Buckwheat Chocolate Chip Cookies
Warm from the oven buckwheat chocolate chip cookies.
There are cookies to bake.
And these are gluten-free.
But I'll be honest.
Baking egg-free, butter-free, gluten-free cookies (that actually taste tempting) can be tough. So if you- or an angel you love- are allergic to one- or several- of the top food allergens, or consciously living GF/CF for ASD reasons, just know I'm in the weird and rocky boat with you.
Which is why I keep experimenting and tweaking recipes.
And if the butter-eating glutenous In Crowd doesn't get it, I say, You know what, Pizza Breath? Just go eat your Twinkies, will ya?
Karina's Gluten-Free Buckwheat Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
Buckwheat flour? In a cookie? Affirmative. Sweet and nutty buckwheat flour is higher in protein and fiber than typical gluten-free flours. And it has no metallic aftertaste like the legume flours many folks turn to for boosting protein in GF baked goodies. Just make sure your source for buckwheat flour is truly gluten-free and milled with no cross-contamination issues. Make sure it tests well below the PPM allowed for gluten-free status. Call the company to be sure. Or join Gluten-Free Watchdog for updates on the latest product testing.
If you prefer real butter- that works, too!
My latest batch of these cookies: I added a tablespoon of honey and it boosted flavor and texture to a new level. Honey- and vegan raw agave nectar- act as a humectant. Try adding a tablespoon to your baking recipes.
