Oatmeal Chocolate-Chunk Buckwheat Cookies

One day I’m writing about a detox and the next cookies. Welcome to my world! I missed spending time with butter, sugar and vanilla, not to mention a Pandora playlist of my choosing. So, in preparation for Sunday’s series two premier of Downton Abby I spent some quality time with the aforementioned ingredients and made some special cookies.

These cookies are good, like really, really good.

I had my eye on this recipe for a while after I found it on  The Little Red House. Her photography is much better than mine, so head on over there and swoon after you make these cookies. I made a few modifications to the original awesome recipe.

I decreased the sugar and all purpose flour. And, I added nutty, buckwheat flour. I ended up with cinnamony, chocolately, nutty, oatmealy cookies. YUM-O!

Enjoy with a glass of milk, soy or cow, 5 minutes after you pull them from the oven.
