For quite a while, I haven’t been making cookies that I enjoy(how sad is that?!).  For a while now I’ve written them off as something only for special occasions and as a result I’ve only been making the cookies my husband likes that I don’t really care for.  Which is like, one kind.  Just recently I’ve come to the realization that making cookies with whole grains is a much better alternative.  There’s nothing wrong with a little butter(or coconut oil) and while these still do have a considerable amount of sugar, I find that the whole grains keep me from eating half the batch in one sitting.

I also find that I over complicate things.  These are good and good for you and good for a treat.  That’s all there is to it.

I’ve been experimenting with spelt lately and I love it 🙂  I can’t wait to try more recipes with it and hopefully I get some spelt from my grain csa later in the year.

A small note on this recipe, you can quite easily halve it and being a cookie I’m sure it freezes well too(although none of my batch made it that far) so if you’re like me and don’t want to be stuck with a ton of cookies you can make a smaller batch or just freeze some 🙂
