Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole spelt flour
  • ½ cup fine oat bran
  • ½ cup ground toasted macadamia nuts
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • ⅓ cup liquid coconut oil
  • ⅓ cup agave nectar + ¼ cup to drizzle
  • ¼ cup brewed tea
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ cup berries, chopped if necessary

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl mix spelt flour, oat bran, nuts, baking powder and sea salt.
  3. Combine oil, ⅓ cup agave nectar, tea and vanilla in a small bowl. Pour into flour mixture and stir gently.
