How do you spelt goodness?

My title is my attempt at being funny...

How it is working?

When purchasing ingredients sometimes companies are kind enough to put recipes on the packaging to give you some ideas.

For example we are all probably VERY familiar with Toll House and their cookie recipe.

Today I want to share something that I found on the back of my Arrowhead Mills Spelt flour bag (hence the spelt joke).

Spelt Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/2 C Earth Balance, softened
3/4 C turbinado sugar
1 Ener-g "egg"
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 3/4 C spelt flour
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 C vegan chocolate chips

Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl.

Take a tablespoon scoop and place about 2 in. apart on a greased cookie sheet.  They will need to be patted down if you want a flatter cookie (I found that these didn't spread as they cooked like a traditional all purpose flour cookie will).

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

This recipe made 30 cookies.

They were completely delicious, of course you can't really go wrong with a chocolate chip cookie.

I really enjoy the "nuttier" flavor of the spelt flour and I think it gives it another layer of taste which just ramps up the yum factor for the cookie.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  I have decorating and cookie baking to do?  What is on your to do list?


  1. I like your word play, particularly because I almost always use spelt flour. I use light, though, so it doesn't really have the nutty flavour. I find it works better than the whole flour for a lot of baking. Anyway, those cookies sure do look good!!

  2. I LOVE Spelt! I use it when I make pizza crust too! Happy Weekend!

  3. Hi Rachel! I hope you've had a great weekend :)
    I've never used spelt flour before but I've always wanted to try it. Next time I'm at the health food store I'll buy some and give your choc chip cookies I try. They look delicious and I love the idea of a 'nuttier' choc chip cookie.
