Gluten-Free Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chunk Cookies


Gluten-Free Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chunk Cookies
As today is national Cookie Day in the United States I thought I would do a cookie recipe for you. In my recipe I wanted to use some of my favorite ingredients and let's face it peanut butter and chocolate has to be one of the best combinations out there.

I do not eat a gluten free diet but I do like to limit the amount of gluten in my diet so decided to make these cookies gluten free. So I decided to use Buckwheat Flour which is probably my favorite gluten free flour, it has such a lovely flavor and just works perfectly in all my baked goods.

One of the best things about buckwheat is that it is not actually a grain and is in fact a seed which makes it perfect for anyone that is avoiding grains in their diet. This also leads to a number of health benefits including a reduced risk of high cholesterol and high blood pressure. It is also thought that consuming buckwheat can help to balance blood sugar and reduce the risk of diabetes. Buckwheat is also a good source of insoluble fiber which has a lot of health benefits including the fact that it can help prevent gallstones. It is also worth mentioning that a lot of studies have shown that buckwheat could be as good for you as fruit and vegetables so is a great addition to any diet. In terms of minerals, buckwheat is an excellent source of manganese and copper and well as having a good about of magnesium and phosphorus. So although these are yummy, tasty cookies they actually have some really great health benefits.

Other great things in these cookies are the fact it contains low sodium salt giving a good balance of potassium and sodium and then there is the xylitol which is a sugar alcohol and naturally appears in fruits like berries and plums. It is actually sweeter than sugar so you need less and it has a much smaller effect on your blood sugar and is a good alternative for keeping your blood sugar balanced.
Ok I now feel like I am banging on about health and taking the pleasure out of these cookies. Ultimately they taste really great and will be a treat the whole family will enjoy.
