Ingredients

  • 5 cups Arrowhead Mills Organic Spelt Flour may need up to six and a half cups
  • ½ cup ground flax seed
  • 1 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 1 ¼ cups molasses look for unsulphured varieties
  • 1 ½ tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons fresh ginger peeled and minced
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips or semi-sweet baking chocolate

Instructions

Cookies

  • Preheat the oven to 375˚F. 
  • Whisk together coconut oil, coconut sugar, eggs and molasses. 
  • In a separate bowl, mix together 5 cups of flour and dry ingredients
  • Combine wet with dry, and mix well. Knead in more flour by hand if the dough is too sticky. ⁠
  • Sandwich a tennis ball sized amount of dough between two pieces of parchment paper, and roll it out about ¼” thick. 
  • Use your cookie cutters, and then transfer the parchment to a cookie sheet. Repeat this step until you have 2 cookies of each size. 
  • Bake for 5-15 minutes depending on the size of the cookie. 

Tree Assembly

  • Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Feel free to add 1-2 tablespoons coconut oil if the chocolate is very thick. ⁠
  • Place some melted chocolate on a cake board, and then place one cookie. 
  • Layer chocolate and cookies.
  • We put chocolate and slivered almonds on the corners of all the cookies but you can decorate how you’d like!

Notes

Use slivered almonds, candy, or dried fruit, plus a little extra chocolate for decoration.
