Have you ever used spelt flour in your baked goods? Have you ever used honey as your sweetener in baked goods?
If you have then I totally get why you are here! Both of these ingredients make excellent baked goods, are very nutritious, and taste super yummy! I am always on the lookout for recipes that contain these two ingredients.
If you haven’t used them before, then you are in for a real treat!

Spelt and Honey Chocolate Chip Cookies!
Today I am going to share with you the chocolate chip cookie recipe that I created for my family.
My kids looove these cookies! And I’ll admit that I have a hard time staying out of them as well;)
However, I don’t feel that guilty because I know that these cookies are made using wholesome, nutritious ingredients.
My ten year old son is learning to bake and cook and he loves to make these cookies!
And another awesome thing about this recipe, is that it makes a lot of cookies! When you have a big family, you want lots of cookies!
The two shining stars in this recipe are Spelt flour and honey!
Spelt four contains more nutrients than modern wheat. It is an ancient grain that some consider to be the parent of wheat.
I know, that sounds very difficult, but trust me it’s not! I have an awesome electric grain grinder that grinds a large container full of grain in literally just a few minutes.
This allows me to have fresh flour whenever I need it! Grinding your own flour before using it helps to prevent nutrient loss in the flour and ensures that your flour is as fresh as possible. Plus, I can buy my grain in bulk so that I have a constant supply of flour. Whole Spelt berries will literally last for decades! This is also a great idea for those who strive to be more self sufficient.
This is the grain grinder that I have used for years with great success! I love it! It will also grind any other grain that you wish to use as well.
I strive to use all natural, unrefined sweeteners in all of my baking and cooking.
Honey is a favorite in my house. In this recipe it lends lots of moisture, making the cookies very soft and chewy! I prefer to use raw local honey. We use mostly orange blossom honey, as that is in great supply here in south Florida!
Eating local honey is thought to help decrease seasonal allergies. This is because the honey is made from the pollen that we are exposed to daily, helping us to become less sensitive to that pollen.
