For years I have been making einkorn waffles for my family. When I was first learning to use this ancient grain there were not very many recipes available to learn with. Over time I have been able to modify recipes that called for regular flour into an einkorn version. This change has made our dishes taste so much better than what we were used to.
This recipe is so easy. If you use einkorn flour in your kitchen, you likely already have these ingredients in your pantry and fridge. If you don’t know about einkorn flour, you can read more detailed information in this article Should Einkorn be in Your Kitchen?
My kids love waffles so much – so creating a quick and simple recipe was necessary.
I certainly don’t have time for long recipes with four little kids, one of which is a baby! Plus, I wanted to be able to make them for breakfast more routinely. Compared to my Blueberry Muffins or my Einkorn Banana Bread, this is just as filling and easy to make. I have even doubled this and saved it in the fridge for up to three days when planning out busy weeks. You can also freeze them for times you know you will need them, such as preparing for postpartum. You can read about my Postpartum Care Ideas here if you’d like.
How to Make Einkorn Waffles
When working with einkorn, it is best to weigh the einkorn flour. This is why all my einkorn recipes show measurements in grams. This also eliminates more dirty dishes by pouring the ingredients directly into the bowl, instead of using measuring cups and spoons. However, in some of my recipes the ingredients are too small to weigh, so measuring spoons are necessary.
- Einkorn Flour
- Baking Powder
- Salt (omit if using salted butter)

Steps for making Einkorn Waffles
Step one, you’ll need to warm the butter and milk. I don’t own a microwave, so I place the milk and butter in a bowl and pop it in the convection oven for 10 minutes at 250 degrees. However, you could use a microwave or heat them up on the stovetop in a small pot. Just be careful not to over heat them. The goal is to get the milk warm and the butter melted so that it can be quickly absorbed into the flour mix.
Next, you’ll mix the egg and vanilla with the warm milk and melted butter. Mix these until fully combined. I use my kitchen aid for this.
After your wet ingredients have been mixed together, add your einkorn flour. I used all purpose in this recipe, but if you’d like to use whole grain einkorn flour you would use 192g whole wheat einkorn flour instead of 240g all-purpose einkorn flour. Before turning on the mixer, make sure you add the baking soda.
Now this next ingredient is optional. I personally don’t add it when I am making waffles or pancakes, however I will recommend it if you prefer a more classic tasting waffle. Two tablespoons of sugar.
The reason I omit this for my recipe is because after we top it with homemade whipped cream, fruit, and maple syrup, there is enough sweetness to make it taste exceptional. But if you are not adding all these toppings, I suggest adding the sugar to the batter. In fact, you can use any sweetener: white sugar, coconut sugar, you get the point.
Also, if you are not using salted butter, add 1tsp of salt at this point as well.
Now turn on your mixer and fully combine these ingredients. I mix on medium-low speed until fully combined, being careful not to overmix.
Once your batter is ready, scoop batter into your waffle maker and cook until yours beeps.
This recipe makes five fluffy, crispy, delicious einkorn waffles. They are very filling, however if you have a large family like mine, I highly recommend doubling or tripling this recipe!
