Be cool. Make conversation starter cookies. Buckwheat cookies? What’s a buckwheat cookie? where do you even get buckwheat? (Amazon is a good place) Is it like regular wheat? (no, it’s not – for starters, buckwheat is gluten-free.)
I put chocolate chips, white chips, and pecan pieces in this batch of cookies, and I think craisins would also make an excellent addition. You could use raisins too, but I only eat raisins if I’m being force-fed. And I haven’t been force-fed since toddlerhood. So there’s that.
P.S. This makes a pretty small batch, but that’s okay, because it easily doubles and triples.
P.P.S If you don’t want to bake, try making healthy no-bake cookies. You won’t regret it.Print
