Nut Butter & Cranberry Cookies

A day spent in the garden sweeping and scrubbing worked up a good appetite. Chopping the tree down and finding a wasps nest in the middle of it meant I needed something nice to get over the shock. These did the job!

They are easy to whip up and with all spelt flour, good fats, low sugar content with delicious chocolate nut butter makes a pretty good option for a still delicious tasting biscuit. I love using different flours and the spelt flour adds a lovely nuttiness and coarser texture that works perfectly with the nut butters.

My other half orders all our nut butters from iherb in the US and they are really good. If you use this code DOM130 you can avail of a discount through him.

  1. Love the cookie sandwich, just what I need right now. This sounds like a lovely recipe. All I’ve had are some Nice biscuits – delicious but not quite the same!
