Buckwheat, not actually "wheat" is a seed which is used as a gluten-free grain. Not only is buckwheat a good source of fibre but it also is a great source of protein with all 9 essential amino acids. 

I always use Niulife coconut oil when I make treats.  Niulife is a social enterprise, their products are certified organic, ethically produced and sustainably sourced with 100% of the profits going back to the Pacific Island communities which produce it. 

INGREDIENTS:

Dark Choc Drizzle

  • 1 tbsp cacao butter, melted
  • 1 + 1/2 tbsp cacao
