Do you need a delicious cookie recipe to share with Santa?
There’s no need to settle for stale chocolate this year… How about some delicious homemade cookies instead?
Like all of our homemade recipes, these tasty treats are packed with real food—pasture-raised eggs, grass-fed butter, dark chocolate, and just a few other simple ingredients is all it takes to make these delicious gluten-free, paleo-friendly cookies.
“What about buckwheat?” you might be wondering.
Despite it’s name, buckwheat isn’t actually related wheat, and isn’t even technically a grain.
Buckwheat is a gluten-free “pseudocereal.” It’s actually a seed with a toasty, nutty flavor, and it scores low to medium on the glycemic index.
It’s relatively low in phytic acid, a common inhibitor in grains and seeds known for impairing mineral absorption.
And it’s richer in minerals than common cereals like rice and corn, with high amounts of manganese as well as copper, magnesium, iron and phosphorus.
The magic happens when you refrigerate the batter overnight, and bake the cold dough.
This recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies is doubled so you’ll have plenty of cookies to share with friends and family, but feel free to halve the recipe.
These are so good, your family won’t believe they’re gluten-free.
