I will see if I can find some raw spelt tomorrow...if not, some raw buckwheat.
You say:
"and fp till throughly blended"
What is "fp"? Food Process (like run in a processor)?
Then you say:
'Form 1/2 inch thick 1X2 inch rectangles on “D†sheets'
What are "D" sheets?
Thanks a lot!

I made these and they where SO yummy! I used agave instead of stevia and raisins soaked in maple syrup instead of dates as I didn't have at home. I also used a mix of spelt and oat, as I didn't have enough spelt...
Today, I'll try a variation: Pumpkin Wheat and Oat Blueberry-Lemon Tea Cakes... Yum! wanna post picture soon :)
Thank you so much for sharing... I'm so happy when I can find dessert recipes that are are packed with nuts!

Pumpkin Pecan Cinnamon Cranberry Spelt Tea Cakes

5 out of 5

I made these yesterday and they are great!
I substituted the spelt with buckwheat and stevia with argave and they turned out brilliantly. I love cinnamon so sprinkled loads on top too before dehydrating.
Will definitley be making these again.

The cranberries required that amount of stevia with the dates... I can only imagine it was way too much for the raisins... Whenever we substitute a sweet for a tart then we also have to adjust the added sweetener...
Leafekat~ Did you forget the 6 dates with the stevia???
I use more cinnamon than most for the anti-diabetic effect... Sorry!!!

This is good so far. We did raisins instead of cranberries. Also, the next time I make it I would cut back on the cinn. and stevia. I would use about 2 tsp. cinn. and about 1-2 stevia then add more if needed.
Updated- this is good if you can stand the aftertaste of the stevia. Next time I will use agave or dates.

QTLayla~ I would think the quinoa or buckwheat would work, haven't tried them... I have tried to make a dough out of millet and it didn't work too well...
Happy Halloween all you wonderful people, "my friends" on goneraw!!!

These look so delicious and pretty too. I used to do teas and am looking to do vegan and mostly raw teas now. This would certainly fit the bill! Thanks.

theduke - flour usually isn't raw because it gets heated when being processed, I think. She is talking about whole spelt - soak it, sprout it & use it in the recipe.
waterbaby - these look good! What "soak water" are you talking about using? The only thing I see soaked in the recipe was the spelt.

This may seem like a silly question, but when you say 'spelt' do you mean spelt flour or can I buy spelt by itself? I'm new to this raw things and often find myself confused with technicalities and wording.. :) thanks!

if you can right click on your picture and there is an edit option it might let you down size it which might able you to use the photo, but its just a possibility, idk for certain.

hi waterbaby...i could not wait to make these :), so i had to make some substitutes...i used sprouted, dehydrated spelt flour, and carrots in place of the pumpkin, and only dates for sweetness..i just dehydrated them until the outside was dry,but the inside was still moist....they are so tasty!!!thank you for the recipe:)

Hey JoAnne, awesome photo of yours!! You look great! I love your statement on your profile :)) oh so true!! I am not on MySpace but on Facebook... like to get in touch or send me an e-mail :)) I also would love to see an image of these cookies... had not so much luck with raw pumpkin... got a buttercup here and would like to try again but what I did so far always had this 'raw' pumpkin taste if you know what I mean... just not pleasant... I tried acorn before but it just did not do it... Love to see those cookies :)) thanks
