Lesson #85: Spelt Chocolate Chip Cookies

A friend gave me this recipe for a completely different type of chocolate chip cookie. They are made with spelt flour. According to the package of flour (manufactured by Bob's Red Mill), spelt is a primitive relative of present date wheat. It has high water solubility and it's nutrients are quickly absorbed into the body. I've never worked with this type of flour before, so I was excited to try it.

These cookies are definitely worth making - especially if you like to experiment with different types of flour and are interested in healthier alternatives to all-purpose flour. This recipe also uses turbinado (raw) sugar which gives the cookies a course texture. The flour has a very nutty flavor and is slightly sweet, so when combined with the turbinado sugar and some yummy chocolate chips, these cookies are FABULOUS!

LESSON LEARNED: It was worthwhile to experiment with spelt flour!
