Vegan spelt Cookies // RECIPE

I absoultey love cooking with spelt flour - it has a light nutty flavour which adds nicely to any baked goods with a light and fluffy finish. It is a whole grain flour which is high in protein and rich in vitamins and minerals. Spelt does contain gluten but it is a little bit different, it can be broken down with kneading, though this may provide a more crumbly finish - be gentle! 

Last week during the rainy weather I couldn't resist baking, so cookies were on the menu. Easy, quick and a delicious treat.

What you need:

1 cup oats

1 cup spelt flour

1 cup dessicated coconut

3/4 cup coconut sugar

3/4 cup coconut oil

3 tablespoons pure maple syrup

1 teaspoon bi carb soda

1 teaspoon vanilla

30ml water

What to do:

Combine oats, spelt flour, coconut - mix well

In a saucpan heat coconut sugar, coconut oil, mapple, vanilla and water - once combined add bi carb (it should fizz up)

Mix together both dry and wet mix until a dough forms

Roll dough into balls and place on lined tray - flatten with a fork or hands

Place in oven at 170 degrees for 15-20minutes or until golden brown

Once cooled I used Mayvers Organic Peanut Cacao Spread to squish between two cookies for a decadent treat!

Hope you enjoy
