How to Make Waffles from Soaked Wheat Flour

When my family transitioned from a Standard American Diet to a real food lifestyle I quickly learned the importance of sprouting, soaking or souring grains before eating them.

I also quickly learned that soaking grains was less expensive than buying sprouted flour and took less time than making homemade sprouted flour. (Although I do still love a nice sprouted spelt flour when I can find it.)

When I was short on both time and money (as we moms sometimes are, right?) I’d turn to soaked flour to create nourishing recipes for my family.

One of my favorite things to make from soaked flour is soaked waffles and soaked pancakes.

My soaked waffle recipe, like any soaked wheat recipe, requires planning ahead, but the results are worth it.

Nourishing Soaked Waffles Recipe

Soaked Wheat Flour Waffles Recipe – A Nourishing and Comforting Breakfast Recipe

Soaked waffles with lovely organic, Grade B maple syrup is one of our favorite breakfast foods. These soaked waffles are crispy on the outside and fluffy and chewy on the inside.

The boys like to put my homemade chocolate syrup on these comfort-food waffles, as well. Be sure to check out my suggestions for other toppings after the recipe.

And, as always, look to the end of the post for a printable version of my soaked waffles recipe.

Remember you’ll need to start this recipe at least twelve hours before you want to make the waffles.

When I make soaked waffles – or any soaked flour recipe – I usually double the recipe so that we have leftovers to freeze for another day. This makes the twelve-hour flour soaking period a little easier to deal with. At least I get two breakfast meals from it instead of just one.

Here’s the recipe. Scroll down for a printable version.

Ingredients
2.5 cups flour (I use organic unbleached flour.)
2 cups filtered water
2 Tbsp whey (or another acidic medium – you can use apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, buttermilk, etc)
2 eggs
2 Tbsp melted butter
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
4 Tbsp Grade B maple syrup

Instructions
1. Combine flour, water, and whey. Cover and let it sit for 12-24 hours.
2. Add the eggs, butter, salt, vanilla and maple syrup to the soaked flour mixture.
3. Combine the baking soda with a little water and pour it into the waffle mixture and combine.
(It is normal for the dough to be sticky and difficult to stir. I use a thick wooden spoon and employ a whipping motion to combine the ingredients.)
4. Grease your waffle iron with butter or coconut oil if necessary. (I never need it to prevent sticking. I set my waffle iron on the highest setting, as well.)
5. Ladle the waffle batter onto the waffle iron and cook until golden brown.

Additional flavor or topping ideas:

  • Add 1/2-1 cup of pumpkin and 1 tsp of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice for pumpkin waffles.
  • Add 1/2-1 cup of berries.
  • Add 1/2 cup of naturally sweetened chocolate chips for chocolate chip waffles. (The pumpkin plus chocolate chip addition is a fall favorite!)
  • Add 2 tsp of cinnamon for cinnamon waffles.
  • Add 1/4 of cocoa powder for chocolate waffles.
  • Add 1/2 cup of ripe, mashed banana for banana waffles. (This is yummy combined with cocoa powder.)
