Health Highlights


2 cup Buckwheat flour
1 1/2 cup Rolled oats, dry
1/4 cup Brewer's yeast, Lewis Labs
1/4 cup Flaxseed meal (ground)
1 1/2 tbsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Baking soda
1/4 tsp Sea Salt (or pink salt)
1/2 cup Semisweet chocolate chips, mini (opt for dairy free)
3/4 cup Coconut oil (melted)
1/3 cup Maple syrup, pure
1 medium Banana (s) (mashed - use 2 bananas if you omit maple syrup)
1/4 cup Water, filtered
1/4 cup Golden raisin, seedless (rehydrated in water)
1/4 cup Chia seeds
3/4 cup Water, filtered (this water is for the chia seeds)


1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees.

2. Combine chia seeds and 3/4 cup water. Let sit for 5 minutes and stir until it becomes egg-like.

3. Combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl: flour, oats, yeast, flaxseeds, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, salt and chocolate chips.

4. In a separate bowl, combine wet ingredients: coconut oil, maple syrup, banana, water, raisins and chia seed mixture.

5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Mix until fully combined.

6. Drop spoonful on to a greased cookie sheet. You don't have to flatten them with a fork! Just thought I would mention this because that saves you a step! Unless of course you want them to look super pretty, then flatten.

7. Bake for 10-15 minutes. I have a convection oven so they baked in 10 minutes. Keep in mind there is nothing in these cookies that technically has to bake. Do NOT over-bake as this will result in tough cookies. Keep them soft and chewy.



Makes 3 dozen cookies.

Freeze for months or refrigerate.

I suggest you give the batter a taste-test before baking. I didn't make them very sweet, and if you want to add more maple syrup then you can!
