Healthy Spelt Oat Cookies

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes
Servings 30


  • 1 stick butter (115g)
  • 1/2 cup piloncillo/panela/raspadura (125g, raw cane sugar if you can't find it use coconut sugar)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup spelt flour (150g)
  • 1 1/4 cups quick cooking rolled oats (150g, not instant! If you can't find quick cooking use old fashioned)
  • milk chocolate chips (optional)


  1. In a small saucepan melt piloncillo with 1 Tbsp water over low heat stirring often. Once melted, add butter and melt while whisking.
  2. Once butter is completely melted and incorporated remove from heat and keep whisking for a couple of minute to cool down a bit (see video for how the consistency should be)
  3. In a large bowl whisk together spelt flour, baking powder and oats, then add butter/sugar mix and combine well.
  4. Place dough in glass container with airtight lid or wrap in clingfilm and place in the fridge for 10-15 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 300F (150°C).
  6. On a pastry mat or parchment paper taped to the work surface, roll out dough to about 1/4 inch (0.5cm) and cut out desired shape (I used one of these heart shaped cutters).
  7. Place cut out cookies on a non stick or parchment paper lined baking sheet leaving at least 1 finger distance between each of them.
  8. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  9. Let cool down completely to prevent from braking when removing from baking sheet.
  10. If desired, melt some chocolate and spread on cookies as shown on photos.
