Cookies That The Whole Family Will Love To Eat

Spelt Cookies

Written by Renata Trebing

Cookies are a much-loved favourite for many people. In this recipe, the author has combined the ingredient spelt with another world favorite ingredient, the humble, but ever loved chocolate chip. If you are new to spelt, you might not know that it is an ancient grain, and has been around for a long time. Many cultures and civilizations have relied upon this grain for survival. The only reason it dropped out of favour was the price tag. Once the wheat grain gained popularity the sheer volume produced drove down the costs. Wheat all of a sudden was much cheaper than the other grains, and there was a migration away from many of the more ancient, and in many cases healthier grains.

The author has chosen 'spelt' to showcase its flavour and more importantly its health benefits. This spelt cookie recipe combines a healthy grain with stevia, a healthier sweetening alternative, adding the naughtiness of chocolate.
