezer kind but let’s be honest they are nothing like a homemade waffle.
Waffles however aren’t the healthiest of foods, until now! I finally found a recipe for a whole grain waffle that is still light and fluffy, low in sugar, a good source of fiber and a reasonable number of carbs. The secret is King Arthur Sprouted Wheat Flour. It’s delicious.
Sprouted flour has long been kind of a niche flour but thanks to King Arthur it’s now easy to find and use. It’s great for baking and packed with nutrition. Sprouting is said to make flour more digestible as well. It gives you the good parts of whole grains with a lighter taste, perfect for these waffles!

I always love when brands I already know and love take an extra step to take care of the environment and people in it. Another brand I love just became B Corp certified, Stonyfield. Stonyfield is by far my favorite yogurt brand. It’s the brand that got me to like yogurt, I hated it before. Now yogurt is a favorite snack. I like to use it as a sweet treat in place of dessert. I have a major sweet tooth but it can keep me from reaching for the cookies.
Other brands you may have heard of that are B Corps are Preserve, Pukka, Purely Elizabeth, Method, and Pete and Jerry’s. I love seeing more and more brands that I use becoming a B Corp certified brand. And many of these brands can be found on my favorite online natural market, Thrive Market.
This waffle recipe is a great way to start using more B Corp brands. Who knew eating waffles could do so much good?
- 1 1/2 cups King Arthur Sprouted Wheat Flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 1/4 cups lukewarm milk
- 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
- In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, melted coconut oil, and vanilla.
- Mix the liquid ingredients into the dry, stirring just until combined; batter will still be lumpy, this is normal.
- Allow the batter to rest while you preheat your waffle iron.
- Lightly grease your waffle iron with refined coconut oil.
- Follow your waffle irons directions for cooking the waffles.
Don’t forget to use a teflon-free waffle iron. Teflon is one thing I don’t allow in my home, I made the switch to safer cookware years ago and thankfully have found a great teflon-free waffle iron as well.
