  • 0.5 Semisweet Chocolate Chips Melted
  • 0.25 Butter
  • 0.25 Brown Sugar
  • 0.25 Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 6 Unsweetened Applesauce
  • 1 Buckwheat Flour Plus 2 tablespoons
  • 5 Dutch Processed Cocoa
  • 2 Coconut Flour
  • 1.5 Ground Ginger
  • 0.5 Baking Soda
  • 0.5 Salt
  • 1 Candied Ginger Diced
  • 2 Raw Sugar For rolling


  • Preheat the oven to 350 °F and line a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, stir together the melted chocolate and coconut oil, brown sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla extract and applesauce. Set aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the buckwheat flour, cocoa powder, coconut flour, ground ginger, baking soda, and salt. Add this mixture to the wet mixture and stir just until combined. Stir in the diced candied ginger.
  • Roll into 1 1/2” (40-gram) balls, roll in the raw sugar, and place 3” apart on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 9 minutes or until the cookies have crackled.
  • Let the cookies, which will be very soft at this point, cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
