Inspired by the gorgeous rye and cacao cookies I had at Copenhagen airport I created these banana, cacao and buckwheat cookies. Ok so I’ve used buckwheat instead of rye because I love it and added banana to make them lower fat and add natural sweetness but I think I’ve captured the essense.
You probably know how much I like buckwheat? It’s my favourite grain as I love it’s lovely nutty flavour, high protein content and as an added bonus it’s gluten free. I use it to make pancakes and flatbreads regularly however I don’t usually use it to make sweets but I thought the texture and flavour would work really well in these cookies. So here it is my banana, buckwheat, raw cacao cookies with tahini caramel. Happy days!!
These deliciously moist and cunchy cookies are packed full of healthy ingredients and naturally gluten free, you could also omit the nut butter if you wanted a nut free cookie.
The tahini caramel sauce adds some sweetness and nuttyness which is so good! The caramel would also be amazing mixed into porridge or nice cream.
These cookies are delicious on their own but I think they would be even better with some coconut yogurt.
