Chocolate Peanut Butter Spelt Cookies

I am a chocolate chip cookie fan. Mmmmm....chocolate chip cookies.... I need a recipe that isn't quite so guilty though, so I played around with a recipe to make one that is somewhat more nutritious. Start with a half cup of chocolate pieces. I use Lindt Couverture for extravagance. Melt in the microwave until almost melted. Add in 1 3/4 cups peanut butter. I used up the last of chunky and some smooth. Then melt those together for another 30 - 60 seconds or so to melt the peanut butter. Stir part way through. My crunchy peanut butter was organic and had gone hard and separated so it didn't melt down but that's ok, it will get blended it just fine. Next stir in 1 3/4 cups brown sugar, 2 eggs and 2 tsp vanilla. They will get fully blended in later. In your mixer bowl, combine 2 1/4 cups spelt flour,  1/2 cup rolled oats, 1 tsp baking soda and 1 tsp salt. Oops, spilled salt into the brown sugar! Had to scoop out a bit and add it in.
