Foodie Friday Recipe: Sprouted Peanut Butter Cookies

Try this tasty twist on peanut butter cookies for a sweet, chewy homemade treat!

Yum! Who doesn’t love chewy, doughy, sweet & salty peanut butter cookies?

This version uses a minimal amount of sprouted spelt flour, plus all-natural peanut butter, raw sugar, and maple syrup for a delicious, nutty, all-natural treat that’s so much better – and better for you – than any cookies you can buy!

Top them with a sprinkle of flake sea salt to bring out the sweet nuttiness, and add a pretty sparkle.
