  • 2 cups buckwheat groats

  • 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cups room-temperature vegan butter
  • 3/4 cups plant-based milk

  • Transfer the buckwheat flour into a big bowl and add the oats and sugar. Stir until combined.
  • Add in the butter, plant-based milk and chocolate chips. Mix again.
  • Refrigerate the batter if it is too sticky for 1 hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 175 C / 350 F.
  • Afterward, with your hands, take 1-2 tbsp of dough and form a cookie shape. The cookies will not spread, so you can place them in the tray with a relatively small distance between them (watch the video tutorial below for a better understanding).
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes (not longer!) at 175 C / 350 F.
  • When they are done, let them cool for 10 minutes (VIDEO BELOW)

Ingredients for vegan buckwheat cookies

  • Buckwheat groats – use unroasted buckwheat groats; roasted ones have a totally different taste.
  • Old fashioned rolled oats: the oats will help to soak in the extra moist of the cookies and they won’t be as sticky.
  • Sugar: white or brown.
  • Plant-based butter. Vegan room temperature butter.
  • Plant-based milk: I used soy milk for extra protein, but all of them work well for this recipe.
  • Chocolate chips: or nuts, seeds, dried fruits. You can also skip these ingredients at all.

In this particular recipe, you won’t feel the buckwheat. The cookies taste like real store-bought ones.

    I made these for a family where the mom is gluten free. Everyone liked them, and the youngest, who is a very fussy eater, LOVED them❣ I used avocado oil instead of vegan butter. I found the batter a bit bitter, so I added half a mashed banana,. The baked cookies were not bitter in the least. Delicious. Thank you very much!
