When I think of classic flavour combos, chocolate and pecans has to be up there as a favourite. These cookies are reminiscent of Turtles but without the unpronounceable additives that manufactured food is packed with. Eating healthier does not mean life without cookies but it does mean life without a mouthful of god knows what. It’s actually pretty easy when you think about it! 🙂 Enjoy the treats, just make them yourself and use the best ingredients you can find.

Have you ever baked using different types of flours? I’ve done quite a bit of experimenting with grains of all kinds, as well as almond flours and even coconut flour. I always come back to spelt flour. Luckily I don’t suffer from any gluten allegies so I have a bit more freedom in that arena.

Spelt is one of the oldest crops in human history and has a whole host of fabulous benefits. For one, it’s high in fibre which aids i you digestion. Nice. Secondly, it contains iron. I battle with low iron levels and any help that department is always welcome.

I also recommend lightly toasting those pecans first. It brings out that special something in the nuts giving them that warm crunch against the soft cookie. Mmmmm …. can’t you just taste them?

And don’t get me started on the melty chocolate. I actually got to enjoy it twice. Firstly, hot gooey chocolate straight out of the oven and then again the next morning when I warmed them slightly for this photo shoot.

And yes, I had those styled cookies for breakfast. No shame my friends. Remember all that fibre? 😉
