buckwheat: it’s a fruit (similar to rhubarb + sorrel) not a grain, so there is NO gluten; and it’s high in fiber.
I’ve been wanting to experiment with buckwheat so I took a stab at cookies (duh) and this is what we have: buckwheat peanut butter cookies.
BUCKWHEAT PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES
1 cup all-natural, no sugar added, no salt added, peanut butter
1/2 cup coconut crystals
3/4 cup buckwheat meal (made this by processing buckwheat groats until mealy)
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
pinch salt (if using unsalted peanut butter)
1. Process buckwheat until mealy. Add coconut crystals and process again.
2. Add everything else EXCEPT the eggs and process again.
3. Add the eggs (you want to avoid over processing, so process until they come together into a dough)
4. Bake at 350 for 11 minutes.
