Double Chocolate Orange Buckwheat Cookies

This is the best cookie you'd have tasted! The chocolate and hint of orange make this cookie irresistible! This cookie has buckwheat flour incrreasing the nutritional profile. With so many plus points, this is a great one to make every time and enjoy with friends and family! With this new twist in double chocolate orange cookies, Santa would love to have a few! Make sure to leave a couple more:-)

Buckwheat aka kuttu (in Hindi) is very good for health and is gluten-free. This cookie has both all-purpose and buckwheat flour giving the best of both the textures and flavors. If you do not have buckwheat, try making with all-purpose flour, the flavor may be slightly different, but delicious though!

The cookies stay at room temperature for a week. I had to sneak a few to try, but beyond that I couldn't check as it was gone. The cookie thieves find the right spots to enjoy this cookie! Well, it is amazing and is expected! These are guaranteed to be gone at the blink of an eye!
