Buckwheat Peanut Butter Cookies
Buckwheat and peanuts are a match made in heaven. These peanut butter cookies with Buckwheat and Amaranth flour are a healthy snacking option during fasting season.
I am not saying these can't be had otherwise.
These cookies are crunchy on the edges and slightly chewy in the centre. Enjoy them with a cup of tea or coffee.
