Buckwheat Cookies

Really? A sugar-free, wheat-free, dairy-free cookie that’s got a snap, a crunch, and a bit of sweet? This shortbread-like recipe uses buckwheat flour, a legume rather than a grain, but still manages to bring home the cookie while providing about three grams each of protein and MCT’s per cookie. Pull up a glass of nut milk and enjoy something out of the ordinary.
