The fennel seeds are optional; you don’t have to use them but they add a wonderful flavour dimension to the whole thing and an extra element of crunch!

  1. Hi Anna, 2 questions….
    One, where do you source the buckwheat flakes, toffee flavdrops… Or are these just standard baking favouring essences, and the Black Beans?
    Two, assuming you pulsed all the ingredients to a coarse grain consistency, does the Black Beans pulp act as enough of a binding element??
    Cheers me dear!

    • I get the toffee flavdrops from; buckwheat either on or a local health food shop. Black beans at waitrose but they’re sold pretty much everywhere (canned and unsalted). I blend it all together and the beans aid with volume really more than binding 🙂

  2. I just made these and I will be making them again and again!!! I may have overcooked them as they were a little dry. I also used 1/2 cup of Splenda, and it made it good, but just a bit bland. A full cup would probably have been perfect. I need to find if the US has anything like your flavdrops!!

    Thank you for what you do.
