Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups whole grain spelt flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ¾ cup natural peanut butter
  • ¼ cup hulled tahini
  • cup pure maple syrup
  • ¼ cup coconut oil melted and cooled slightly
  • 1 ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 180C (350F). Line baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Mix spelt flour, baking soda and sea salt in a large bowl.
  • In a separate bowl combine peanut butter, tahini, maple syrup, coconut oil and vanilla.
  • Pour the peanut butter mixture over the flour mixture and fold to combine.
  • Drop small rounded balls of dough (each of my dough balls were 15g-17g, or about a rounded ½ tablespoon) onto prepared baking tray.
  • Press down on each one gently with the back of a fork.
  • Bake for 10 minutes only (do not over-bake); the cookies will still be slightly soft but will harden as they cool.
  • Let cool for 15 minutes.

Notes

Preparation time does not include the time it would take to make your own peanut butter, as I did! You can replace the tahini with more peanut butter, if desired.
