These classic chocolate chip cookies are made only with oat and spelt flour and don’t contain an enormous amount of sugar. They’re perfectly soft and light on the inside, but with crispy edges on the outside.
They have only four tablespoons of sugar, but I think it’s just enough. A combination of a good quality chocolate and walnuts tastes like heaven. It gives a rich taste to the cookies, so there’s no need to use too much sugar.
I hope you’ll love these cookies as much as I do!
