A good recipe and the first time I have used Spelt flour and I was pleased with the result. Like Mead I substituted golden syrup (no honey) but I did use the sunflower oil and a full teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda (no baking powder). The measure is the one for my bread machine and no bitter taste with a full measure. The second batch I tweaked the recipe by adding a little less syrup and adding a half teaspoon of ground ginger. Made into 16 balls this gave a slightly thicker biscuit - like 'ginger nuts'.

You can make these vegan by substituting the honey for either Carob syrup, coconut nectar or maple syrup and they will still be lovely. I made them today with carob syrup and light olive oil instead of the sunflower oil, yum!

Thought I would try this recipe, sifted the spelt flour and baking powder together, (used a scant tsp as 1 reviewer seemed to think it made a bitterness) I then discovered I didn't have any sunflower oil so used butter and rubbed this in, then I substituted golden syrup for the honey.
These were yummy McYum, had a few hot from the oven with a coffee... Mmm.

Following Meem's advice above, I only put just over 1/2 tsp of baking powder and they are delicious! Thank you for cheering us up during the current social isolation period.

Good recipe. Tasty cookies but had a very dry bitter aftertaste. I think the quantity of baking powder is too much. I will try half teaspoon next time.

Quick, tasty and very addictive. I had almonds so I used them instead of pecan.
A real winner.
