Spelt Biscuits

Rating: 4.5 stars 118
I have made these biscuits for health nuts and non healthy eaters alike, but there are never leftovers. These are heavier on account of the spelt flour, but the nutty whole grain flavor is divine. Best when served fresh out of the oven, eaten with butter and honey or jam.

Spelt Bread II

Rating: 4 stars 26
This is a very good bread that's very easy to make. I also make spelt muffins and spelt brownies which are really good also. Spelt has a nice nutty flavor and is available in most natural foods stores.

Spicy Chicken and Spelt Salad

Rating: 5 stars 25
This is a colorful and wonderfully zippy chicken and spelt salad with a spicy soy sauce dressing.

Spelt Noodles

Rating: 4 stars 9
I was making pasta for a friend who is on a wheat-free diet and almost despaired until I discovered white spelt flour. Don't confuse it and use regular organic spelt flour. Well, you can substitute, but it's not as much like wheat flour pasta ...

Spelt Flour Bread Machine Challah

Rating: 5 stars 14
I got a challah recipe from my husband and tweaked it to use spelt flour. This recipe makes a beautiful 2-pound braided challah. I like to divide the dough in 3; make two loaves and one little roll. I like to try different toppings each time I make this recipe, such as sesame seeds, dried onion flakes, granulated garlic, kosher salt, or flax seeds.

Shredded Apple Spelt Cake

Rating: 4.5 stars 12
This yummy treat can be eaten as dessert, breakfast, or anytime! It stays moist for days after it has been baked. It's a hit with all my friends.

Julene's Spelt Cookies

Rating: 4.5 stars 15
These are a heartier version of the traditional chocolate chip cookie recipes. Using spelt flour, which is higher in protein and lower in carbohydrate, is a very nice change. The cookies are easy to make and are delicious! Spelt flour is now available in many grocery stores and all health food stores. Try adding sunflower seeds, almonds, shredded coconut, or oats to the batter for something different!

Dairy and Wheat Free Apple-Cinnamon Spelt Waffles

You'd never guess these waffles are made without milk and wheat flour. They are so tasty you'll want to add them to your 'use often' recipes.

Carob Fudge Brownies

These brownies feature neither sugar nor chocolate, rather they are sweetened with honey and use carob powder and brewed tea to give flavor.

Ezekiel Bread I

Rating: 4 stars 51
This is the bread that Ezekiel lived off of while he was in the desert for two years. It is supposed to be nutritionally complete. The recipe calls for grinding your own flour from a variety of grains and dried beans.
