Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Craving a cookie and wanting to make something without eggs, I found this recipe on for a chocolate chip cookie made with spelt flour.  I love using spelt flour.  I’ve used it often recently in things like banana bread and muffins and they always turn out so nice!

This cookie sounded promising  It was sweetened with maple syrup, made with Smart Balance Chunky Peanut Butter and no eggs.  :)  It wasn’t entirely vegan because I didn’t use vegan chocolate chips – but I’m not that picky!  :)  I was not disappointed.  The only problem I had with these cookies was I could not stop eating them.  I took them to work to get rid of them and still got into them.  Bad me!  You don’t have to not be eating eggs or dairy to make these in any way – you actually should make them because they are good for you AND yummy!  You just need to exercise more self control than I did over them.  😉

    These look tasty!

    Does spelt flour add some nutritional value or what's the low-down?
    Is there a big taste difference?

    I'm tempted to try whole wheat flour, but maybe spelt flour is where it's at.
