- Meanwhile in a mixing bowl combine the yolks, along with the rest of the maply syrup and coconut oil and combine until very smooth. Using a spatula in thirds add the cacao and buckwheat flour.

- In a separate bowl add the salt to the egg whites and using an electric beater mix until soft peaks
- In thirds fold egg whites into cacao mix and combine.
