Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place racks in the top half of the oven. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

  • Combine spelt flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium mixing bowl.

  • Combine peanut butter, maple syrup, olive oil, and vanilla extract in a separate, larger bowl; stir well. Pour in the flour mixture and stir until barely combined and still a little dry. Let sit for 5 minutes.

  • Give dough another good stir. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheets. Press each cookie down gently.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until edges appear set, 10 to 11 minutes. Avoid overbaking or cookies may become dry. Let cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to cooling racks.

Cook's Note:

You can make the cookies very large or just make little tea cookies, too. Just be sure to watch them as they bake.
