This shortbread-like recipe uses buckwheat flour—a legume rather than a grain–but still manages to bring home the cookie while providing about three grams each of protein and MCT’s per cookie.
Really? A sugar-free, wheat-free, dairy-free cookie that's got a snap, a crunch, and a bit of sweet? Pull up a glass of nut milk and enjoy something out of the ordinary.
