This is my favourite cookie recipe! It is the perfect cookie that is soft in the inside with a nice crunch on the outside. It is 100% whole grain and you will never be able to tell. Once you try it, it will become your next go-to cookie recipe.
- 7 TBS Butter (or 1/4 cup + 3 TBS)
- 7 TBS Natural Peanut Butter (or 1/4 cup + 3 TBS) *Can also use regular peanut butter
- 1/2 cup cane sugar (or white sugar)
- 1/2 cup + 2 TBS coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 cup Spelt flour
- 1 cup quick oats (or rolled)
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- Add your butter, peanut butter, and both sugars to your mixer (or use your hand mixer.). Turn the mixer on to low-medium and let the sugar and butter blend together to get fluffy for about 3 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl if needed.
- Add your eggs one at a time and mix until completely combined.
- Combine your spelt flour, oats, baking soda, and salt to a mixing bowl and use a whisk to combine.
- Add your dry ingredients to your butter/sugar/egg mixture and start the mixer again to combine. This won’t take long and you don’t want to over mix it! This should only take 15-30 seconds.
- Take the finished cookie batter and transfer it to a mixing bowl (I use the one I used for my dry ingredients) and then add your chocolate chips and use a spatula to mix them in.
- Cover the bowl well and place into the fridge for AT LEAST 1 hour. A few hours is optimal. I often make the batter the night before and bake the next day!
- Once the batter is chilled, preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
- Roll the dough into 12 equal balls and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. I usually use two pans or two batches.
- Bake at 375 degrees for 12 minutes. The middles will look a little bit soft in the middle but they will set as they cool!
- Leave the cookies to cool on the pan for at least 10 minutes.
- If you make the cookies into different sizes, either smaller or bigger (then the original 12 cookies) then you will have to alter the cooking time by a few minutes. Just keep a close eye!
- If you make bigger cookies they will need a few extra minutes and if you make smaller cookies they will need a couple less minutes.
- I have made this recipe with Almond Butter and it works great as well.
