    16 Servings


  • 1/2 cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips, Melted
  • 1/4 cup Butter
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 6 tablespoons Unsweetened Applesauce
  • 1 cup Buckwheat Flour, Plus 2 tablespoons
  • 5 tablespoons Dutch Processed Cocoa

  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 °F and line a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the melted chocolate and coconut oil, brown sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla extract and applesauce. Set aside.
  3. 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.
