Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 5 mins
Course Dessert
Servings 6


  • ½ cup + 2 tbsp buckwheat flour
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp corn flour
  • pinch of salt
  • ¼ cup A2 ghee, melted
  • ¼ cup raw sugar
  • ¼ cup powdered jaggery
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • ½ cup chocolate chips/ chocolate chunks


  • Preheat the oven to 180C and line a baking tray with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper (if you’re using the latter, grease well). 
  • Pour the melted ghee into a mixing bowl, then whisk in the raw sugar and jaggery until fluffy.
  • Whisk in the vanilla and milk.
  • Sift in the dry ingredients (buckwheat flour, cocoa powder, corn flour, baking soda and a pinch of salt), then fold gently until your cookie dough comes together.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips/ chocolate chunks.
  • Form 4-5 large cookie dough balls of equal size, or 8-10 smaller balls (depending on preference). Press down gently with the palm of your hand (ensuring that there is about 2 inches space between the cookies)
  • Sprinkle with sea salt (optional) and bake for 8-10 minutes until the edges have just about set but the centre is still soft.
  • Let the cookies cool down before reaching for your first one! If you can, wait for a few hours, as it takes a while for the flavours to fully set for this recipe!
