Chocolate Spelt Crinkle Cookies

This is a healthy cookies, because using spelt flour instead regular flour, the original recipe from Angie's site

It does taste yummy, crispy at the outside and soft in the inside , the texture almost like brownies.

  • 165 g Spelt flour
  • 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 180 g Dark chocolate mocha beans
  • 4 tbsp Butter
  • 2 Eggs, at room temperature
  • 100 g Caster sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 40 g Icing sugar, sifted
  1. Preheat the oven to 165C/330F. Line two baking trays with paper. Whisk the spelt flour, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl. Melt the Mocha chocolate beans and butter in a bowl over a small pan of simmering water until smooth. Cool slightly.
  2. Beat the eggs and sugar with an electric whisk until pale, about 2 minutes. Reduce the speed and add the mocha chocolate mix and vanilla extract. Sift in the flour mixture and fold until combined. Cover the bowl with a plastic wrap and chill for 2 hours until firm, or up to overnight.
  3. Put the icing sugar in a small bowl. Shape the dough into 32 balls and roll in the icing sugar. Put them on the prepared baking trays 4-cm apart and press down lightly to flatten. Bake for about 12 minutes until the edges set. Let cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes and then put on a rack to cool completely.
