Cookies are a favourite snack with kids but the packaged options are usually filled with lots of sugar and preservatives. By baking your own you know exactly what’s in them. By making your own you’re also saving a lot of money, as you’ll soon realise how little it costs to bake cookies in bulk.
120 g (1 cup) wholemeal spelt flour
30 g (¼ cup) cacao powder (or a rich dutch cocoa powder)
¼ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
Pinch sea salt
1 teaspoon vanilla powder, pastes or essence
50 g (¼ cup) coconut or macadamia nut oil
30 g (3 tablespoons) milk (of your choice)
85 g (¼ cup) sweetener (honey, rice malt syrup or pure maple syrup)
1. Preheat your oven to 150℃.
2. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, cacao powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt.
3. In a blender or food processor, mix the vanilla, oil, milk and syrup until well combined. Thermomix 30 sec, speed 4.
4. Add the wet to the dry ingredients and mix together until dough forms. Thermomix 30 sec, speed 4 or until combined.
5. Roll into a ball, wrap in cling wrap or baking paper and refrigerate for 30-60 minutes.
6. Place the dough between two pieces of baking paper and roll to approximately 2-3 millimetres thick.
7. Cut into shapes with a cookie cutter, place on a lined or greased baking tray and bake for 10 minutes.
8. Leave on the tray until completely cooled.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.
Gluten-free: Substitute your preferred gluten-free flour (preferably wholegrain).
Dairy-free: Choose a nondairy milk. I love coconut milk.
