I wanted some delicious cookies, but also nutritious ones.
So, I came up with this recipe for vegan oatmeal buckwheat cookies.
Vegan buckwheat cookies
- 2 cups buckwheat groats
- 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
- 1/2 cups sugar
- 1/2 cups room-temperature vegan butter
- 3/4 cups plant-based milk
- 1/2 cups chocolate chips
- Place the buckwheat groats into a blender or coffee grinder and blend for a few minutes until they transform into flour.
- 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.
Trust me, I made buckwheat cookies a couple of times. They tasted like buckwheat, not like normal cookies which you can enjoy.
But this recipe… is perfect. That is a huge reason why I must share with you this recipe.
For extra-deliciousness, I added some chocolate chips. Practically, these are vegan chocolate chips buckwheat cookies.
Why are these vegan buckwheat cookies so special?
- They are nutritious because of buckwheat and oats;
- Require only 6 ingredients;
- The ingredients are simple and accessible;
- The cookies are freezer-friendly;
- Perfect for kids and guests;
- An easy way to get some nutrients in your body (who wouldn’t like to eat cookies
How to store the buckwheat cookies?
- At room temperature for 3-4 days. Place a towel on top of them to keep them softer.
- Freeze them! You can freeze the buckwheat cookies in a container or reusable plastic bag for up to 4 months. When ready to serve, place them in the preheated to 175 C / 350 F oven for 3-5 minutes.
What can I use instead of chocolate chips?
There are plenty of options. You can even make them without any additional ingredients.
But, if you want, you can add:
- Nuts (walnuts, pecans, almonds)
- Seeds (sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds)
- Dried fruits (goji, apricots, figs, dates).
Is the recipe gluten free?
Yes, it’s gluten-free. Make sure to use certified gluten-free oats, so you are in the safe side.
Even if the word buckwheat suggests that these groats have wheat, they don’t. They are actually very healthy and, of course, gluten-free.
Can I use buckwheat flour instead of buckwheat groats?
Yes, you can do that. You will need around 1.5 cups of buckwheat flour for this particular recipe.
Follow the same instructions and the same measurements as for the buckwheat groats.
Don’t have enough buckwheat flour/groats?
Use half buckwheat flour and half all-purpose flour if you wish.
You would need around ¾ cups of each flour.
