FYI: I’ve found organic spelt flour in Marks & Spencer for only £2 a bag, you can also get it in big supermarkets/health food shops.
Try to use organic fruit and dairy products where possible in this recipe.
-15g baking powder
-125g softened butter
-1 medium egg
-100g dark chocolate (Go as dark as your taste allows & use unrefined sugar/ diabetic friendly as needed but be weary of artificial sweeteners e.g aspartame, sucralose etc which can alter good gut bacteria)
-Zest of 2 large oranges
-Approx 350g strawberries
-1 tspn orange extract
Add the baking powder, salt & zest to the flour & stir.
Cube the butter then rub the butter into the flour with your fingertips.
Chop the chocolate and berries into small chunks then add to the flour mix and give it a quick stir.
Beat the egg & orange extract into the milk then add this to the dry ingredients and mix everything together gently with a spatula, don’t over mix or use an electric beater for this part otherwise they can end up very dense.
Tear off handfuls of dough, shape into balls and place onto baking parchment then bake at 180C for approx. 20 mins.
Then eat them quick before the kids get their hands on them!! xx
