  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ chopped nuts Optional- walnut, almond (60g-2.1 oz)

  • Shape Cookies: using a spoon or cookie scoop, drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them apart.
  • Bake to Perfection: bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Keep in mind that buckwheat cookies may appear darker than traditional cookies.
  • Cool and Enjoy: allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy the nutty goodness!
