    Looks great! Can you sub whole wheat flour for the buckwheat?

  2. these look great, but i don’t buy that they are “complete” in protein…

      Buckwheat is a complete protein, just like quinoa and soy. The protein quality is slightly lower than chicken or fish, for example, but it is complete 🙂
