Chocolate Chip Test No. 9-Whole Grain Cookies

June 8, 2019

To be honest, the idea of chocolate chip cookies made with whole grains doesn't sound that appetizing. But after stumbling across this instagram post of a mouth-watering cookie made with spelt, I thought I could be persuaded otherwise.
I turned to my friend with the grain mill to grind some spelt for me (also the one who helped me procure some rye flour for these brownies). Googling has showed me that you can purchase spelt flour from King Arthur Flour or other health stores online. But you can find spelt in its whole grain form in health food stores. (I've never actually consumed spelt in its whole grain form).

The Recipe: Spelt Dark Chocolate Cookies from Butter and Brioche
Recipe Highlights: 
  • requires a food scale since all her measurements are in grams
  • no need to wait for butter to come to room temp--this uses melted butter
  • uses equal amounts of all purpose and spelt flour
  • requires chill time of 30-60 mins for dough before baking
  • rippled edges are created by dropping the pan on the cooking rack in the oven just before the cookies are done baking. (done 3 times)
Overall: I could barely tell that these cookies were made with whole grains. There might have been the tiniest hint of a grittiness in the texture but the flavor was that of a non-whole grain cookie. I particularly loved the strong vanilla flavor in these cookies. Soft and totally delicious! 🍪🍪🍪🍪
