Buckwheat Oatmeal Cookies

Buckwheat Oatmeal CookiesIt’s hot out today. I hadn’t really intended to turn on the oven, but the kids devoured the granola bars I had made for lunches, so I wanted to make something for their lunchboxes. I’ve been playing around with this recipe lately, and it is delicious both with the raisins and the chocolate chips. In this recipe, I use organic cane sugar and organic butter to give this cookie rich flavor and chewy texture.
