  • Conventional oven
  • Mixing bowl x 2
  • Baking tray
  • Parchment paper


  • 1 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/2 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 flax egg 1 tbsp flax seeds + 2 tbsp water, set aside left 10 minutes
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil melted
  • 1/4 cup plant based milk
  • 8 large vegan chocolate buttons or 1/3 cup vegan chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C/350 F.
  • Combine the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl: brown rice flour, buckwheat flour, coconut sugar, baking powder and baking soda.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, combine the wet ingredients: apple cider vinegar, flax egg, vanilla extract and coconut oil. 
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix together until a crumbly mixture forms. Then, add the plant based milk and continue mixing to form a dough, using your hands if necessary. 
  • Using around 2 tbsp dough per cookie, roll the dough into balls and press them down slightly on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. If you want to, you can add chocolate chips to the dough, but I added a large chocolate button in the middle of each cookie.
  • Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes until golden brown, and leave to cool for around 5-10 minutes before eating.
