I know the title is a mouthful...but you will also be stuffing your mouth with these cookies after making them!
This recipe came about because had buckwheat flour in my pantry and wanted cookies! I love how buckwheat gives things a nutty flavor, so I thought why not try it in a peanut butter cookie!
These cookies fulfill that cookie craving and they have a healthy spin too! This recipe cuts down the amount of refined flour because of the gluten-free buckwheat flour I use. I still have regular flour in the recipe, but it is a lot less than regular cookies. This cookie dough also also utilizes coconut sugar, which has a lower glycemic index than regular sugar. However, if you do not need to watch your sugar, you can use light brown sugar as a substitute.
Be sure to grab your glass of milk and dunk away! A little trick I do with these cookies are heat them in the microwave for 10 seconds before consumption. Trust me…it makes them extra yummy!
Makes: 10-11 Large Cookies
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1 cup Buckwheat Flour
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp All Purpose Flour
1/2 cup Packed Brown Sugar (I used Trader Joes brand)
1/2 cup Coconut Sugar (or light brown sugar if you aren’t watching your sugar intake)
1/3 cup Canola Oil
1/4 Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
1/2 cup Peanut Butter
1/2 cup Dark Chocolate Chips
1/2 cup Peanut Butter Chips (I used Reese's brand)
Non-Stick Spray Oil
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl, besides the chocolate chips/peanut butter chips, until it is a uniform mixture.
3. Fold in the chocolate chips and peanut butter chips. Mix until the chips are evenly distributed in the cookie dough.
4. Spray your cookie sheets with non-stick spray oil. Using a table spoon, scoop out 2 tbsps of cookie dough per cookie and using another spoon to help place it on the sheet. Lightly press down each cookie…they do not spread that much. Should be about 1/4 - 1/2 inch thick.
5. Bake for 31 minutes or until the outsides are semi-firm and a crust has formed around the edges.
6. Let cool for 6-7 min to firm up completely. Consume immediately with your favorite milk beverage or store in an air-tight bag. If storing in the fridge, they will firm up more, but I actually like them this way. If I go for a cookie later in the week, I like to throw it in the microwave for a few seconds. This makes them warm and softens them slightly. If you really want to go crazy, you can also put a little vanilla ice cream or dairy-free ice cream on top!
