Author Cecilie Bresson


  • 90 grams buckwheat flour (3.2 oz)
  • 60 grams almond flour (2.1 oz)
  • 70 grams vegan butter (2.5 oz)
  • 70 grams coconut sugar (2.5 oz)
  • 40 grams brown sugar (1.4 oz)
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 2 tbsp non-dairy milk
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 40 grams slivered almonds (1.4 oz)
  • 40 grams candied orange peel (chopped) (1.4 oz)

Optional Topping

  • 2-3 tbsp cinnamon sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C°/350F° convection.

  2. Make sure that the vegan butter is room temperature as it's going to make the next step easier.

  3. In a mixing bowl, add vegan butter, coconut sugar and brown sugar and mix it together with a hand mixer for 2-3 minutes. Then add the plant milk and whisk again.

  4. In a small mixing bowl, mix buckwheat flour, almond flour, cinnamon, baking powder and baking soda.

  5. Add the flour mixture to the large bowl with the butter/sugar mixture. You can still use a hand mixer to mix it together if you wish or you can simply use a spoon.

  6. Add slivered almonds and chopped candied orange peel and gently mix it with the dough using a spoon.

  7. Line a baking tray with baking paper and add balls of the cookie dough to the tray.

    Make sure to leave a good amount of space between the cookie dough balls as they will spread in the oven. You might need more than one baking tray but remember to only bake one tray of cookies at a time.

  8. Lightly press down on the cookies and sprinkle them with a litlle cinnamon sugar.

  9. Bake the cookies in the oven for 10-12 minutes. The cookies will flatten at lot the last few minutes you do not take your cookies out of the oven too soon.

  10. Let the cookies sit on the hot baking tray for 2-3 minutes and then gently transfer them to a cooling rack using a spatula. The cookies will be soft while they are still hot so be careful.

Recipe Notes

* When baking cookies, the ratio between butter, sugar and flour is very important so please follow the measurements in the recipe as closely as possible.
