Usually, a couples of weeks before Xmas, I take a day off and spend the whole day in the kitchen baking Xmas “bredeles”. Those traditional Xmas biscuits from Germany, East of France. This day has become a Xmas tradition in our house hold. Unfortunately this won’t be happening this year. So I do my best and spread the baking over evenings and weekends. Here is a new recipe that I never tried before. It is a delight and has a lovely combination of some of the classic Xmas ingredients.

You will need:

  • 210 grams spelt flour
  • 100 grams millet flour
  • 150 grams cold butter
  • 80 grams coconut sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tea spoon baking soda
  • 1/2 tea spoon vanilla extract


For the coating

  • 70 grams chopped nuts
  • 50 grams grated chocolate

Pre-heat the oven 170 C (fan oven).

In a bowl sift the flours and add the sugar, baking soda and vanilla extract. Make a well in the center and crack the egg in. Mix roughly with a fork. Incorporate the butter diced and mix with your fingers until you are able to form a ball with the dough.

Make small balls and coat them in the mix nuts/chocolate.

Bake for about 12 min and let cool before enjoying them!
