Guilt Free Buckwheat Cookies
Buckwheat Cinnamon Cookie and Fruit Salad Recipe
I can see my cheekbones after gaining over 20lbs this last winter. Three years ago I lost 55lbs on an 800 calorie diet from May of 2015 to September of 2015. The last two months I've lost almost 20lbs. I weight around 147lbs; my goal weight is 135lbs. I eat two meals a day, one meal in the morning and one meal around 430pm. I walk 4 miles a day and do Yantra yoga three times a week. I'm thinking about adding two more days and more moves to my yoga routine rather than weight lifting, thanks to @frankbacon's suggestion. Also, I am taking naps and not working as hard on Steemit articles thanks to @builderofcastles suggestion I need to take time off and rest. He thought I caught the flu because I needed a break. I thought about this for a couple days, and I agree with him.

Mix ingredients together and garnish with Buckwheat cookies
Recipe For Cinnamon cookies
Mix flour with 1/4 cup of sugar and salt. Add hot water 1/4 cup at a time and mix until you have the dough that sticks together and can be kneaded without sticking to your hands.
Knead like bread dough for 10 minutes. Buckwheat doesn't have gluten like wheat. It will not stretch but adding hot water makes the flour pliable. Roll out dough between two sheets of baking parchment paper until an even 1/2 inch thick. The thinner you roll out the dough the crisper the cookies will become when baking. Move dough with parchment paper to cookie sheet. Cut into squares and bake in a pre-heated 450-degree oven for 15 minutes. Before baking mix remaining sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkle over unbaked dough. The cookies will be chewy but not crispy, the dough tends to be tough if baked any longer than 15 minutes.
Move cookies to a cooling tray. I usually double up my cookie recipe and prepare 3 cookie sheets before baking.
1 cup of cookies or 8 ounces equals 160 calories. Buckwheat has a strong nutty flavor and homemade goods with little sugar taste vastly different than store bought products made with the same ingredients. I do not add chemicals to enhance flavor, I add a little salt that is all.
