We’re going to get baked AND grilled today. I use sprouted spelt flour as my all-purpose flour at home for the most part. This recipe for easy grilled spelt flatbreads is one I turn to often–mostly within the context of pizza though. I only do the homemade pizza thing when it’s warm enough to grill (and since I’m Canadian, “warm enough” is anything above zero). My opinion is that VERY high cooking temperatures are necessary for good pizza and I feel a lot better about pushing my BBQ to 600° than my oven. Since this isn’t a pizza blog (tears), I thought I’d show off the simple goodness of this go-to dough as a flatbread today….

Just because I take a vested interest in my health and I identify as a vegan, doesn’t mean I don’t want to eat cookies for breakfast like everyone else (and pizza for every other meal, duh!). I mean, I put chocolate in these so they might be a bit indulgent for the early am hours, but I’ve never let that stop me before. They really would be appropriate any old time.

Think of this treat as the happy marriage between sesame snaps and a wholesome granola bar. Plus chocolate, because why not? I’m the biggest hippie-dip I know, so maybe it goes without saying that I’ve tried a lot of homemade granola bar formulations over the years. At this point I’ve figured out what works to achieve ideal snack bar traits: chewy, light crispness, varying texture, well-bound, and one indulgent aspect. No joke: this sesame snap granola bar is the best I’ve ever made.

Once November hits, I’m craving ginger and other spice-y baked goods like crazy (but also brown liquor, duh–healthiest diet ever). The pumpkin frenzy has certifiably died down and holiday desserts/the all-surrounding themes of spice, peppermint, citrus, cranberries etc. can start to go into full effect. My favourite cookie of all time, actually, is a double chocolate and candied ginger-studded number from a local bakery. Chocolate and spice together has always made sense to me, and when I saw a recipe for flax gingerbread muffins on Post Punk Kitchen, I knew I needed something similar with gooey chocolate chunks. But also in a snack-size cake form with some kind of sweet glaze (have you guys maybe noticed that I’m kind of into glaze?).
