Discovery of New Flavors

We want to bake cookies unlike any other, which means that we use unconventional ingredients.  Take a look at our list, and you'll see why the Buckwheat Cookies are one of a kind.

Buckwheat * - It's the small, triangular seed-like fruit from flowering buckwheat plants.  Despite its name, buckwheat is not related to wheat, and is gluten-free.  A super source of protein and magnesium. The Japanese love their soba noodles, the French their crepes, and for Eastern Europeans kasha is a staple.  And we love it for its hardy, earthy, toasty goodness.

Almonds * - The seed of the fruit of almond trees.  Rich in protein, great source of vitamin E, and high in monosaturated fats.  One of the most versatile nuts - whole for snacking, chopped for garnishing a sweet or savory dish, and ground for a rich almond meal.  It's what makes our cookie rich and nutty.

Tapioca - Extracted from the cassava root plant. Slightly sweet, and a great source of carbohydrates.  Tapioca brings out the flavors of the buckwheat and almonds that creates our flour blend.

Agave Nectar * - An unrefined sweetener from the agave plant.  Consisting primarily of fructose, a sugar with a low effect on blood sugar levels, a lower glycemic index than cane sugar.  The sweetness is clean and robust.

Coconut Palm Sugar * - An unrefined sugar from the nectar of the coconut blossoms that is boiled until crystallized. Nutrient rich and low glycemic.  Subtly sweet with a hint of caramel, and a great complement to the agave nectar.

Coconut Oil * - Oil extracted from mature coconuts. Provided the primary source of fat in the diets of millions for generations in tropical cultures.  High in lauric acid, which possess many properties beneficial to health.

Safflower Oil * - Oil extracted from the seeds of safflowers.  The monosaturated safflower oil is higher in essential fatty acids Omega-3 and Omega-6 than other oils.

Dried Unsulphured Apricots - Dried without preservatives to maintain the maximum in flavor and zing.  Loaded with fiber and high in beta-carotene. 

Cacao Nibs * - Chopped cacao beans.  High potassium, magnesium and antioxidant levels. 

Unsweetened Chocolate - Pure chocolate liquor with cocoa butter.  Not an ounce of sugar. 

Dried Unsulphured Currants - Dried without preservatives.  Smaller than raisins with a tart taste.

* Certified Organic Ingredients

Some ingredients are milled on equipment that processes wheat.  The cookies are baked in a facility that uses wheat, dairy, eggs and occasionally peanuts.
