what makes these cookies so special

For these cookies we combined whole grain spelt and hazelnut flours, which gives cookies deep nutty flavour and dense texture. We love cookies made with whole grain spelt flour like in our crunchy cookies packed with toasted walnuts.

In this recipe we choose to use whole-grain spelt flour, but standard white spelt flour will also work fine. You can also swap hazelnut meal for hazelnut flour or just skip it and use only spelt flour. These healthy flours can be bought at organic food stores.

Cookies are sweetened with dark muscovado sugar, which gives them slightly caramel taste and chewy texture once combined with the rest of ingredients. We recommend using good quality chocolate with at least 55% cocoa and unsweetened cocoa powder to make these cookies super chocolatey.

how to make double chocolate spelt cookies

To make these chocolate cookies, start with combining whole grain spelt flour, hazelnut flour (or hazelnut meal), cocoa powder (sifted), baking powder and salt in one bowl.

In another larger bowl, whisk muscovado sugar, melted butter, egg, vanilla extract and some finely grated citrus zest. Now, fold slowly dry ingredients into wet ingredients and stir using silicon spatula until you get a smooth and sticky dough. Add chocolate chunks and stir until incorporated.

Shaping cookies is easy, just scoop the dough of the size of large walnut and roll into balls. Place balls on the baking tray, flatten slightly and bake for only 5 - 6 minutes. They should still be soft on touch when taken from the oven.

Leave them to cool on the tray shortly then transfer to a cooling rack. Your double chocolate spelt cookies are ready to dunk into warm milk!

storing / Making ahead double chocolate spelt cookies

Cookies are the best on the day they are made. If you have some leftover cookies store them in an airtight container for about 5 days.

If you want to have fresh cookies, the best is to make a batch of cookie dough and refrigerate or freeze it, then just bake however many you plan to serve that day. Unbaked cookies dough balls freeze well for up to 3 months. Bake frozen cookie balls for an extra minute, no need to thaw.

double chocolate spelt cookies

MAKES: 18 cookies
COOKS IN: 30 minutes



  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C (347°F) and line two baking trays with baking paper. You can bake the whole batch in 2 rounds.
