How To Make Spelt Flour, Oat and Coconut Breakfast Biscuits By Honest Mum

Updated post.

I love baking with spelt flour and these biscuits here have become an obsession in this house!

Both my eldest son and I follow a mostly gluten-free diet yet spelt flour despite having gluten content doesn’t seem to offer us the often negative effects of standard wheat.

Also a wholegrain, spelt flour has fantastic nutritional properties. It has fewer calories than standard wheat flour and is also higher in protein and easier to digest.

Cultivated since Roman times, it has been gaining increasing popularity as more people follow healthier diets.

Spelt flour is ideal for low-GI baking too so perfect for PCOS sufferers such as myself.

Plus unlike other flours such as quinoa flour, it can be used solo, unmixed with other flours.

Spelt flour has a slightly seed/nutty flavour too which really lends itself to baking and in particular, these incredibly delicious spelt flour, oats and coconut breakfast biscuits, which I know you guys will LOVE!

Ingredients

  • 2 large free-range eggs, beaten
  • 2 large tablespoons of cup coconut oil, melted
  • 50g coconut sugar
  • 160g whole spelt flour
  • 85g rolled oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • sprinkle of cinnamon

Method

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Cover a baking sheet with grease proof paper.

Whisk together the eggs and melted coconut oil in a medium sized bowl.

In a separate large bowl, mix the coconut sugar, spelt flour, oats, baking powder and cinnamon.

Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir.

When the dough becomes thick, knead it with your hands for about 1 minute.

Roll the dough out and use a medium sized cookie cutter to cut out your biscuits.

Place on the baking tray and add to the oven for 30 minutes or until they start to turn golden brown at the edges.

Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool completely.

    I’ve never heard of coconut sugar? Is normal sugar ok to use?

    I agree, spelt flour does has a lovely flavour doesn’t it. I’ve got some coconut sugar in the cupboard that I don’t know what to do with, I’m very tempted to make these as soon as I get home x

    I’ve never tried spelt flour and now I’m intrigued! What kind of recipes do you recommend using this flour for? Is it for more savory things?

    Thanks for sharing!

      Biscuits work just as well as savoury, we’ve mostly used it for sweet things but another commenter said they used it for pizza that was delicious, pies work well I hear too x

    Those look super delicious! I used to tolerate spelt too…although standard wheat made me feel rubbish. I haven’t tried it for a long time…perhaps I should give it a go although I am still being wary of grains in general since feeling much better without them! Great recipe.

      Thanks Vicki, I really digest spelt so much better but think you know your body best, Oliver is fine with it too, but you’re right it’s still a grain x

    These look great. We make similar ones but with wheat flour and they are always a big hit.

    My kids would think all their Christmases had come at once if I let them eat biscuits for breakfast…now I’m feeling like a very mean mummy! These do look delicious, though…maybe I should make an exception!!

    The cookies sound and look delicious. I’ve never baked with spelt flour before but have had a pizza base made with it and we found it to packed with so much flavour. Your recipe has reminded me how tasty it is, I’ll certainly have to try your cookies.

    Loving the breakfast biscuits. I think we have just about everything to make them except for the coconut oil, and I’ve been meaning to pick some of that up for ages. It’d make me feel a bit better about eating biscuits for breakfast. 😉 Thanks for hosting the linky.
