Buckwheat Gingerbread Cookies

This is one of my all time favorite holiday cookies to bake! The only thing missing is finding a way to decorate them with healthy ingredients... does anyone have any tips?!


100g butter (about 8 tbsp)

2 eggs

1/4 cup maple syrup

1/4 cup coconut sugar

1 tbsp blackstrap molasses

1 tbsp cinnamon

1 tsp cardamom

1 tsp ginger

1/2 tsp ground cloves

1 tsp baking soda

1 + 3/4 cup buckwheat flour


1. In a pot put the maple syrup, coconut sugar and spices to boil until it becomes a syrup and turn off heat.

2. Stir in the butter.

3. Add the eggs and baking soda.

4. Mix it all together and place in fridge for a few hours or overnight. (If you leave it overnight you will need to take out for a few minutes because it will be very hard)

5.Preheat oven to 200F

6. Roll the dough with a rolling pin and cut with gingerbread cookie cutter shapes.

7. Bake for 5 minutes.
