vegan spelt chocolate cashew cookies

 These little cookies remind me of the quintessential home made cookie. A little crisp on the bottom, and flatter than the thick gooey cookies my retail store made, but no lesser of a cookie. The spelt flour I have right now is very white (although unbleached) and it makes for old school feeling treats. This recipe take nothing more than a single bowl a spatula and 15 minutes of your life, the time / pleasure ration is pretty high here.

In a large bowl mix

2 cups spelt flour

2 tsp bp

1 tsp bs

pinch sea salt

1/2 cup organic cane sugar

1/4 cup almonds

1/4 cup cashews

1/4 cup sunflower seeds

1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

In a glass measure potion all of the below

1/2 cup organic vegatable oil

2 tsp vanilla

2/3 cup maple syrup

pour wet over dry and mix portion and bake on parchment in a 350º oven for 12 minutes  & enjoy

Punk Rocker Chocolate Drops

I couldn’t decide what to call these fabulously chocolate-y  vegan cookies, but I found the inspirational starting point for this recipe at the post punk kitchen, thus my Punk Rocker Chocolate  title. I tweaked this recipe a bit by taking out the standard wheat flour and replacing it with a blend of Buckwheat /Hemp and Kamut (I posted this as a WF/GF recipe because brown rice flour would be ideal in place of Kamut to keep this GF, however I just ran out and my partner is OK with ancient wheat grains, new discovery on the allergy front… yeah!)

I have a small confession to make… I actually HATE cookies. I know you are thinking no one on the planet hates cookies, and I know this is a true fact, because back in my city life I owned two cookie companies, and I did pretty well catering to the cookie cravings of the rest of the planet. Ok so now you’ll understand that after a decade of  making millions of cookies I don’t actually eat them, crave them, or enjoy them almost ever. Well this morning something happened… the universe has shifted, because I actually ate 3 of these! 3!

This speaks volumes at just how wicked these babies are!

YOU’LL NEED

2 cups organic (gluten free if applicable) Oats

1/2 + 1/3 cup buckwheat flour

1/2 cup kamut flour (or Rice flour for GF cookies)

1/3 cup hemp flour

2/3 cup cocoa powder

3/4 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

pinch of sea salt

1 cup organic cane sugar

1/2 cup hemp seeds

2/3 cup chocolate almond milk (you could use regular)

2/3 cup canola oil

2 tsp pure vanilla

1 cup fair trade dark chocolate chips.

Portion cookies and bake on baking parchment at 350º for  12-16 minutes.(depending on how big you make the cookies) I used a 1 oz mechanical ice cream scoop and yielded 30 super stellar cookies!
