Easy to make, dairy free, eggless, and gluten free, these delicious Mango buckwheat cookies are certainly worth a try. Buckwheat is high in protein and minerals so here comes in Cookies which is Gluten free and replaces unhealthy refined flour and mango enhances it flavor. I have added on top for additional taste and these cookies were awesome in taste

I have tried different brands of Buckwheat (Kuttu ka atta) flour, while some are good , few were bitter. So, yes, flour does affect the taste of the cookies so make sure you use a good quality buckwheat flour. Buckwheat flour is an acquired taste so In case you do not have buckwheat flour, you can easily use Amaranth or Water chestnut flour too as replacement

Since I am a big fan of Mango, I have a good collection of mango recipes on my blog. You can check out my Mango recipes collection so far an buckwheat cookies, by clicking on the link below:

Do watch the video for better clarity in preparation and share your experience once you prepare the cookies

Notes:

*Use good quality Buckwheat flour, else cookies will taste slightly bitter

*Adjust sweetness of the cookies as per the sweetness of the mango puree, for more stronger taste, add few drops of mango essence if desired

**Do not shape the cookies into thick/fat cookies else you would end up with cakey centers

**Since it already contains leavening agent, it will puff up while baking so it’s best to flatten them and cool cookie dough will prevent it from spreading while baking

**For more crisp texture, just bake them additionally, 4-6 min at reduced temp of 150 deg Celsius. Do not over bake these cookies else it would become dry

*** For vegan version, use coconut oil , however, this can also alter the taste of the cookies
