  • ¾ cup roasted buckwheat
  • 2 cups oat flour *see notes
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • Pinch ground cinnamon
  • ¾ cup crunchy peanut butter
  • ½ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon almond milk
  • roasted peanuts/peanut butter optional, for garnish


  • Put the buckwheat in your food processor and pulse until it forms a flour-like consistency. Transfer the buckwheat flour to a large bowl. Add the oat flour, salt and cinnamon to the bowl and stir to make sure everything is evenly mixed.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the crunchy peanut butter, maple syrup, and almond milk, Whisk the mixture until smooth and pour it into the large bowl along with the dry ingredients.
  • Using a rubber spatula, bring the mixture together before using your hands to knead the dough and make sure everything is evenly mixed. Place the dough between two sheets of parchment paper and use a rolling pin to roll it out to approximately ½ inch (1.25 cm) in thickness. Use a 2-inch (5-cm) cookie cutter to cut the cookies or you can use larger cutters if preferred and make fewer cookies.
  • Set the cookies aside in the fridge to set for 1 hour and garnish with some peanuts and a drizzle of peanut butter before serving.


  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.


  • To make your own oat flour from scratch, simple blend the rolled oats until finely ground.
