I am totally in love with these spicy whole grain cookies and was shocked when the rest of family liked them too.

Rye & Spelt Walnut Bread

Rye & Spelt Walnut Bread

What a pleasure it was to receive this delicious submission from the stylish German baking blog minimalista. I'm smitten with her toothsome healthy rustic rye and spelt bread:

"Oh, we Germans are so into all kinds of bread... We (I) love dark breads with rustic crust that taste strong and make you use your teeth... This particular one here is more the cheese and butter kind of bread. It contains two types of flour and olive oil and walnuts. A rustic type of bread, great with a cheese platter."

Balsamic Fudge Cookies

Balsamic Fudge Cookies

Nicole, the author of the A Dash of Compassion blog, has this to say about the awesome cookie recipe that she revamped from Fat Free Vegan to make use of oil rather than margarine, along with spelt flour and less sugar: "This original balsamic fudge cookie recipe is a healthy version of a fudgy, melt-in-your-mouth treat. It includes balsamic vinegar, which acts as an enhancer of the chocolate rather than a discreet flavour. It's amazing!"

Toasted Hickory Nut Butter Cookies

I love this recipe and story for these buttery crisp cookies made with spelt flour and hickory nuts (which are new to me too). Miss Megan bakes these delectable treats, and says: "The hickory nut imparts such amazing maple flavor. These cookies are a shortbread/butter cookie hybrid and are very addicting!"

Spelt Olive Oil Cake with Chocolate Chunks

Spelt Olive Oil Cake with Chocolate Chunks

Maybe it's my Mediterranean roots, or maybe it's the chocolate-loving healthy baker in me, but when I came across this cake, I was intrigued. When I learned that there was rosemary in it too, my taste-buds did a somersault and convinced my to keep reading. When I read about how utterly delicious it is, and how easy it is to make, I bookmarked it for later if you know what I mean. ;)

Banana Bliss Bread

Banana Bliss Bread

Because one can never have too many banana bread recipes, and because this one makes me want to marry it and carry its banana babies. Don't judge me.

Kahlua Nut-Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Kahlua Nut-Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

A hearty nut-butter cookie, made with healthy whole grain flours, a generous amount of Kahlua, and dark chocolate chips sounds like breakfast to me! These decadent (and arguably healthy) cookies come from the 5-star cookbook 500 Vegan Recipes.
