These Spiced Chocolate Chestnut Cookies are the perfect dunking treat. With already one half of the cookie dunked in melted chocolate, the other half is waiting to be dunked in your tea or coffee! Using a healthier alternative to white flour, I chose to use spelt flour instead with almond butter and maple syrup adding to the healthy substitutes.

With a flavor combination of cooked chestnuts, cinnamon, coffee, cardamom, ginger and cloves, dipped in dark chocolate and sprinkled with spicy chili flakes, while the cookie melts, the flavors will be exploding!
