Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup buckwheat groats
  • 3/4 cup raw almond butter
  • 1 cup pitted medjool dates
  • 1 vanilla bean, scraped*
  • 2 tablespoons coconut butter
  • Large flake sea salt for garnishing (optional)

Instructions

  • Add the buckwheat groats to a food processor and process for 3-4 minutes or until a fine flour forms. It's okay if the flour isn't perfectly fine -- larger pieces will add more texture to your cookies.
  • Add in the raw almond butter, dates, caviar from the vanilla bean, and coconut butter. Pulse several times and then process for 1-2 minutes.
  • Roll the mixture into 14 balls and drop onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Using a fork, press the balls into cookies while making a crisscross pattern. Sprinkle the cookies with large grain sea salt, such as Maldron.
  • Pop the cookie sheet in the freezer for 20-30 minutes to set the cookies. Remove from freezer and indulge!
  • You can store the cookies in either the freezer or refrigerator. The freezer will add a snap when biting in and the refrigerator will keep the cookies firm but tender.

Notes

*Substitute a splash of pure vanilla extract if you don't care about keeping this recipe raw.
