Chocolate Gingerbread Spelt Cookies

Chocolate Gingerbread Spelt Cookies

Every year at Christmastime I get the itch to bake these chocolate gingerbread spelt cookies. They are my favorite Christmas flavor combination by far! These cookies are chewy, full of chocolate and loaded with spices. I absolutely love the combination of chocolate with gingerbread. I'll be sharing a Chocolate Gingerbread recipe soon inspired by these spelt flour cookies. I chose spelt flour because it is easier to digest and it is very light. I love baking with spelt flour and have been pleasantly surprised with the cookies, muffins and breads I've made using this ancient grain. 

1 stick Unsalted Butter(melted)

1/4 cup Unsulphured Molasses

1 inch Grated Fresh Ginger

1 Egg

1 1/2 cups Spelt Flour

1 tsp Baking Soda

1/2 cup Brown Sugar

1/4 cup Coconut Sugar

1 Tbs Cacao Powder

1 1/4 tsp Ground Ginger

1 tsp Ceylon Cinnamon

1/4 tsp Cloves

1/4 tsp Nutmeg

1 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

To make these Chocolate Gingerbread Spelt Cookies, mix the first four ingredients(wet) in your mixer or by hand with a whisk. In a separate bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients(dry) with a whisk. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet. I like to use the paddle attachment with my stand mixer. You can use a spatula if mixing by hand. Add in your chocolate chips. Using a small cookie scoop, place cookies on a non-stick cookie sheet about an inch and a half apart. Chill for 10 minutes in the freezer. I like to place the cookies on a cookie sheet, pop them in the freezer and set the oven to preheat at 325 degrees fahrenheit. Once the oven is ready, I pop the cookies into the oven for 12 minutes. Cool for at least 5 minutes before devouring.
