  1. I really want to try this! however, there’s a couple of little issues with the recipe.
    1. directions, step 1 says “3/4 arrowroot starch”. 3/4 tbsp, cup? probably cup.

    2. ingredients call for 1 cup of buckwheat flour. I do not see in directions where this is used. it doesn’t form part of the “high protein flour blend”.
