So, it's safe to say I love cookies, and sweets, and baking in general. It's so fun experimenting with different grains and sweeteners in the kitchen to create something that's tasty but also healthy. This week, I ended up buying some spelt flour. I know I'm probably really behind on this bandwagon, but, I fell in love!
Spelt is so great. It's an easy grain and flour to work with as far as baking goes. I pretty much used it like I would any wheat flour. But the best part is, its chalk-full of nutrients. It's packed with B vitamins, manganese, iron, and fiber. The best part is, is that it is water-soluble. What does that mean? Well, it essentially makes the nutrients easier to absorb into our bodies.
On top of all of these amazing things, spelt is pitta pacifying--meaning that it is super cooling and light. It's perfect for the summer time to use as your go-to grain.
Without further ado, here's my recipe for spelt cookies. I decided to use fig, because one, I'm loving fig lately. And two, fig is also great for pitta, i.e. summer time.
These cookies are super soft and airy--the perfect afternoon treat to calm and cool yourself down. Enjoy!
