Ricotta Spelt Waffles

I am participating in current WonderMill Blogger Challenge which challenges us to make waffles, I have not used my waffle iron for about 8 YEARS! I tend to prefer pancakes over waffles, plus pancake recipes are usually lower in sugar and oil. But I decided to break from my pancake habits and work on a fun waffle recipe.


I had some leftover ricotta cheese in my fridge from some other experiments I have been baking that needed to get used. I have seen many lemon ricotta pancake and waffle recipes out there so I decided to do something different than the traditional “lemon ricotta”. Why not just plain whole grain ricotta waffles? The ricotta cheese would give it a great texture and the whole grain flour will mellow-out the ricotta cheese taste, a little cinnamon helps too. Click here for the recipe that I based mine off.

I have also been trying to use more Spelt Wheat and KAMUT Wheat flours in my recipes. These two wheat types have not been genetically modified as the wheat used for whole wheat flour has been. I still store and use hard white wheat but I just want to use even healthier grains when possible.

Plus, KAMUT and Spelt have a great taste too them. I decided to use Spelt wheat for this recipe, I ground my Spelt wheat on the fine setting of my WonderMill.
