Up for today is a recipe for peanut butter cookies made with spelt flour.
Simply put: I do not use white flour. Ever.
I mean I have some and all, but if a recipe calls for white flour, I always swap it out with something else. That’s what I do. Tweak recipes for the family. Although, even I will admit that at times whole wheat flour can not successfully be substituted for white.
In comes spelt flour. I like to use spelt flour in baked goods because it is healthier that white flour, and can be incorporated nicely in cookies and pancakes. Great flavor, great nutrition.
Peanut Butter Cookies
1½ cups spelt flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp sea salt
1 cup natural peanut butter
⅓ cup maple syrup
¼ cup coconut oil (melted down)
1½ tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl combine wet ingredients.
Pour the peanut butter mixture over the flour mixture and fold to combine.
Once combined, drop small rounded balls of dough onto a parchment lined or greased baking sheet.
Press down on each one gently with the back of a fork.
Bake for 10 minutes, the cookies will still be slightly soft but will harden as they cool.
Let cool for 15 minutes. Enjoy!
I love all things peanut butter. It is definitely my flavor of choice for pretty much any dessert: cookies, ice cream, granola bars…
