Apple Buckwheat Chocolate Chip Cookies
Apple Buckwheat Chocolate Chip Cookies are tender, moist and packed with a variety of nutritious flavors. These cookies made out of fresh and juicy apples, whole grain buckwheat flour and some vegan chocolate chips. These cookies are absolutely guilt free and kids’ friendly too.
In a frying pan combine apples, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Cook in a medium flame stirring at intervals until apples are soft. Turn off the flame and let it cool down.
In a small bowl combine flax meal and water. Stir and let it soak until fluffy. (about 5-10 minutes).
Preheat oven at 400 degree Fahrenheit and prepare a cookie sheet with a parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl combine buckwheat flour, baking powder and salt. Mix very well until no lumps are left.
In a blender spoon the cooked apples along with the syrup and blend it smooth.
Combine the blended apples into the soaked flax meal and stir nicely until well mixed.
Fold in the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and whip with a spoon until the batter is light and fluffy but thick.
Lastly, fold in chocolate chips. With the help of a cookie scoop/ice cream scoop place round shaped cookies on the cookie sheet. Place the cookie sheet in the middle rack of the oven and bake for 20 minutes.
Take out the cookie sheet and let the cookies cool down completely.
- Make sure to use red delicious apples that absolutely sweet in taste. Sour apples will make the cookies sour.
- I used Bob’s Red Mill dark colored buckwheat flour for this recipe.
- These cookies are soft and chewy and grainy too because of the flax meal.
