  • ½ cup buckwheat flour
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoon cacao powder
  • ¼ cup water or milk I used water
  • 1 tablespoon coconut buttermilk any buttermilk works here
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil or any oil or butter for non-vegan version
  • 1 teaspoon flaxseed powder
  • ½ teaspoon dry ginger powder
  • teaspoon baking soda
  • teaspoon salt


  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
  • While the oven is heating up, take flax seed powder, brown sugar, salt, coconut oil, coconut buttermilk into a mixing bowl and mix everything well.
  • To this mixture, now add water or milk and whisk it well. Keep this wet mixture aside.
  • Take a sieve, add buckwheat flour to it.
  • Then add cacao powder, baking soda, and dry ginger powder.
  • Sift and mix everything well so that all ingredients are combined well.
  • Now add sifted flour mixture to the wet mixture in 3 parts and prepare cookie batter.
  • The batter will be a little runny and pouring consistency.
  • Line a baking sheet and pour a tablespoon of batter on it the baking sheet. 
  • Keep the baking tray in the middle rack of the oven and bake the cookies for 12 minutes at 180 degrees C.
  • Different ovens behave differently, so it's good to look at the cookies at around 10 minutes of baking time to avoid burning the cookies.
  • Once done, take the baking tray out of the open and let the cookies cool down a bit.
  • Store the cooled cookies in an airtight jar and enjoy them with a glass of milk or as they are.
