Number of Servings: 8


    2½ cups whole organic spelt flour
    ½ cup Sucanat (see the Care2 Directory of Natural Sweeteners for more about Sucanat or alternatives)
    1½ teaspoons baking powder
    ½ teaspoon baking soda
    ¼ teaspoon sea salt
    6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
    1 organic egg
    ½ cup organic buttermilk
    1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


1. Preheat oven to 400°F and line an ungreased baking pan with parchment.

2. Combine the spelt flour, Sucanat, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Add the butter and with a pastry blender or two knives, cut the butter in until it is well combined and resembles course crumbs.

3. In a separate bowl, lightly beat the egg and whisk in the buttermilk and vanilla. Add to the flour mixture and gently combine.

4. Drop the mixture into eight balls on to the baking pan several inches apart (they expand!).

5. Bake until golden, from 17 to 20 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean when inserted in the middle
