CASHEW CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES - INGREDIENTS1 cup cashew butter (I use Georgia Grinders cashew butter for everything)2/3 cup One Degree Organics Sprouted Spelt Flour3/4 cup coconut sugar1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract1/2 tsp cinnamon1/2 tsp salt1 1/2 tsp baking soda1/2 cup water1 cup dark chocolate baking chunks

Have you guys ever baked with spelt flour? To be honest, most of the time I gravitate towards making treats with almond flour, because I love the protein from the almonds, and I always lean towards making gluten-free treats. I’m not celiac, but my body certainly doesn’t digest gluten well, which typically results in an upset stomach.

That all changed when I discovered the sprouted flours from One Degree Organics. I’m actually pretty obsessed with their entire product line, but the Sprouted Spelt Flour is a game changer. If you didn’t know, when grains are sprouted, the enzymes in them start to break-down phytic acid and your body can absorb more of the vitamins and minerals in your food. And many people, like me, find that they can easily digest sprouted flours.

Today I am sharing this recipe for Cashew Chocolate Chip Cookies. They are egg free, which makes them vegan.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cashew butter (I use Georgia Grinders cashew butter for everything)
  • 2/3 cup One Degree Organics Sprouted Spelt Flour
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup dark chocolate baking chunks

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add the cashew butter, coconut sugar, salt, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. Yes, it will be difficult to mix, but just roll up your sleeves and mix it all together. Sometimes I even stick my hand in the bowl to form a ball.
  • Next, add the baking soda, spelt flour, and water.
  • Last, fold in the baking chunks.
  • Using a cookie scoop, form 12 cookies and place them on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10 minutes. Enjoy!

    • YES! You can do a 1:1 substitution for whole wheat flour (One Degree Organics makes a sprouted one, but its not necessary) or gluten free flour (I like Bob’s red mill gf flour). Hope you love this recipe Dana!

  1. These cookies are mouthwatering! I have never tried spelt flour but I think it’s time. Thanks for the recipe, Nicole!

    • Thank you so much Gigi! I hope you make them and enjoy them as much as we do!
