This Gluten-Free Buckwheat Chocolate Chip Cookie is delicious and healthy! So you can enjoy a nutritionally packed gluten-free chocolate chip cookie that you don’t have to feel guilty about 🙂

Buckwheat is a naturally gluten-free seed high in easily digestible protein, fiber, and a good source of amino acids. It also has more vitamins, minerals and antioxidants than most grains. This is why using buckwheat flour in baking is especially important when following a plant-based diet. Adding buckwheat flour to this chocolate chip cookie recipe makes this tasty cookie crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside.
