Anita's Corner

Sprouted spelt and almond butter cookiesQuite often you come across a recipe that just becomes an instant family favourite. It’s one of those recipes that when found in a book, it immediately falls open at the correct page and that page is covered in splashes; dirty finger marks and chocolate stains because it has been used so often. This is one of those recipes in our house. You can use our regular Fine Grind Spelt Flour or All Purpose Spelt Flour instead of the Sprouted Spelt Flour if you wish.Enjoy! ~J
