A real quick recipe to make for 3 o'clock munchies. It's from Lorraine Pascal's A Lighter Way to Bake (HarperColins, 2013).

50g butter, softened
50g brown sugar
1 egg
100g spelt flour
50g ground almonds
50g cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla extract
flaked almonds

Preheat the oven to 180C. Line a baking sheet with baking paper.

Mix butter and sugar well in a bowl until smooth and well combined. Add egg and mix. Then add rest of ingreds and mix together to form a crumbly mixture. Then bring dough together with your hands to form a ball.

Divide dough into 12 even pieces. Roll each piece into a ball and flatten onto the baking sheet. Top with flaked almonds.

Bake for 10-12 mins, rotating the tray at 7 mins. Leave to cool on the tray for a few mins before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
