    1. They are healthier because buckwheat flour has no gluten.I guess if you omit the chocolate they would be even more healthier.

  15. Nice photo Nayna. I don't get the whole biscotti thing, but I think that's because I don't drink coffee or tea. Sound lovely though.

  18. So how did these turn out? I often use buckwheat flour, but rarely on it's own. They certainly look good.

    1. Choclette they turned out simply delicious. Only set back was that dough was a little crumbly and it was hard to get them to slice neatly for the second bake. Never the less they tasted divine. Next time I shall drizzle them with some white chocolate too.
