Spelt Carob Chip Cookies

spelt-carob-chip-cookies

A heartier tasting cookie with the natural sweetness of carob always delights. They are quick to make, and both the dough and cookies freeze well.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 c butter, softened
  • 1/2 c coconut palm sugar (you may use xylitol but it doesn’t blend as well)
  • 1 egg
  • 1t vanilla
  • 1 3/4 c spelt flour
  • 1/2 t baking powder
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/2 c unsweetened carob chips

Process

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Beat the butter, sugar, egg and vanilla together.
  • Blend in the spelt flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Once the ingredients meld, fold in the carob chips.
  • Drop by the tablespoon (or teaspoon) onto silpat, parchment paper or greased baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until they begin to brown. They brown from the bottom up; the tops will still be soft, but they’ll firm up as they cool.
  • Let them cool.
  • Enjoy!

 

Warning = Spelt contains gluten! Some find they tolerate it well, but others don’t.
