You can keep them in the fridge and they are just as great reheated. Top with fruit or Benitta’s special coconut cream that leads to a tropical tasting with the most divine bitty melty texture.

Both buckwheat and rice flour are good staples to have in the kitchen for people who suffer from celiac disease. Buckwheat flour is very rich in magnesium and phosphorus both of which help build strong bones and teeth along with also stabilising blood sugar.
