We can’t vouch for the exact level of sweetness in these cookies, but they only have 1/3 cup of sugar in the entire batch (two dozen) and the buckwheat makes them look pretty healthy. Maybe a nice antidote to all the Halloween candy we ate over the weekend…

This recipe comes from a larger article on buckwheat in the Los Angeles Times. Because buckwheat is a seed, not a grain, buckwheat flour is particularly crumbly (there’s regular flour added in this cookie dough for structure).

The thought of a tender, nutty cookie sounds perfect right about now—a great snack with afternoon tea or coffee that wouldn’t induce a sugar high.
