*To make buckwheat flour, simply blend buckwheat groats in a high powered blender. Try not to over blend, so that there are still a few chunks in there. This will give it a nice biscuit texture.

½ cup organic maple syrup
¼ cup coconut butter*
4 drops of peppermint essential oil
1 teaspoon vanilla paste
2 pinches of Himalayan Salt
