Crisp and Buttery Einkorn Waffles with Aronia Berries

  • Author: Nikki Cervone
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 3-4 waffles total 1x


We’re serving our crispy and buttery einkorn waffles with a tart and bitter punch from aronia berries.


  • 1 cup all-purpose einkorn flour
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse kosher salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup whole milk, plus more as needed
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup frozen and thawed aronia berries, for topping*
  • Maple syrup, for topping


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, butter, and vanilla extract until completely combined.
  3. Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and whisk just until a thick and smooth batter forms, adding more milk in 1/8-cup increments if the batter is too thick for pouring. Do not overmix.
  4. Allow the batter to rest at room temperature for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat a Belgian waffle maker.
  5. Lightly grease the waffle iron with nonstick cooking spray. Pour 1/2-3/4 cup of batter into the center of the waffle iron, or the appropriate amount for your appliance.
  6. Close the lid and cook until lightly golden brown, about 3-5 minutes. Repeat with the remaining batter, lightly greasing the waffle iron between batches.
  7. Place the waffles on plates and serve with a small scoopful of aronia berries and a drizzle of maple syrup on top.


Raw aronia berries are very bitter and astringent. If desired, replace with fresh blueberries or the roasted option described above.
