Buckwheat-flakes Cookies

Buckwheat-flakes Cookies

I love chocolate, cakes and all other sweets but I am not a big fan of dry, sandy cookies or dry and tough croissants with a very long list of ingredients. Refined sugar makes me feel exhausted. This is why I try to bake most of my sweet snacks by myself. As much as possible, I chose for mildly refined ingredients; I prefer to use entire grains or flakes instead of white flours. I never add sugar to my bake snacks, fruits are an excellent alternative to that. But still, I am glad that ready gluten free snacks are available at shops at any time and whenever we want them. Not always am I able to make them by myself. You surely know the joy of spotting a glutenfree snack during a travel or a long shopping day in the city :-)

I encourage you to try this easy and quick recipe for homemade cookies/snacks made of buckwheat flakes with fruits. They are absolutely tasty-licious!
