Sugar Free Einkorn Cookies with Black Sesame and Nori | © 2017 |

These wholemeal cookies, inspired by Cheah, with nori and black sesame seeds are perfect for dunking and ideal served with a cuppa! The recipe is quite simple and so much healthier with stone-milled einkorn flour, plus it's refined-sugar free, so you can feel a little less guilty having an extra slice.

  • 320 g Einkorn berries, ground into flour
  • 1/4 tsp Baking soda
  • A large pinch of sea salt
  • 230 g Butter, softened
  • 110 g Erythritol granules
  • 3 Egg yolks, room-temperature
  • 5 Nori sheets (22cmx22cm), cut into small pieces
  • 1 Egg white, lightly whisked
  • 40 g Black sesame seeds
  1. Place einkorn flour, baking soda and salt in a mixing bowl. Whisk to combine. Cream butter and erythritol granules until pale and fluffy. Add in egg yolks, one at at time, beat until combined.
  2. Sift flour mixture over butter mixture. Using a wooden spoon, stir to combine. Stir in chopped nori sheet. Place dough on a lightly floured surface. Shape into two 25-cm logs and brush logs lightly all over with egg white. Roll in black sesame seeds to coat. Wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm.
  3. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Remove the logs from the fridge and discard plastic wrap. Cut into 1cm-thick rounds. Place on trays. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden. Cool on trays for 5 minutes. | © 2017 | | © 2017 |

Hi Angie, could I order one lot of these delicious looking cookies? I guess the einkorn flour can be replaced by plain flour?
