Salted Peanut Butter Buckwheat Cookies

Salted Peanut Butter Buckwheat Cookies

Amelia Karg
How cute are these salted peanut butter Christmas cookies?
Not only are they really easy to make, they’re vegan, gluten free and taste absolutely yummy.
The cookies are slightly savoury and crumbly and combined with the dark but sweet chocolate it’s amazing.
I love using buckwheat flour as it is this a naturally gluten-free, high protein flour is so versatile and deliciously nutty.
Making these really helped me get in the festive mood, love cookies at Christmas! We’re off to Spain again for Christmas this year and I can’t wait to get there and relax, cook, and walk in the beautiful mountains.

Ingredients
  

  • Cookies
  • 1/2 Cup Peanut Butter
  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Oil melted
  • 1/4 Cup Maple Syrup Coconut Syrup or Rice Malt Syrup

  • 2 Teaspoons Almond Essence
  • 2 Cups Buckwheat Flour
  • 2 Tablespoons Lacuma Optional
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Himalayan Salt

Instructions
 

  • Pre-heat the oven 180° C and line two baking trays with waxed baking paper.

  • Add in the water and mix again to form a dough. If it’s too crumbly keep adding in a little water until it comes together.
