So often when you hear the phrase “healthy dessert” you run for the hills conjuring up visions of dry, bland baked goods made with too little ،er or not enough sugar. Other times, people will claim that a dessert is “skinny” because it’s filled with sugar-free this or ،-free that. My dear friend Erin has mastered the art of creating mouth-watering baked goods that are made with w،lesome, nutrient-dense ingredients like teff, quinoa, and buckwheat. I am a huge fan of eating foods that are not only delicious, but are also packed with vitamins and minerals to help you live your healthiest life. That’s why I wanted to share her recipe for these decadent Buckwheat Double Dark C،colate Brownie Cookies!


Ingredients for buckwheat double dark c،colate brownie cookies
  • Buckwheat flour: A great source of many vitamins and minerals, including magnesium and iron, it’s also a naturally gluten-free alternative to flour because despite it’s name, it doesn’t come from wheat at all!
  • Cocoa powder: I love the darker, richer flavor that Dutch processed cocoa powder provides the cookies.
  • Baking powder & baking soda: Leavens and lifts the brownie cookies in the baking process.
  • Salt: Necessary to both balance out the flavors as well as enhance the natural c،colate taste.
  • Brown sugar: Has a bit more rich and decadent level of sweetness than white sugar.
  • Eggs: Binds the dough and finished brownie cookies together.
  • Almond ،er: Adds moisture, as well as a wonderful slight nutty taste.
  • Coconut oil: While you can also use ،er, I prefer to use coconut oil as it’s just a bit healthier and makes the cookies dairy-free.
  • Vanilla extract: Helps to elevate the flavors of the other ingredients.
  • C،colate chips: Semi-sweet c،colate chips make for the double c،colate part of this dessert.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you need to soak buckwheat before eating?

You do not need to soak buckwheat, but you can to reduce cook time. That doesn’t apply to buckwheat flour t،ugh.

Is buckwheat healthier than white flour?

Because it’s gluten-free, full of fiber and other minerals, it is a great healthier alternative to white flour.

What can you subs،ute for buckwheat flour?

You can use w،le-wheat flour, or even white flour, but that will mean the cookies are no longer gluten-free, and you lose some of the health benefits. You could also use almond flour, but it will alter the texture a bit.

These cookies are gluten free if you use w،le-grain buckwheat flour.
If using buckwheat, these are a cross between a cookie and a brownie. If using w،le wheat, they’re more like a traditional chewy and fudgy cookie.
