Gluten-Free + Vegan Recipe | Buckwheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

by Vegan Housewives on December 24, 2013

IE131214001 With colder temps reaching most of the country by now, many of us are craving comfort foods. And what’s more comforting than chocolate chip cookies? (The answer: nothing!). Here’s a gluten-free and vegan twist on the classic recipe.

I’ve tried many recipes, and this formula works for me every time! It’s sweet but still healthy – with good-for-you maca and flax and a bit of indulgent chocolate amazingness, it’s a perfect balance! With this recipe in hand, you can satisfy that need for something tasty and warm to snack on while you hibernate but still feel good about it!



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease a large glass baking pan with 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil.
  3. In medium mixing bowl, mix brown rice flour, buckwheat, ground flax, maca powder, sugar, and water. If dough is not supple enough, mix in a bit more water, one tablespoon at a time. After mixing into a well-formed dough, mix in chocolate chips.
  4. Form small tablespoon-size balls of dough on baking pan. Flatten cookies slightly with a fork.
  5. Bake cookies for at least 13 minutes. Once the edges brown, take them out to cool.

Enjoy with a big glass of non-dairy milk!
