Dark muscovado sugar we used in this recipe, lends amazing caramel taste to the cookies. These healthy rustic chocolate chip cookies are worth giving a try. Or why not to try our whole grain orange chocolate cookies, similar to these ones.

How to make walnut spelt chocolate chip cookies

Making these chocolate chip cookies is so easy and quick. You don't even need an electric mixer as we use melted butter in this recipe.

  1. First prepare WALNUTS by lightly toasting them and chocolate by chopping it on a cutting board into smaller pieces. Set both aside.

  2. Combine SPELT FLOUR with BAKING SODA and SALT in one bowl. 

  3. Melt BUTTER on a low heat then transfer to a heatproof bowl. Add MUSCOVADO SUGAR, EGG YOLK and VANILLA EXTRACT and whisk until combined. Gradually fold in flour, chocolate and walnuts. 

  4. Shaping cookies is so easy. Scoop the dough of the size of walnut and roll into balls. Place them on the baking sheet, apart and flatten slightly. Bake for about 7-8 minutes and your cookies are done. From this dough we got 24 cookies.

Take the cookies from the oven while still slightly underbaked, as they will continue to bake on the baking sheet. This way they are going to have a great texture once cool.

Storing walnut spelt chocolate chip cookies

If you have some leftover cookies store them in a stainless steel cookie container or a glass cookie jar at room temperature for up to 7 days. You can also freeze the baked or unbaked cookies. If freezing the dough, portion it out into balls first, freeze, then place in plastic freezer bag and return to the freezer.
