Rolled Spelt Cookies


Those cookies, crispy and chewy, are loaded with spelt flakes, wheat germ, chopped nuts, chocolate and dried fruit. They are so freaking good. Rolled spelt flakes offer an excellent source of dietary fiber, protein, vitamin B1 and niacin. They are a delicious and healthy alternative to rolled oats in baked goods, homemade muesli, or even in salads!

Spelt has become such a popular ingredient, and these beautiful cookies make me want to use spelt (and chocolate and cranberries!) immediately.

Oh yum! Think I will give this recipe a try, but maybe with rolled oats...since spelt is relatively less accessible and more $$, heehee. :D Thanks Angie. ;)
