Oatmeal Spelt and Cranberry Cookies

by grainnep

Nothing like a nice biscuit with a cup of coffee especially when it is a well-earned treat after some good exercise. I love callers for coffee especially on a Saturday afternoon and like to have something nice ready to have with an Americano and a good catch up.
These are really easy to pull together and make either 12 jumbo or 24 more refined sweet treats. The spelt and oats work really well together and they have a lovely texture. The coconut palm sugar gives a lovely nutty sweetness and when warm they melt in the mouth.

Oven at 180
5 oz butter at room temp
2 1/2 oz coconut palm sugar or dark unrefined sugar if you don’t have it
1 tbsp golden syrup
3oz spelt
4oz oats
1oz pecans chopped
1oz pine nuts
1oz cranberries or other dried fruit
2 tsp cornflour

Blitz the nuts to biggish crumbs, not complete disintegrated
Cream butter and sugar together until pale and smooth
Stir in the syrup and all the other dry ingredients and mix well
Form balls from the mixture of about a soup spoon size and flatten slightly on a try lined with parchment paper
Bake for 10 minutes and allow to cool slightly on the tray and enjoy!
