Everybody loves waffles but not everybody does well on conventional waffle recipes. If you are passionate about proper grain preparation you will love this recipe for sourdough and sprouted whole wheat waffles.
Traditional sourdough waffles are really lovely, but they require a bit of planning as the batter is typically started the night before. I don’t know about you, but I’m not always that organized! With this recipe that uses sprouted whole wheat flour, you can use sourdough starter discard straight from the refrigerator moments before cooking your waffles.
Sourdough and Sprouted Whole Wheat Health Benefits
Souring grains, as is done in the sourdough process, has many health benefits ranging from improved digestibility to increasing nutrients and decreasing phytic acid. Grains that have been soured are nutritionally far superior to fresh grains.
Sprouted Wheat Flour
Sprouting wheat is another way of transforming the nutrient-blocking phytic acid in grains and creating easily digestible enzymes. Sprouting also increases vitamin C, B vitamins, and carotene. But the really great thing about sprouted wheat flour is it is dry flour and can be used in recipes without further processing!
