Sweet Treat Recipe: Sugar-Free Chocolate Chip Spelt Cookie

January 14, 2015

Trying to keep your new years resolution, but that pesky sweet tooth is just too demanding? Try these sweet treats!

I have always found wheat does not really agree with me, no matter how whole wheat or 12 grain I go. Spelt, on the other hand has been kinder to my digestive system. In an attempt to keep my blood sugar under control, I had also given up all refined sugars. After trying a few variations, my daughter (the baker in our family) found this combination to work.

Though, I used sugar-free chocolate chips, you can use regular or even substitute with nuts. Also, I have found 'light spelt' to work better in most recipes. The regular spelt is really only good for muffins or banana bread (think whole wheat flour).

What you need

  • 4 cups spelt flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 cups packed *Splenda Brown Sugar
  • 1.5 cups butter (melted and cooled)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 tsp halal vanilla extract
  • 3 cups chocolate chips

All you have to do:

  • Preheat oven to 325*
  • Sift together flour, baking soda, and salt. In another bowl, using an electric mixer, beat *Splenda brown sugar and melted butter until creamy.
  • Beat in eggs, yolks and halal vanilla extract. Add flour mixture with mixer on low speed using spoon to stir in chocolate chips. 
  • Bake in 325* oven until edges turn golden. (For softer cookies shorten baking time.
  • Enjoy with your favorite hot beverage or cold glass of milk!
