I am so excited to share these 24 delicious spelt flour recipes with you! I bake with spelt flour as much as possible and I love finding tried and true spelt recipes to add to my recipe repertoire.
What are the health benefits of spelt flour?
Spelt is an ancient grain that hasn’t undergone the level of hybridization of modern wheat. Spelt has higher amounts of protein and fibre and provides significant amounts of important nutrients like manganese, niacin, copper and phosphorus.
Some individuals who struggle to digest common wheat find spelt to be highly digestible. One reason for that could be that the gluten in spelt is water-soluble whereas the gluten in common wheat is not.
It is important to note that spelt is not a gluten-free flour. It is not suitable for individuals with Celiac disease. However, it may be tolerated by individuals with mild gluten intolerance because it contains less gluten than modern wheat.
Many bakers use spelt flour for it’s delicious taste rather than its health benefits. It has a delicious subtle nutty flavour and you will enjoy the depth of flavour in your baked goods so much.
Below you can find various recipes made with spelt flour including bread, cookies, muffins, breakfast foods, tasty treats and everything in between! Enjoy!

Hi! I’m Christy, a happy wife and mother to three boys, a nutritionist, a food lover and a Canadian. Creating and experimenting in the kitchen is my idea of an afternoon well spent. To me, a clean kitchen is an empty canvas of possibility and that means my kitchen never stays clean for long. My dream is that one or more of the recipes I share here will inspire you, perhaps even becoming a cherished family favourite.
