Quick Gluten-Free Oatmeal-Buckwheat Cookies Recipe

Cookies, Blueberries, Bowl, Delicious, Dessert, Food

If you follow this blog, you know that I have come to rely on Buckwheat Crispies as a major all-purpose GF ingredient. In this recipe I have ground it up in a coffee bean grinder into a fine flour (you can actually grind the groats in your high speed mixer into a flour as well if you don't want to soak and dehydrate your buckwheat).  These are a fine, sweet, substantial, fairly soft cookie.  If I'd had any GF chocolate chips around, I would have added them!

Preheat oven to 350F.

Put the following into a Food Processor:

*1/2 C. Virgin Coconut Oil (doesn't have to be melted)
*1 C. Granulated Sweetener (I used a combination of Palm Sugar & Stevia)
*1 Vegan Egg (1 T. Flax seed, ground, and mixed into 3 T. warm water)
*1 tsp. Vanilla
*1 C. Buckwheat Crispie "Flour" (Crispies ground in Coffee Bean Grinder or Blender)
*1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
*1/2 tsp. Double-acting Baking Powder
*Pinch of Celtic Sea Salt (or to taste)
*1 C. Gluten-Free Quick Rolled Oats

Mix until a nice, fragrant batter.  Hand-mix in any of the following if you desire:
*3/4 C. GF Chocolate Chips
*1 tsp. Grated Orange Rind
*1/2 C. Raisins
*1 C. Shredded Coconut (unsweetened)

Drop the cookies 2" apart on a silicone sheet or well-greased cookie sheet.  Bake about 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.  I cool on racks.  Try not to eat them all before you remove from the racks. : )

  1. Thanks for supporting the gluten free family.

  2. Hey, no problem! I especially love gluten-free oatmeal! ~Cynthia

  3. I made these cookies and I think that they are good. I made some with and without raisins. I used the cookies without raisins to make DF/GF ice cream sandwiches, with coconut milk ice cream and enjoy life chocolate chips. They were very good. The only sub I made was to use 1/2 homemade lard for the oil. I am now making them for the second time.

  4. excellent-- but you are kidding about the lard, right? :)
