Serves: 18 cookies
  • 8 Tbsp. grass-fed butter, softened (1 stick)
  • ¾ cup coconut sugar, plus extra for rolling

  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups buckwheat flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda

  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. ground ginger
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  4. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and beat on low speed until everything is combined.
